Went to the maltshovel with the kids after trying another pub which was too busy. The kids were given a picture to colour and was entered into a competition to win a free kids meal. The meal that we had was lovely and the service was very friendly. I would highly recommend!

This pub really lets its self down with its food. After travelling up by tram and then walking for half an hour with three hungry adults and one very hungry child we got to the Malt Shovel to find yes it's open, yes kids are welcome and yes there is food but if your vegetarian you can foget eating here. They don't do vegetarian options on a sunday! Of course i fogot that being a vegetarian we don't eat out on sundays as it's against our religion! For a pub that claims to be a food pub it seems that they are stuck in the dark ages and need to pull there head out of the carverys backside. We didn't stay for a drink because ignorance does not get my money. This pub needs to get itself sorted. Very Poor.

Had a very nice meal here recently, cooked as I'd asked and the service was really excellent. It was a shame that the hand-pull beer was off on that occasion but I've had a decent pint here in the past.

Has onesexylady actually BEEN to the 'shovel recently? One visit does not entitle anyone to write such a damning review, regardless of how far up their own bum their head is.

I am a regular & quite honestly, yes there have been times when the pub was a little sub-standard. But if onesexylady would have bothered to enquire WHY these standards were there, she would have found out it WASN'T the new management's fault, but the outgoing lease owners who were being downright spiteful and unprofessional. The management actually worked their arses off trying to keep the place open!

Standards had not fallen as badly as onesexylady claims & I believe she was on some sort of prescription medication when she visited/wrote the review.

onesexylady - go there now & show how nice you are by reviewing the place properly. But judging by your review of The Bowman, you seem pretty reluctant to actually enjoy yourself, so get a life first.
