user reviews of Malt Shovel, Spondon

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Malt Shovel is a Marstons pub hidden away in Spondon. But the interior is well worth seeing with plenty of rooms and lots of nooks and crannies, creating a cosy atmosphere. I arrived as the lunchtime rush was subsiding. But staff were still busy with diners. There was also a large function taking place (possibly a wake?) in one room. 5 ales are generally on. 3 are on handpull and 2 are dispensed by gravity. Be sure to check the blackboard to see the full range of ales (all from Marstons) and ciders. Today there was Marstons Pedigree & 61 Deep, Brakspear Bitter, Wychwood Hobgolin, Banks's Sunbeam & Westons Old Rosie & Rosie's Pig. Bar service was efficient. Toilets are outside at the rear. Decent pub, despite only stocking Marstons ales.

Visted 19/8/10, 7.45pm

Cracking little pub this. 3 beers on handpump and 5 or 6 on gravity.
My first pint (Jennings Cumberland) was bad but the Marstons Burton Bitter and Jennings Cocker Hoop were in fine form. Easy to reach on the bus and definitely worth the trip.

Easily one of the best suburban pubs in Derby.

Split into two sections - one with several old, small rooms with inglenooks, small fireplaces and original features - and the other larger more akin to a social club with pool table and main eating area.

Excellent array of ales both local and national (mostly brought up from the seller).

Friendly for the most part - a must visit if in the Spondon area.
