Nice real ale pub just out of the main town, there was a beer festival on at the time of my visit and the place was very well attended, unfortunately my pint of Thornbridge Wild Swan was on the cusp of its use by date, that aside this seems to be a cracking pub.

In south end of town on a busy road but worth seeking out. Old signage on the walls, jugs hanging from the ceiling, cosy neat interior, lots of good ales, good service and a fine pub

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Malt Shovel Tavern

Top-of-the-range real ale pub, with a partially opened-out interior but crammed full of breweriana and reinvigorated with plenty of character (and naturally, as a result, customers). Mix of seating areas on three sides of the bar - with almost all seats taken on an otherwise ordinary Wednesday evening. Great choice of real ales from most of the 14 handpumps, with the others being changed over in quick time. I went for the Nethergate Mild (£2.80), but there was a wide range of beer styles from mostly local breweries on offer. Excellent!
