Nick Davies left this review about The Malt Shovel

Another more-restaurant-than-pub affair so common in the semi-rural areas surrounding big cities. This one is all varnished pine inside, making it feel vaguely like Austrian gasthof. Fancy food, you won't get a snack. That FB gives the food times, which are reflected on this page, is telling - it is in fact open all day.

We gave the Sharps Atlantic a miss, judging that at 4pm on a Monday the pump probably hadn't seen use for 24 hours and stuck to eurofizz. At the thick end of nine quid for a pint of the aforementioned, a J2O, and a packet of cheese and onion unaccountably imported from Ireland, you don't come here looking for a bargain. These places go on about the local provenance of their food, yet the fact that there's a brewery (Silhill) four miles away and the crisp capital of the world (Leicester) isn't very far is beyond them.

The garden is lovely, but if it's a proper pub you're looking for, there's a great one just down the road.
