Will Larter left this review about The Malt Shovel

The sign on the front of this typical Yorkshire stone building says Bass Yorkshire, and the A-board promises four cask ales. Inside there are four hand pumps OK, but when I called in on a quiet Saturday afternoon they were only serving Black Sheep and Tetleys bitter.

The furniture was mostly dining tables and chairs, there was a miscellany of pictures on the walls, including a fine action shot of Istabraq winning one of his three Champion Hurdles. A collection of mugs, jugs and tankards of many types adorned one of the walls and there was a back door to the garden. A rather persistent smell of cooking fat didn't add anything to my enjoyment of the Tetleys, which was not as good as I have had elsewhere.
