Tucked down an alleyway just of Beeston high street is the malt Shovel. A large one roomed pub with high ceilings and the bar on the far left as you enter. There were five real ales on the bar with harvest pale being regular at (£3.20). They do have regularly changing guest beers but I appeared to have come on a particularly bland night with Doombar, bombardier and Oakham Citra (£3.30) being available with the final pump unoccupied. My Citra was in good condition but I couldn’t help feeling a little underwhelmed after hearing so many good things. Things were not helped by the pub being rather quiet on my Saturday night visit and were lacking a bit of atmosphere due because of it, but maybe I just caught it at a bad time. Overall I can tell it is a good pub that maintains a good pint that I will call back in again to see if I just happened to catch it on a particular flat night/poor selection.

This is a decent traditional pub with a good relaxed atmosphere, serving a varied selection of well kept ales. The pub consists of a good sized lounge, with the bar situated in the left hand corner. The areas on the right were separated by an internal wall. The barman was friendly and chatty and this was a nice welcome on our arrival. Five ales to choose from, so we went for the Kelham Island Easy Rider and the Blue Monkey Funky Gibbon. The pub also had bench seating out front.

24/04/13 Nice little off the high street pub serving some good Nottingham brewery ales. Much better than the other three high street pubs, this place is well worth a quick visit. I have been drinking here on and off for thirty years and in my opinion, it is a better place since they modernised it.

30/11/13 Popped in for a pint during the Beeston Christmas light switch on. Perfect pint of Nottingham EPA. Still the best pub on the high road, however there are now only 3 with the demise of the Prince of Wales.
