Malt Shovel Pub

We look forward to welcoming you to The Malt Shovel in Hovingham.

Tucked away amid the Howardian Hills, in the Duchess of Kent's home village, the stone-built 18th-century Malt Shovel offers a friendly and traditional atmosphere with good-value food prepared from quality local ingredients.

Our Dining Room can accommodate approximately 34 people and the "Snug" Dining Room can accommodate approximately 12. If you could like to book for a large party or to check availability please give us a call or drop us an e-mail.

We also have a large beer garden at the rear of the pub where you can sit out and enjoy a pint or two in lovely surroundings. We are pleased to say we are Cask Marque Accredited. This means we have been inspected and passed a number of strict tests on our Ale’s and the environment that they are kept. This scheme ensures you get the perfect pint!
