We Will Be Opening on August 5th!!

Great news!! We will be opening from August 5th and are looking forward to seeing everyone.

A charming countryside pub in Solihull with an easy atmosphere for drinking and dining. Our food is cooked with care and presented with flair using fresh seasonal ingredients.


The Malt Shovel at Barston is a delightful village pub set in picturesque Warwickshire countryside close to the N.E.C. and Solihull. Our busy bar has an easy atmosphere for both drinking and dining with real fires in the winter and a summer patio overlooking the beautiful garden.

Our separate restaurant is both relaxed and inviting, situated in a converted barn decorated with natural wood and pastels, perfect for small informal parties and receptions.


Our food, prepared by Max and his dedicated team, is cooked with care and presented with flair using fresh seasonal ingredients. He is constantly surprising us with his modern take on traditional dishes and is especially well known for his daily fish specials board.

Being privately owned we are passionate about what we do and have built an excellent reputation , both locally and with visitors, for innovation and consistency.
