great food, better service

Welcome to The Malt Shovel, Cannington

The Malt Shovel Inn is under New Ownership.

We aim to deliver beautifully crafted pub classic food and exemplary customer service. We want to be the local everyone needs.

Boasting a cosy intimate bar, complimented by original beams and inglenook fireplaces, the Malt Shovel screams comfort & tradition. In addition, you’ll find a large restaurant area leading on to our very own suntrap, the beer garden. Here you’ll find ample seating and a children’s play area. Therefore the Malt Shovel is the perfect venue for everyone in the family, all week through.

Nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of the Quantocks, the Malt Shovel sits just outside the village of Cannington. As a result you’ll find us a stones throw from the A39 Bridgwater to Minehead road.

If you find yourself looking for somewhere to stay for leisure or business then consider one of our 8 en-suite bedrooms. Located at the rear of the property, each bedroom offers comfort, 32” televisions and views of the countryside. We cater for singles, couples and families. Likewise we will always strive to cater for groups where possible.

In the area for business? We are ideally located for those visiting Hinkley Point. You’ll find the nearest Park and Ride a 5 minute drive away. Bridgwater is less than 15 minutes away and Taunton less than 30 minutes. Heading further afield? Exeter and Bristol are reachable in just over an hour.

We Love Sundays!

Sunday is typically the final day of the weekend. The last day before going back to work. 

Not for us! We love Sundays! Why? Our Sunday Carvery of course. Tender locally sourced meats. Seasonal Vegetables. Homemade Yorkshire puddings. Crispy roast potatoes. Secret recipe gravy. What more could you want?

Join us on Sundays and see finish your week off in the best way. Booking is recommended to ensure you do not miss out.
