Welcome to the Malt Shovel in Harden

Welcome back to the newly refurbished Malt.

After undergoing major refurbishment of £400,000, but whilst still keeping the original character of the building, The Malt has taken on a new look. It is a classic rural pub which is reputed to have been constructed in 1550. It has taken on many faces, including a court room and a prison, of which the famous cell room still exists.  A new Orangery has been added, seating 40 people, and the beer garden has also been extended, seating 130 people. We have included a history room giving you all the information you will need to know about the Malt itself and the surrounding area.

We welcome all methods of transport making each and every person feel comfortable, with a hitching rail and trough to keep your horse happy and dog water bowls dotted inside and outside the pub. We also have bike racks and, of course, a large car park. Enjoy a walk up Goit Stock which is just across the road, making us the perfect location to visit after an afternoon of walking / riding / cycling.

Stop off for a drink or a delicious meal and maybe sit beside one of the three open fires to take off the chill on a cold winter’s day.

Our homemade traditional food is served every day with our specials board changing weekly to add new variety to our menu.

Please come along and try out our beautiful Theakstons ales alongside our classic food. We will not disappoint!
