Name: The Malt Shovel - Location: Elland

Address: 8 Briggate, Elland, West Yorkshire, HX5 9DP [01422 373189]
Always in support of the Samuel Smiths Brewery - although very concerned about the current company strategy towards its staff and customers, as exercised by the Directors. We believe in promoting common sense, decency, compassion, fairness and compliance with company, employment and English law.

Been here today, but it was closed. >:(   As you can see maybe it was the roadworks to blame.

Been past here this lunchtime and it appeared shut, this was at 12.20pm. So ended up going to the Colliers Arms instead.Anyone know why it is shut or is it just the managers day off?

Went into The Malt Shovel today, not the best SS pub. Rather tired decor and and no real charm. Had some strange signs up on the wall. Staff & locals seem friendly enough but preferred the Colliers Arms further up the road.

Must say I do prefer the Colliers Arms over the Malt. As you say it is rather tired on my last visit. Doesn't have alot of charm either.

The Malt Shovel is a truly awful pub. Like your dead grandparents living room, with the same charisma.
