We have visited Malt Shovel for a meal after our daughter’s baptism. We had roast dinner the best we have ever had before. Service was exceptional. Dessert to die for. They have made the day even more special. Thank you.

We were touring around Harrogate and Ripon when we came across The Malt Shovel and decided to stop for lunch. Great atmosphere, nostalgic decor and the salmon we ate was beautifully presented and delicious.
