Welcome to the Malt Shovel


The Kent country pub in the heart of the people and community of Dartford

A traditional pub which offers a great selection of Real Ales and home cooked food.  The Malt Shovel is a bit different, we don’t have Sky TV,  gaming machines or juke boxes.  What we do have is a warm welcome and a venue where you can meet your loved ones, friends and colleagues alike. We have an open fire in the lounge and historic tap bar, lovely beer garden, all of which can be used for private dining, parties and functions. We have been voted into CAMRAs good beer guide since 2009 and have been awarded a certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor for our food.  There's lots going on too;  quizzes, golf society, live music and lots more, check out the what's on page.
