The Malt Shovel Inn

The Malt Shovel Inn at Gaydon is situated conveniently just under 2 miles from Junction 12, making it a "real" break just off the motorway. A place to stop for a business lunch or just a great pub to come for some home cooked food and welcoming atmosphere.

You can choose from our selection of real ales, wines or soft drinks. We have a unique ‘stage’ area where you can relax on a comfy sofa below a stained glass window. Or take a seat in our restaurant and have three-course meal or a snack, at lunchtime or in the evening, seven days a week.

Be warned, you won’t want to leave!
