The Malt Shovel Inn is situated conveniently off Junction 12 of the M40 – we are only two minutes from the slip road – making us the perfect break in your journey, a place to stop for a business lunch, or just a great pub to come for some home cooked food and welcoming atmosphere.
“I would just like to write and congratulate you on running a great pub and restaurant!”

“It has been ever such a long time since my family enjoyed such a fulfilling experience”
You can get a drink and choose from 4 real ales, eat a snack or three-course meal at lunchtime or in the evening, seven days a week. We have a restaurant, a welcoming bar, and a unique ‘stage’ area where you can relax on a comfy sofa below a stained glass window. Be warned, you won’t want to leave!
We are between Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick, Royal Leamington Spa and Banbury. Why not visit the South Warwickshire Tourist Board to see what’s available to you in the area? Click here. Gaydon has several nearby attractions for kids and adults, visit our information page for more details.
