Part of the Butcombe Brewery family for a few years now, The Malt Shovel in Cannington excels in providing sumptuous homemade food, a warm and welcoming atmosphere and, most importantly, a quality pint of real ale.

We stepped inside and immediately began to unwind in the mellow atmosphere. En route to the bar we checked out the tasty specials, and then found ourselves deliberating over the excellent range of Butcombe and 'brewer of the month' ales. To start we ordered box-baked Camembert with toasted bread and mixed berry chutney, and deep-fried whitebait served with homemade tartare sauce and brown bread. Both were delicious and generous in equal measure, setting the bar for the high standard of food and service that continued throughout the evening.

While my companion savoured the fantastic fish pie, I had the homemade Thai red vegetable curry served with fluffy rice and poppadoms - quite simply one of the best main courses I've had in a long time. I'm not sure how we managed to do any justice to the delicious cheesecake and the homemade sticky toffee pudding, but they went very well with the freshly ground coffees we relaxed with at the end of the evening.
