The Malt Shovel Inn is set in the beautiful surroundings of The Royal Forest of Dean.
Being situated on the edge of Gloucestershire we`re just 10 minutes away from Gloucester, Monmouthshire and Herefordshire. With major motorways close by, road links and travel plans are made easy.
Established in 1110, and beautifully restored, this inn makes the perfect place to stop. Stay for a few nights or just drop in for a meal, or glass of Real Ale, in a place steeped in the atmosphere of the Wye Valley. An unusual fact is that this inn is also the home of Horlicks. Horlicks was invented in Ruardean.
