The Malt Shovel Inn

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 20 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.

 On arrival we was shown to our room by a very helpful member of staff who informed us of the breakfast times for the duration of our stay. The room was a big family room with an ensuit bathroom and a beautiful view of the countryside. The room had the facilities to be able to make hot drinks. You could not hear any noise from the pub below which was great as we had a young child with us. The staff was amazing and the stay was perfect.
