The Malt Shovel

Possibly the best Real Ale pub in Northampton and possibly the world (an Homage to the Carlsberg Brewery opposite). Roughly a dozen real ales always on tap, always well kept, run by the owner and his family, blues bands on Wednesdays, Food lunchtimes, parking in Morrison's car park behind the pub, close to Aladdin's Balti hut for a cracking curry.
