Refurbishment Planned at Well-Known Local

The Malt Shovel is a community pub located on a prominent Leeds-Bradford through road. Over 5,000 adults live within walking distance to the pub and it is well known locally. We are now planning a significant investment of over £198,000 to help The Malt Shovel meet it's true potential.

With the addition of a new catering kitchen, the pub will be repositioned in the market as a premium community pub. It will offer quality food for a fair price. A focus on a premium Sunday lunch offer will be key for trade.

All trading areas of the pub will be refurbished, including the large beer garden.


Experienced Local Operator Wanted

The perfect operator for the new-and-improved Malt Shovel will know the area well. They will have previous experience running pubs and understand the importance of great food and great customer service.

Trading Area & Facilities

Inside, the pub is split into two trading areas - a main bar and a dining room. All trading areas will be refurbished. Post refurbishment, the pub will be able to accommodate circa 86 covers inside.

In the bar, we will add new fixed seating. We will also add new timber flooring and restore the original fireplace. The bar itself will receive an eye catching overhead glass gantry and new wash-up area. New lighting and decorative pieces will be added.

In the dining room, we will replace the existing flooring with new carpet. We will add new furniture, lighting and artwork.

Outside, we will create new signage for the pub. We propose a name change to 'The Malt' in order to signify a new era. The beer garden will receive new bench-style seating and lighting.


Applicants should be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process.
