Malt Shovel

Landlord Richard Mills and family have been left devastated by a serious fire which destroyed part of the 250 year old Malt Shovel, a popular pub and restaurant in Hartshill, on the outskirts of Nuneaton, in the early hours of 14th March.
Swift action by the local fire & rescue services from Nuneaton and the surrounding areas managed to limit the spread of the fire to the rear of the property. The main body of the pub has suffered some damage but the family’s living quarters, to the rear of the pub have been totally destroyed.
