The Malt Shovel is a community locals' pub situated in Glasshoughton, half a mile north of junction 32 on the M62, and a mile from Castleford town centre. The pub is conveniently placed for the Xscape complex and Junction 32 designer outlet.
Cask ales were introduced in 2015 and trade has responded well to the range of guest beers on offer. Home-cooked food is served every day, including a popular breakfast menu and Sunday carvery.
Trading areas consist of a public bar and lounge which is used for dining, serviced by a fully equipped catering kitchen. A shower is also available for lorry drivers from the M62 who use the facility before having their evening meal. To the rear is a smoking area and car park. The Malt Shovel offers an excellent opportunity to further develop trade.
