Award for the Malt Shovel in Horsham

CAMRA North Sussex branch have awarded their annual Pub of the Year award to the Malt Shovel in Horsham. Sam and his team have revitalised the pub, with up to seven real ales now available, along with a warm welcome, great atmosphere and regular music nights.

The Malt Shovel now goes forward to the vote for CAMRA Sussex pub of the year, up against pubs from St Leonards, Lewes, Worthing and Nyetimber.

Runners up this year were the Brewery Shades on Crawley High Street as well as the winners from the least two years, the White Horse at Maplehurst and the Jolly Tanners in Staplefield.

The branch welcomes real ale and cider enthusiasts, holding monthly meetings in North Sussex as well as organising trips further afield. Visit, our website or email or join us at
