Secretly Famous™ for…

Operatic performance nights where diners can expect a four course meal crammed full of Swiss influenced delicacies

Swiss born Jürg and Jane work alongside their son D’Arcy and daughter-in-law Anna to bring a personal touch that is borne from nearly fifty years of passion for food and wine.

From the moment you enter this 16th Century building in the heart of Brearton, you will be confronted by the ancient oak beams, big leather chairs and flag stone floors. Wonderful open fires that were rediscovered and brought back to life in 2006 add real character and the original bar, made from old church panelling is charming. Pianos accompany fine singers who entertain on Operatic Performance Nights. The Bleiker family regularly invite their friends from the world of Opera to come to The Malt Shovel for one of these truly sensational evenings.

There are several defined areas of the undoubtedly unique restaurant; you can experience the new Conservatory with its piano, ferns and draped ceiling, relax and unwind in The Monkey Area, enjoy the warm and intimate atmosphere of the more private Red Room or appreciate the elegance of the Green Room which seems to encourage those long, memorable evenings of fine food, fine wine and hearty company.

Head chef Jürg has developed an a la carte menu that beautifully complements locally sourced produce; from their smoked fish dishes courtesy of their onsite kiln to their homemade bread, made daily with only five ingredients. All dishes are made from scratch using the finest, freshest of ingredients. And this is why you should seek them out!

Food & wine:
Jürg and Jane’s knowledge of food and their sincere passion for fresh, local, high quality, traceable and sustainable ingredients have been blended to create a beautiful and diverse menu. The belly pork and home-made sausages (same pigs!) come from D’Arcy’s Gloucester Old Spots and are smoked by Jürg in the kiln at the pub, it’d be hard to find a more local ingredient! The wines (Jürg‘s secret passion) have been hand picked to suit all palates and purses.
