Forest of Dean, Ruardean
Forest of Dean
The Malt Shovel inn is set in the beautiful surroundings of the Forest of Dean on the border of the three counties-Gloucestershire, Monmouthshire and Herefordshire! With easy links to major motorways route planning is made simple.
Established in 1110 and beautifully restored this inn makes the perfect place to stop. Stay for a few nights or just drop in for a meal or glass of Real Ale in a place steeped in the atmosphere of the Wye Valley. An unusual fact is that this inn is also the home of Horlicks; Horlicks was invented in Ruardean.
