We enjoyed a lovely meal at The Grove. The wait staff were very friendly and welcoming. We ordered a cocktail and wine on arrival and soon after we ordered our meals. Unfortunately the meals arrived before the pre dinner drinks which was a little disappointing. This may have happened due to a shortage in wait staff but it didn’t spoil our evening.
We were very happy with our meals, salt and pepper calamari and Caesar salad with prawns.
We then ordered some Fowles Chardonnay which was chilled perfectly and we were able to then go and sit outside to enjoy the lovely evening.
The ambience is lovely both inside and out.
Would definitely return to The Grove.

Ambiance was amazing, food and service was great. Unfortunately the beverage that was served was over 6 months old and especially when it comes to Ales you can tell the difference. Without fuss they replaced it with no charged. I will definitely come back here regardless.

Great Restaurant for four of us to celebrate Christmas lunch together this year! The tables were well spaced apart, decor was fresh and festive and the staff gave us plenty of time between courses. Food was fabulous with so many different dishes to try. The staff looked after us well and the manager checked in with us at the end of the day to make sure we enjoyed ourselves.
Great lunch out - Big Thank You to The Grove!

Pre Christmas catch up with some of the family

Really disappointed that there were not some festive items on the menu as it felt just like any other day

Could not find the menu on line so left it to chance the menu would be good

Wanted it to be special as the setting of the Grove is just gorgeous, Food we ordered was great and service exceptional as always
