Dear Jen, Thank you for your review in relation to staying with us feedback is always appreciated. I made it clear to you from the start there are the 3 grades of room that are available at The Grove and the £20 upgrade was for the room that you had - the ones upstairs are not let through the wowcher...

My owners had been given a one night B&B stay as a Christmas present, chosen because it was dog friendly. I was welcomed with kind words and a treat before being shown to our Room - number 6. I like the look of the small residents snug but we were too busy to use it. The room was warm and... More

Hi Mollie, Thank you for visiting us!!! When you came in you were so unsure of your surroundings and it was a pleasure to see you really come out of your shell during your stay with us - I think the breakfast helped I can imagine you were most concerned when Charlie nearly forgot you BUT he saved the day...

We arrived at The Grove Arms to a lovely welcome from Charlie. He got us checked in very quickly and was kind enough to carry a bag up to our room for us. He was very kind and courteous and showed a keen interest in us and our journey. We stayed in room 4 which was a really well appointed... More

Beau!!!!!!! Hello there!! Thank you for your review - I love the fact you particularly mentioned The Grove's mantra in the first sentence "Nothing is too much trouble" because indeed it is not!

Nina and staff eager to make stay and whole experience one to remember and to share. Food amazing Saturday night we both had mushrooms with stilton sauce as starter, then differed and had fish risotto and mussels as mains, both were well presented, tasty and filling. Breakfast did not disappoint us or our dog who was equally welcomed to enjoy... More

Despite an entrance that threatened to wreck the pub - my wife managed to knock a picture frame off the wall as she was trying to hang our coats up while introducing ourselves and collecting our keys - much to the amusement of the staff and locals there at the time. Our room number three was comfortable with all the... More

Spent two enjoyable nights. Friendly, welcoming and helpful. Nina and her staff turning this local inn into a 'place to go to' - a work in progress but don't wait, go now. The best surprise was the food. We had 'Posh Cottage Pie' the first night - made with slow cooked steak - which was delicious. Surpassed second night by... More
