Went for lunch today with my family. It was our first visit so didn't know what to expect. We arrived and parked easily. Immediately we weere greeted on the front lawn by snorts... much to my daughter's delight were two very cute pigs in their (very clean and well looked after) pen. So after saying hello and dodging the falling... More

Spent 1 night at the hotel. It was very quirky, interesting and inviting. The staff were lovely and made us feel at home. We had dinner and breakfast which were very nice. There could have been more choice on the menu for dinner. The bedrooms were different. The bathrooms were a little outdated but sufficient.also there could have been a... More

We only stayed for one night, but loved the place and the people. Lovely location, nice quirky atmosphere and decor, good food, all of which was greatly enhanced by the team, with specific mention for Megan, Katie, Louise and Jules. Good luck to the Grove Ferry and Yummy Pubs. I don\'t normally give 5 stars but you guys deserve it.

Lovely quaint pub and restaurant. Rooms charming with lots of character. The menu is varied and the children's menu was good value and plentiful. The staff are friendly without being intrusive and nothing is too much trouble. Definitely worth a visit if just for a meal, a stay or a pint of local ale. The food is sourced locally and... More

I had my birthday party at The Grove Ferry and had the most amazing weekend! From a relaxing meal on the decking over looking the river, to a formal sit down meal, to a full monty breakfast the morning after the night before...the staff at the pub looked after everything we could have needed. The little touches like maps and... More

Stayed on business. First off check in simple. Friendly staff and helpful. Huge room overlooking the river. Restaurant and bar very good. Real ale from the barrel. All sorts of animals running around outside, loved the goat!! Breakfast great. Only negative point, main train line and level crossing 30m from hotel which was a bit noisy.

We stay in a lot of hotels and we have a lot of meals out so are harsh critics. This place is quite something. All of the staff genuinely love working there and each one offers a service as though it's their own business. Room overlooking the river was great, massive bed, real coffee & popcorn were lovely little touches.... More

I arrived to a very warm welcome, shown to my room which was very nice with a balcony over looking the river. The room was very large and modern. I was leaving before breakfast was being served, however this didn't bother me as in general I never eat it anyway but when I checked out there was a sausage barm... More
