We were touring the area and after using Trip Advisor opted to dine here because of its good reviews. On arrival the staff made us very welcome and provided some good advice on local attractions. They have a well balanced menu catering for all tastes although they do specialise in steaks cooked on you table on lava stones. This was... More

My son has always said that the steaks at the Grove are his favourite, so for a belated mothers day present he treated myself and my husband to an evening meal. My husband always chooses a fish dish but I chose the 24 ounce t bone and my son chose the 8 ounce fillet. The steaks were delivered to the... More

Visited 3rd January 2015 for a birthday treat. The first time I have visited. It was recommended to us by another member of our party. A charming room with a relaxed atmosphere. The food was cooked to a very high standard. I had a steak which came on a plate with a "hot rock". Basically this is a rectangular "rock"... More

Visited with family and enjoyed a hot rock steak. Excellent meat, very tender and the "cook it yourself at the table" was a great experience. Lots of well cooked vegetables and sides. My son had a sweet - it was ENORMOUS. If you are going to have two courses and you have a sweet tooth I'd recommend a main course... More

What a great restaurant with good old fashioned customer service at the heart of everything they do here. Upon arrival the restaurant was full which was a good sign. We had booked here on the strength of the Trip advisor reviews and was not disappointed. There is not a great deal more I can add that has not already been... More

A place to go if you want a different eating experience Try a "hot rock" steak, You are served a raw steak and you cook it your self at the table. A great variety of meats to choose from included some you have never thought of, like crocodile and kangaroo Not cheap and not for small children with the hot... More

We visited the Grove for the first time on a Friday night, pre booked table. We were immediately impressed by the warm welcome from the landlord and barman. The waitress continued the relaxed and effecient welcome as we were shown to our table and then the menu clearly and comprehensively explained as we were first timers. We went for the... More
