Family Dinner / Lunch

We have used The Grove for a number of years, John is always very accommodating especially if you have dietary requirements, the desserts are AMAZING, so leave room for them ( or ask to take away), Sunday lunch is good too - BOOK EARLY

Booked a table last minute, they managed to squeeze us in. They were fully booked. Great menu, plenty of choice. The main reason to visit is to have a steak/grill. These items are cooked at your table to your liking by yourself on a black rock. The soup I had chosen for my starter was leek and potato and was... More

My father was 80 last September and I wanted to take him somewhere special for a meal with the family. It was easy to book a table and even ordered a birthday cake for him. Most of us had steak, salad & chips and we could cook the steak on a granite slab right in front of us. It was... More

Went out for a midweek meal with the wife, we both had steak ribeye for me and a sirloin for my wife. Both cooked at the table on a black rock which is a novel idea. The cut of meat was very good although you will need to season your steak as you cook it (not the worst thing ever),... More

My wife and I made a visit to the Grove and had the best steak we have ever tasted. It is quite a traditional place and while the restaurant decor is traditional and not to our own taste, the food and service was fantastic. We went for the steak cooked on volcanic rock and I can honestly say it was... More

Luckily for my family, The Grove has decided to open on a Monday and we managed to get in at very short notice. Our first visit and certainly not our last. Great food and hosts.
