“A wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This is a lovely bistro just on the outskirts of Helston. The food which is prepared and cooked by the owner Carl is excellent. The decor is modern and there is a lounge where you can have pre dinner drinks or private dining. The gardens are lovely and when the weather is good you can sit on the terrace and enjoy your meal. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Very good value for money. Try the belly pork it is delicious.

“fantastic meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

we ate at the restaurant sat night for a 70th birthday bash for 17 people, the meals were cooked very well, with a good choice on the menu to choose from, very nice not to feel rushed and the profiteroles were to die for!

“Simply wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Hosts Carl and Rachel Grove serve up wonderful food. Three courses for £28.95, or two for £22.95
Tonight I had three: starter was tempura of prawns, with a wicked sweet chilli dip that packed a lovely kick. I followed up with exquisite belly pork: the crackling was perfect, with a crunch but also a melt, and the accompanying veg were all to perfection. For dessert I tried the ginger pudding (and I twisted the waitresses arm to let me try to lemon curd ice cream on its side rather than the usual vanilla). Delicious.
My wife started with Parma ham and baked cheese (mildly disappointing) and followed up with chicken (delicious). Also at our table: beef Wellington (huge and perfect), flamed strawberries (amazing), and the pavlova (very good, and again a large portion).
Ambience was pleasant. Service from staff was very good.
Our first time at the Grove, after hearing so much about it from friends, and it definitely will not be our last.

We spent our 10th Wedding Anniversary Lunch at The Grove and thoroughly enjoyed it, i had two sea food dishes, both fantastic and my wife equally enjoyed her courses selected from the specials board.
