We love this restaurant, we have had lunches, evening meals inside the cosy restaurant and out on the terrace over looking the estuary in the summer , and popped in for a coffee and a catch up with friends . Always welcoming and friendly . The food is outstanding , fresh and lots of healthy choices . Our favourite is the soups , outstanding!

The Grove is my go to spot on a sunny day for breakfast with their amazing Estuary view but their roast dinner took it to the next level yesterday.

Super friendly staff and the chief even gave me a master class on cooking the perfect roasted parsnip.

Will now be a winter as well as a summer favourite. We will be back, thank you x

Fabulous to hear and many thanks. It’s also wonderful to read that not only did you enjoy your roast so much and that you were looked after so well by the team but that you also had some culinary tips too! Happy Eating and successful parsnip cooking too - LOL!

Hope to see you again very soon.

It was my first time eating in this restaurant, a pre-christmas night out with friends. Everything served had a twist and tasted great! Staff were very attentive and apologetic over a delay into serving the mains. The wine was good too. The restaurant has a very nice decor. The price was right for the quality of food. We will come back.

Been coming here for several years now and will drive out a few miles if the breakfast is worth it - and it is! Some lovely views out to the Thames and a fab deck in the summertime. Highly recommend as not only is the food great, the service and staff are too.
