Stayed at the Groes Inn for just one night and also dined at the restaurant. Overall we found both the accommodation and food very average. The best bits were the views from our room and breakfast. The room (7) had good views, but had too much furniture in it, making walking from one side of the bed to the bathroom a hurdle race. Room was clean. Upon arrival, there was no one present at reception so we had to find someone in the pub to check us in. Not a good first impression.
Dinner was average, my fish pie was not freshly made and had a tasteless sauce. The crumble in my apple and plum crumble were crumbled biscuits, rather than a traditionally made crumble. I found this in stark contrast with the dining experience described on the Groes Inn’s website. The restaurant enjoys a number of awards for its food, the website describes how local fresh local produce is sourced, yet we were left very disappointed and doubtful of the claims made. Staff was somewhat forgetful. Breakfast was good, although service somewhat slow. All in all, the Groes Inn was overpriced for what it was and we will not be returning.
