“Average Place, Average Menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

There's nothing really wrong with the Grove, but there's not a great deal to write home about either. Generally it is used for it's cocktail menu/drinks pre and post dinner as it has a large bar rather than an eatery. There is certainly a separate dining area so you are not overrun or overpowered by the noise or busyness of the bar, and the food is fine, just average - that's all I can say really....

“Good lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Thought the food was good. We ate outside in the sunshine at lunch time and had a very pleasant experience. Bar can be a bit noisy at night but it is a good lively place to meet people.

“Great Veggie Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

All too often the vegetarian option is a badly prepared afterthought. The Grove shows how it should be done. My vegetarian dish was as well presented and delicious as my partner 's fish dish. Combine this with attentive service and reasonable prices, I can see us coming back

“Wrong meal but still nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

I was given the wrong food but mistakes happen, its how they deal with mistakes that’s important and they were fab. Very apologetic and my correct meal was back in a jiffy. Impressed with the chaps that run it.

“Good on the whole”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

Have eaten here a few times and has usually been very good although ate here a couple of months ago for lunch and made the wrong choice in having fish and chips as the batter was very thick and tasted soggy. Pleasant staff and a good menu so despite the fish batter I will return!
