“Nice wine bar/restaurant”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I have visited The Grove before but only for a drink. On this occasion, we visited and had lunch too. It was a nice experience.

We had nachos as a shared starters and they were possibly the best nachos I have had. Very tasty, very filling and a good sized portion! In fact, we needn't have ordered the main course as we were quite full!

For main I had a club sandwich....and it was quite a size! With chips and salad too. Very nice indeed. More than enough even without a starter! No need for dinner that night!

To cap the lunch off, The Grove sells a very nice pint of Tetley's bitter too!

“Are we back to the 70's?”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

When we were young steak bars were all the rage (Berni Inns etc) and this latest reincarnation of the Grove seems to have introduced that type of menu. A fellow diner even started with a prawn cocktail. I started with grilled mushrooms which were excellent, followed with a 12oz rump steak with pepper sauce and finished with sticky toffee pudding and thoroughly enjoyed the lot.
The waitresses seemed to be fairly new to the job but service was good.

“Ilkley's Glitterati!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We only went for drinks as we were meeting friends and going on but it does have a great atmosphere all the same. Make sure you wear a statement 'piece' as it is frequented by the glitterati of Ilkley. We have eaten here in the past but unable to rate the food this time but the wine was good and well served although a little pricey for what it was.

“Amazed”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Simply and utterly amazed that this place would close on a beautiful summer evening. The staff sat outside themselves on the patio after it had closed enjoying a drink and entertaining their friends! They were turning people away as they did so. Good for the restaurant opposite who benefited from this........ The last time we visited we sat outside for a good 20 minutes without being approached and when my husband went inside to order a drink it took a further 15 minutes for it to arrive. Needs a shake up!!!!!!!
