“Disappointing Evening Meal”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Sorry Grove Hotel, but it still appears to be very hit and miss in your main bar restaurant! When it's good, it's good, but when it's bad, it's awful and as a customer that's not fair. The food seemed tired and stale and tasteless and at the prices charged, it's really not on!

The following evening we all went to a fantastic little pub in Solva called The Ship, half way down the main street in lower Solva, and for a lot less cost, had a superb meal from start to finish, beautifully cooked and presented. Brilliant staff in The Ship Solva, so no guesses as to where we will eat out in the future!

“Extra attention”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We were given such courteous treatment from the moment we walked in the door. Noel fixed my computer that had somehow lost its wifi capabilities. Coffee was excellent. Rooms are small but adequate. The breakfast was cooked to perfection, ordered off a menu. Restaurant food was delicious. Hated to leave.

“disappointing dinner”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

staff were nice but I'm afraid the food was terrible - very overcooked fish and chips that had obviously been sitting around for ages - it was pretty quiet in the restaurant so not really any excuse for poor standard. The whole place felt rather sad - needs a bit of a boost from management.

“Stylish conservatory”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Best choice in St.David's for a quick lunch. Crab cakes with salad were good, and the smoked salmon sandwich with salad and chips were welcome on a cool day. The conservatory setting was excellent, light, and contemporary.
