We had never been before and will go again! We were greeted by Annie, she was friendly, funny, and very welcoming. We ordered the haddock and steak, they were delicious and had great portion sizes. Jess our server was very friendly, warm, and helpful. The pub has a fun atmosphere and lovely decor. Thanks, Jess and Annie for a great first impression. We can't wait to come back.


Had the fish and chips and a few drinks yesterday when I came in to the Grove. The staff was funny and welcoming and help me with anything I needed the whole team was amazing from chef to kitchen porter and bar staff a lovely team and also love my fish it was hot and tasty and my drink was nice and in nice glasses will be back for another meal. Thank you for a good experience.
