About
The Grove is a traditional pub with a large beer garden located on the seafront in Exmouth. We serve seasonal British food and amazing Sunday roasts. Home to one of the best views in Exmouth, our balcony is the place to be in summer! We welcome all comers to the Grove, whether they use two legs or four. We host regular weekly events such as a quiz on Sunday nights and playgroups at Monday lunch not to mention our 'clocking off' every Friday evening at 6pm. On top of that we host big events and always have something going on. Check out our website for more details or follow us on twitter, facebook or instagram to keep up to date on all that is happening at the Grove! We look forward to having
