Our second stay at the Grove and our second in the Rebecca suite. We had stayed here before in July of last year and wanted to comeback, especially for the opportunity to enjoy roaring fires after walking and site seeing on colder days. The return trip was every bit as nice as the first. The team are as friendly as... More

Ok so the choice of hotels & bar in the UKs smallest city isn't huge-but!-the Grove works really hard at being the best. Warm comfy room, restaurant staff that went above & beyond-we had a cracking evening meal as well as a superb breakfast-everything was clean & well presented. And fabulous Glamorgan sausages!

The Grove was a chance stop as we left St David's and one which we are glad we made. Whilst there's not masses of choice of food, there is something for everyone. Fish n chips and chicken and mushroom pie were both piping hot - tasty and served quickly. Those working there had given us a warm welcome and our... More

We popped in here for lunch, on a very miserable day? Nice bright interior. We had a lovely welcome from the young lady behind the bar! It was quiet but that suited us as some of us were recovering from bad colds? The back ground music was subtle and appropriate. (so often not the case in pubs and restaurants these... More

Four of us went to eat here on a cold December evening. The Restaurant was warm and quiet, but we like it that way. The menu was varied and the service was excellent and accommodating. The Beef Bourgignon Pie with Horseradish mash and roast vegetables was strikingly tasty and the kind waitress brought an excellent cheese platter, which wasn't on... More

DO NOT GO HERE. It seems nice, with stylish furniture, good atmosphere. Upon entering with my wife and two friends, I was hoping to impress, I thought "This will do it". HOW WRONG I WAS. It was the May Bank Holiday Monday (31st) at 3:10pm. There was a businessman in the restaurant, a married couple in armchairs and a family... More

Popped in to check if the menu was any good as had visited before, found it compared to other establishments nearby very pricey for what you get, looking at what was coming out of the kitchen

In a marked contrast to our previous experience at the Grove there seems to be something amiss. The food was fine - innovative and tasty but the establishment has lost some of its former gentility. One doesn't expect to be seated between an overbearing supervisor talking at volume with his subordinate nor a table which is tacky to the touch.... More
