I have been to this establishment several times and have enjoyed every mouthful. I use to have the chicken salsa flatbread which is so creamy and light on the stomach. However, I recently discovered their spicy bean tower which is so tasty I would recommend it to anyone. A must too are their chips with their homemade dips. My mouth is watering now.

The staff are polite and attentive and do not seem to rush you through your courses.

Steak Night

Eight of us went to The Grove for one of their themed nights. This time it was Steak Night on the 4th July with a hint of USA .
We all had a really great night, food was fab and a lovely atmosphere. Some of us had the juicy streaks whilst others went off the normal menu.
Everyone at The Grove is so friendly and welcoming.
Just a shame the weather wasn't obliging otherwise we would have dined on their wonderful terrace overlooking the estuary. One of the nicest views around.

We arrived to eat at 6.30pm on a Saturday evening. Normally they are open all day but had had to close until 7pm because of shortage of staff. On seeing us outside they came out and said they could serve us from 6.50pm and that we could wait inside until then. We were 4 adults and 2 children. We were all very impressed by the flavour of our food, freshness and quality. The service was very friendly and the view from the terrace where we ate was stunning. Not the cheapest place to eat but definitely value for money for a memorable evening.

Have used The Grove a couple of times for breakfast with friends - and it never fails to disappoint!
Not only do they serve a great breakfast, the staff are friendly, the place is very unassuming and there is a good view over the water (if you get a table outside).
They also don't try to rush you - so you can enjoy your meal at your own pace!
Recommend.
