Had lunch at this pub today. After waiting 15-20 mins for a lunchtime snack to arrive (Goat's Cheese Crostini) I returned this as the toast was burnt. I requested this be redone. This arrived two minutes later and I looked underneath the 'new' toast only to discover it was burnt on the under side. It appeared this had gone back to the kitchen they had turned over the toast and sent it back out. It is not cheap to eat here. My colleagues and I will not be returning.

Great overall experience....room service is the best anywhere...don't miss it...the largely Polish-speaking staff is efficient, super polite and friendly. Nothing beats the grounds and their splendid beauty, especially if you are a golfer....second to none. Have the filet mignonette at The Stables restaurant. Rooms are Spartan but sufficient...all in all, we had a super stay at The Grove.

Went down to the Grove after being recommended by a friend. Food was amazing, staff were very friendly and helpful but the man I think the manager was shouting at staff in front of customers, being very rude while he was doing nothing to help. Did not seem to care that customers could hear. Overall the experience was good but could be improved if management showed a higher degree of professionalism xx

The Grove use to be one of my favourite pubs in Ealing
Had good food and great service
For the last few months has changed completely and the managers are arrogant and behaving not caring of the customers view
I ordered a starter King Scallops and chorizo
My friend ordered the salmon with a brioche
My starter was served and it looked like a joke
3 small scallops and two pieces of chorizo with a bit of pure
A joke
for almost £8.00
I complained to one of the staff. He was really polite and helpful. But it was the management site to decide what is wrong with my dish. Apparently that is how the serve it and that is that
No restaurant r a pub will never serve a dish with scallops that are not king scallops and with 2 pieces of chorizo
A joke
My friends brioche wasn't a brioche. It was just two pieces of sliced bread
and on top of that the scallops needed more cooking
I am complaining from the management and the kitchen
The staff are always polite

My opinion don't go there
It was good
Not any more
And the management doesn't care for the standards
