We had the most perfect post lock down dinner date at The Grove.
It was a rainy night outside, but inside The Grove the atmosphere was welcoming, stylish and comfortable.
The staff are professional, unpretentious and knowledgeable. Each exciting course (of the 4 course degustation menu) was presented with flair and tasted as wonderful as it looked.
Combinations of flavours were unexpected but worked well together.
For example, dinner was rounded off with a warm limoncello, ginger beer and lime shot served with a melt in the mouth marshmallow.
I was intrigued to see they offer an Absinthe Experience, which I hope to try one day.
Thank you all for a most memorable and enchanting evening.

We really enjoyed the occasion however the Beef and the Yorkshire pudding were not very hot compared to the other items.

We went to The Grove for a birthday celebration for my partner and were treated amazingly! The staff were absolutely professional and helped us to have the most perfect night. The food was delicious- we couldn't pick out our favorite course as each one was better than the last (in the best way possible.) To top it off, my partner received a birthday treat with a cute little candle and a card from the restaurant. Thank you to The Grove for making our night extra special, we very much appreciated everything.
