Safety Statement

At The Grove  over our period of closure we have used this time to get ready for reopening, introducing measures to keep both our team and our customers safe. Our team has been trained and our premises deep cleaned, processes put in place all to ensure your safety whilst maintaining the Grove’s atmosphere, soul and spirit!

Attached is a summary of some of the changes we have made on site to our already high quality, clean and safe pub.

We appreciate you may be anxious to return to our site, however please be patient with us and let us know if you feel we can improve in any way – the team are here to help!

Thank you for supporting our local, our team and our beautiful pub – we cannot wait to greet you.

Nina and Team Grove.
