Fantastic gastro pub with friendly and accommodating staff.
Menu is varied and has something for everyone, whether its meat, fish or vegetarian and food portions more than ample. The wine list is well stocked too while beer and bitter is also available in draft too.
Will recommend the rib eye steak and banofee pie although the menu is updated constantly.
Great atmosphere and ambiance with an outside enclosed area too.
I had a wonderful little chicken-liver salad here: served warm, with chorizo and cherry tomatoes, in a wonderfully fiery liquor, it was a perfect light dish for a cold winter night.
Unfortunately the cheese platter which followed was not so great: the cheeses themselves were fairly mediocre, and they were served far too cold so that what little flavour they had could not escape. The shop-bought crackers and mango chutney they were served with were perfectly adequate but, like the cheese, nothing to write home about.
Friendly, attentive service and reasonable prices. The decor, with its peculiar lemon-and-lime paintings and hippy carved-sun mirrors, has a slight feel of 80s vegetarian café bohemia. Pleasant enough, if a bit odd, and the tightly regimented rows of wooden tables and chairs are slightly at odds with the whacky wall-ornamentation.
The Grove seems to be listening to the comments made on QYPE. They have refreshed their look. Almost overnight they have changed wooden floor and made it lighter creating wonderful and cosy very continental feeling. Bare wood tables and floor, open plan kitchen, nice bar, large airy dining room and fair share of organic dishes on their ever changing menus makes this place so natural yet unpretentious.
I am looking forward to watching World Cup on their large screen in their function room this summer.
The Grove is a reasonable local Bozer which retains some of it's original Victorian features. However it desperately needs a make over, the "varied shades of green" decor appears very dated. Also I have never thought the food particularly good and some of the dishes are as expensive as Chez Kristof next door! Finally it's very much an eating pub, they could do with a bit more bar space and some sofas to relax on.

The food is really nice, wholesome and good value and they have a very good wine list.
But I think the decor is a little bit passe now and it would be nice to have a little refreshing of it.
Lovely gastropub to have next door though!
The Grove is a great little restaurant bar serving modern European grub. A very continental feeling going on with the bare wood tables and floor, open kitchen, bar and large airy dining room. The food is the most consistant I have experienced in a while and so I keep going back. If I had to choose between Chez Kristoff on the opposite corner and The Grove (money no object) I honestly would plump for The Grove because of the easy vibe the do so well.
The Grove, established in 1996 in the present form, is London authentic, award-winning, Modern Mediterranean Restaurant - a perfect oasis for business or pleasure with a relaxed atmosphere - a fusion of Mediterranean flavours using organic ingredients wherever possible, prepared by real culinary artists who have the freedom to create menus twice daily.
A bright, welcoming gastropub with lots of tables and an open kitchen at the far end ought to be a delight, but my mushroom stroganoff was so chewy that I thought they’d used (not very tasty) beef and the bread and olive oil arrived after the main course, which isn’t the point. Pannacotta with an inoffensive fruit sauce was fine as was the apricot crumble but we left feeling vaguely displeased. It was £39 for two but as we only drank one glass of beer and one of cider between us, it seemed to be a lot. ,
This cocktail bar is very special.
You know the way it usually goes - there’s happy hour, 2 for 1 beers, half price cocktails.. and for that you get? You don’t get the same cocktail you bought the night before. No, you get some variation of it with what seems to be endless cocktails with barely a drunken buzz.
Well not this place! I have honestly never seen so much love go into cocktail making! These guys really put in the effort - happy hour or not. The downside to this is that it can take a while to get your drink, especially if you’ve ordered 7 mojito’s at once!
And not only that - the bar staff are among the friendliest I’ve met in London, and they pub is actually quite cool. :)
This is quite a nice pub on Hammersmith Grove. Hammersmith Grove is the pretty street that links up Shepherd’s Bush with Hammersmith and is a keen locale for celeb houses, as well as a fancy restaurant (Chez Kristof) and a period costume hire shop.
The Grove is a pleasant pub towards the Hammersmith end of the road. Done out mostly with wood furnishings. It does gastro pub food, but I’ve only ever been there for drinks, not food - but it looks alright if a little bit more expensive than what you’d usually pay in a pub.
There’s quite a big wine list but one of the nicest features of The grove is the outdoor seating. Enclosed by small hedges it’s a lovely place to have a drink in the summer.
