The Grove is such a beautiful venue and every time we go we have a lovely time. Staff are delightful and the food is impeccable. Drinks are great and I really enjoyed my Hendricks & Fever Tree tonic's this evening. The grounds are so beautiful to walk around and the Stables bar is a great place to grab a few drinks and have some bar food with a great atmosphere. We are yet to try the spa but that is next on our list to try as it looks fantastic.

For over 20 years plus The Grove (Glass House) still has its wow factor. Spotlessly clean, stunning decor throughout, excellent service and the food was out of this world. In my opinion, worth every penny. A buzzing atmosphere of groups young and old all enjoying themselves. Time well spent.

Excellent service and food, we could not fault it. The only gripe is a minimum of £50 for a cheap bottle of prosecco that cost no more than £15. But that did not spoil the evening. I would recommend the glass house restaurant. You will enjoy the experience. We visited again last night and we had the same excellent service.

Been here for dinner and drinks in the glass house before. Which was very good. Came for a wedding this time, there's plenty of parking, it's well sign posted too. The gardens were beautiful for a wedding ceremony and the rooms afterwards were fabulous too. Later, walked around the grounds, very impressed, being a gardener myself once. Very tidy and beautiful lighting all around the trees. I couldn't fault the Grove at all.

We stayed in the Grove for a weekend and had amazing time, everything was top staff and service, room and grounds of hotel. Food was amazing, spa treatments were excellent. The therapists were very nice, professional and very good at their job. Highly recommended using the spa facilities. Well done to everyone who made our weekend memorable and thank you, we're looking forward to come back one day ☺️☺️
