My sisters and my mum took me here for my birthday and what can I was spectacular. We went for a buffet lunch and the variety was awesome. We took a walk around the grounds which were really beautiful before chilling in the lounge area. Price point was appropriate for such opulent dinning. Parking was no problem and the vibe was really chilled no stuffy business.

We provided the sound system for our friend's memorial service in the Potting Shed yesterday. Every team member we met went out of their way to help us... from the moment we arrived until we left. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely sincere people. The best ever...thank you so much. The food was excellent too. Peter

The Legendary Glasshouse at the Grove, what a great place to take your partner, friends or even have an office lunch, dinner or afternoon tea. The food is a buffet yes but not what many associate with buffets, this is a high end buffet with great selection of food from around the world cooked to perfection. And as good as the food is the service is even better, when we sat down waiting staff called Diane came over and immediately introduced themselves and that they would take care of us. This is exactly what they did, and when drinks were delivered late Diane got more upset for us. Diane was absolutely on as were all the other staff who provide the absolute best customer service, polite and genuine conversations. This a definate recommendation for those that are foodies and love a great experience. Various live counters included, Italian pizza and pasta, great and tasty roasts with sirloin and desserts to die for with a fondue chocolate fountain to top it off. The bathrooms are immaculate and self contained with all the amenities you could need. The views and drive through grounds of the Grove were beautiful and picturesque. Put The Grove on your list of must visit dining, you will not be disappointed.

It is its own destination. Place is just stunning. The gardens are a delight, the staff are super friendly and helpful. It's sumptuous, quirky, they had outdoor cinema when I went. What more could you ask. The lounges are just fabulous, each one more gorgeous than the last-I didn't want to leave!!!!

Had a wonderful evening at The Grove. We arrived early to take some photos, splendid grounds with well maintained gardens, shrubbery, water features, etc. Food was delicious as usual and the array is well thought of and in abundance, a tad salty for me. Desserts were beautiful and tasty. Angel served our table and she was very polite, courteous and attentive. Thank you.
