We had a lovely weekend break. The staff at the Grove Arms were absolutely great. Very helpful and friendly. A place where well behaved dogs are welcomed not just tolerated! Clean warm rooms. Great breakfast too.

Dear Saffdev, Thank you for your review and noting it is a decent village establishment. It is a shame you visited on a quiet day as those are few and far between as there is usually locals frequenting the bar and diners alike but hope you join us again soon! Kind regards Nina
