Eating at The Grosvenor Arms never disappoints. Good range and choice of dishes. Reasonable selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Relaxed atmosphere (it is still a pub!) and helpful staff. Good selection of ales and spirits.

Visited here whilst staying with family, good selection on the menu with some great local ales on tap. Went for 3 courses, every dish hit the spot. The fish and chips were particularly delicious, and the shoulder of lamb gave me food envy. They also...More
