Guest Review (6 May 2005)

The "Grove" is one the last real pubs left. No dollar drinks nights, no que to get in, no cover charge and no dress code, just a bunch of mates who enjoy sports and a flutter while drinking a coldie. Great Cold beer, good pub grub , pool tables and a great bunch of mates. The publicans "Hicksey" and "Jo" are legends and there is no greater place to hold your sporting clubs functions. Where else would you want to be ??!!

When I walk in I feel like Norm Peterson in "Cheers" The Shirts off Pub for the pants off Club ! The place where everyone knows your name!

Pop your head in, shudder (think:there but for the grace of God go I), step backward being carefull not to make eye contact and move on. The name of the dump should be a give-away.

S from South is spot on with the crusty locals comment. Had 1 great night here and 6 pretty ordinary nights. Wouldn't go out of my way to drop in again, but I wouldn't avoid it either.
