The Grosvenor Arms is newly refurbished, it is traditional yet stylish, relaxed yet ‘buzzy’, and open all day. You are always welcome, for a drink in the bar, a cup of coffee in the conservatory, or a pizza from the wood oven.

Drop in at any time to eat at our bar, enjoy brunch, or for tea and cake in the conservatory. We serve great coffee and specialist loose leaf teas. Our relaxed restaurant serves the finest ingredients, simply, but whenever possible, seasonal, local, wild and organic. Our wood oven produces the best thin crust pizzas, and the most delicious slow cooked shoulder of pork...
