The Grove


The Grove has been around since circa 1877 and is a beautiful building hidden away in the residential streets of Balham.

Steeped in Victorian charm, The Grove boasts a decadent interior to reflect the period of the building so you can sink into leather chesterfield sofas and a contemporary take on classically rustic stylings. Fronting a traditonal gastropub atmosphere, The Grove hosts everyone from local punters to those looking for some lovely nosh and an ambient welcome. Hidden within, you'll find a treasure trove of custom concoctions from rums to tequilas and craft beer. Lounge to your hearts content with a tailored tipple or expert selection of wine. 

Tuck into a hearty Sunday Roast or something from their seasonal menu of traditional British gastro classics like Fish & Chips, Beef Burger or Sirloin Steak or explore our new Meat Free Menu.
