Commanding the crossroads in a peaceful village, The Grove has all the requisites of a typical Devon pub – thatched roof, whitewashed exterior, beamed ceilings, bare stone walls, rustic furnishings, flagstone floors, winter log fires and even on occasions, Morris dancers. Just like many other properties in the village, it's listed. The kitchen takes full advantage of fresh produce from nearby farms and the coast to feature in dishes such as tagine of North Devon goat served with herbed couscous; fresh West Country mackerel fillets in real ale batter with chips and peas; or half a spit-roast chicken with red wine and rosemary sauce and chips. All wines, even fizz, are served by the glass, beers come from regional breweries and there's a collection of 65 single malts from around the world. Dogs are allowed in the bar. A beer and cider festival takes place in July.
