This is a typical Holts roadhouse, but smaller than many. There's a small lounge to the right and a much bigger taproom to the left. The taproom was very busy at 15:30 on a Friday afternoon. There are several TV screens, all showing racing and a pool table and a dartboard. The friendly landlady served me my pint of Holts Bitter which was only £2.71. It's a pleasant enough place, another workingman's local.

My main lunchtime watering hole for nearly 40 years. In the old days I would go alone because no one would drink Holts ales (too much taste!). Over the years I gradually educated everyone (at work) and it became the place for all the leaving "do's" when the factory closed down.

A memory of the old landlady Madge. Two young lads came in and ordered lager. One of them took it back saying it tasted funny. Madge glared at him and said "Of course it tastes funny - its lager!"

The Grove Inn is a proper old pub that is set on a corner.
Once inside there were a few rooms and i had a drink in the bar which was a nice room to have a drink in,the lounge also looked quite nice.
This pub is a Joseph Holt tied house and there were two real ales on the bar i had a drink of Holts bitter and this was a really nice drink the other beer was Holts mild.
I quite liked this pub and was very content having a drink in here.
