Throughout it all though, the pub has retained the sense of humour that is so evident throughout, even serving cream teas out to customers sat on tables in the river garden during the floods! There is a wonderful, personal vibe throughout the Grove Ferry, with humourous messages on chalkboards everywhere.
Steve was the only one of us who had room for pudding, and after perusing the menu for a while, he asked the waitress for what was basically an amalamation of two of the waffle desserts available. She was more than helpful, and made sure that he got exactly what he wanted; a hot toasted waffle with vanilla and raspberry icecream, strawberry crushed biscuit and masses of chocolate sauce and mixed berries.
I wish I could put my finger on what makes this pub so special. The people are friendly and funny, the inside is warm and comforting, the outside is breathtakingly beautiful. They keep animals and grow their own herbs and vegetables in the garden. They have a forager on the staff for Sunday lunches. They have a lot of pride in their pub.
