It's open again, a Rampubco joint, it would seem.

You can see Wembley from here, incidentally. Or so the builder said, when he came down from his scaffolding and roof ladder.

This pub is justly billed here as closed, but as a result of fire damage.

It's shrouded in scaffolding, and work is well under way. As to whether it will re-open as a pub, we'll have to wait and see

I wonder what ever became of The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown?

"The natives used to say, that if a man's heart was pure, then the poison wouldn't harm him. Poor old Hargreaves died almost immediately, in horrible agony..."

So, with Rawlinson's words ringing in my ears, I lifted the opaque, vitriol-reeking pint of Bombardier to my lips. And here I am today.

I suggested to the bar lady that the beer was off. She said that it was a new barrel. I invited her to taste it. She said that she had no idea how real ale was supposed to taste.

What does it take, to remember "not like a mixture of vinegar and bad eggs"?

Here's a note to visitors from kinder, less brutal lands. No, we do not drink beer that tastes like demon's p i s s.

Send it back like we do.

Popped into this pub on world cup match night 7:30pm and surprised to see only 3 drinkers in watching the screens Pint of Youngs served in Traditional Glass tankard - Impressed

But badly poured by inexperience staff, a quarter of the pint was head, when asked to top up, I was wrongly informed that the pint mark was to the top of the dimples !!?, asked to see the manager, who stated the same but reluctantly topped up to the full pint, left the Grove after that pint,I guess drinkers vote with their feet
walked down to "The Hermits Cave" busy pub (100+drinkers)cheaper beer, more variety & served correctly by professional staff

Ah the Grove, what a pity. Soulless, but with nice bar staff. Drinks are alright. Place always empty.

Bring back its previous studey incarnation with the great pizza oven, the BRB. They were lovely (and there's no where else in SE5 that does them that I know). It was the only pub in SE5 with a consistently good atmos which a civilised human would want to go to for a fun feeling.
