Is now a BREWHOUSE AND KITCHEN which brews a substantial range of beers on the premises and does food as well.

Gangsters, druggies, scum, etc., etc. Seems just the pub for Pond Life 'Classic Punk Riding on a New Wave' Well, we all like a bit of church music, don't we?
So, here is your chance to get groovy down at the Grove Tavern with some splendidly innocent and beautiful music by Pond Life at the Grove Tavern on Saturday, 7th February 2015, from 9 p.m.. And then there's a rave up.

Interesting reviews, as this place isn't too bad. Yep, Boscombe and Southbourne have some true scum, but there's no real evidence that there are more in here than anywhere else. At least this place is individual, plays its own music, isn't a chain slave, serves ESTRELLA and has great bar staff!! This place is good and is on the high street and right by the sea- come on! Those who are saying avoid are obviously frightened of their own shadows. This gets a cracking 6 from me- and that is really really unusual. We need more of these places in britain.

"You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."

An absolute cesspit that self-respecting Southbourne locals avoid. Imagine the really bad pubs in Boscombe, but transplanted into Southbourne. That's it. Having the Grove Tavern around makes sleepy Southbourne far more dangerous and criminogenic.

The Grove Tavern is frequented by old lags, wannabe gangsters, Methadone users, foulmouthed �ber-drunks, and the occasional misguided foreign tourists. If you value your safety at all, stay away.

This place has undergone a marked improvement since my last visit. The Ringwood 49er - which was 'only' �2.80 a pint compared with �3.05 for a pint of Ringwood Best in The Royalty - and Wells Bombardier were well kept. The staff were friendly and hard working and most of the more menacing people who used to drink in here seem to have moved on.
