2015 Judges’ Comments

The Grovedale Hotel has long been a popular, busy, and vibrant pub providing classic pub meals, more fancy dishes and a range of specials.  In 2015 the Tasting Plate was well presented and fresh, the spiced friend calamari generous and tasty, the calamari soft to the bite and with good flavour, and the braised lamb shanks from the daily specials menu was hearty, beautifully cooked and full of flavour, and the pan seared salmon hit the mark, well seasoned and well cooked. The most popular desert was the berry marshmallow, raspberry and jager brulee, while the strawberry sorbet was an eclectic mix of flavours.  The hotel offered a good selection drinks and customer service staff were friendly and efficient.
