A freehouse with a huge range of beers on cask, keg and bottles. Two rooms with a bar serving both the tap room and the main room. The tap and cask menu are displayed on blackboards and includes both local Yorkshire ales and brews from other counties and countries, even from Italy. They do the draught beers in thirds. The bottled menu had quite a few beers from Norwegian breweries like Haandbryggeriet and Nøgne Ø. The pub is, in fact, a steady-going beer festival. Cozy atmosphere and friendly, professional service (visited as our second pub during a crawl in Huddersfield 09.07.2014).

Visited here Saturday 23rd April 2011 which I think was my second visit here, we’d been the year before Good start as the young lad behind the bar lets us bring our bikes right through the pub and out into the back garden to save having to faff about locking them up. Incredible range of beers, in fact I was gobsmacked at the choice, the bottled beer list was damn healthy too. Very friendly and helpful staff, great choice of beers with Mikkeller, De Molen, Gadds, Brewdog, Thornbridge etc on tap. I could have this as my local any day. Great place. We visited here again on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th February 2014. This really is a truly fantastic place, there can be few places anywhere that can match this in the UK, it just gets better and better for beer choice, on both nights we chatted with the clientele. The staff are very knowledgeable and with younger staff involved this place is really looking secure for the future. I cannot praise it enough, it was busy but not uncomfortable, I only wish this was my local.

Just out of the town centre ring to the west of the commercial centre, and close to the Apna Venue where the CAMRA Huddersfield beer festival has been held. This has to be the number one destination of anyone visiting Huddersfield for real ale - there’s about 30 rotating options in cask and keg form. The pub is rustic and a little bohemian in style, but it’s comfortable enough and matters little given there’s hardly any better selections in the country.

An incredible pub. Enormous selection of beer on cask, keg and in bottles. What’s more it’s beer from a lot of the very best breweries. Knowledgable staff, some very unusual bar snacks and quite honestly it’s difficult to drag yourself out of this place.

A fairly unassuming exterior belies what is hidden within! By rights a selection of beer like this should only exist in a capital city. However, here is proof that if you build it, then they shall come. After taking everything in, I had a look through the bottles list, with a view to taking some home. I asked the barman if everything on the list was currently in stock. "Give me five minutes to check, and I’ll let you know", he said. Five minutes later and the answer was, "Yep, every one’s in stock". That pretty much sums the place up. Dedicated!

Unfortunately, due to a limited train schedule I didn’t get to spend as long in here as I hoped to. The ambiance is definitely unique, friendly. I drank at a table next to a wall that was covered in Freud-esque nude paintings. The service is solid, professional. The selection seemed to be a bit more limited on my visit than some of the other reviews indicate. Not all the casks were firing. What was available was quality, plenty of local micros available. The keg selection’s pretty wide-ranging, and included some random stuff from Haand. I didn’t check out the bottle list, but probably should have! No food available. The prices are truly fantastic considering what’s on offer. This place is much cheaper than the craft bars in London. Overall, a place that’s definitely worth the journey. I’d love to come back as I don’t feel like I got the full Grove experience on my rushed visit.

Amazing, like the bizarre offspring of the Wildeman and the Rovers Return. For a non obvious location the selection is unbelievably superb. Staff seemed good, customers friendly. Didn’t want to leave.

WAUW what a great place :-) for sure a must visit pub for me whenever I am in Huddersfield, in fact a reason to go to Huddersfield :-).. Amazing tap liste, beers in great condition, from micros all over. Superb bottle selection as well. The pub has 2 rooms with the bar area in the middle, in the back a smaller beergarden as well. Great atmosphere, easy to meet other beerpeople from all over the world here, nice deco, for sure a place to re-visit.. Go there and enjoy :-)

Definitely the finest pub in England. Everything during my visit was spot on conditioning wise, selection was astronomical, quality of service was drilled, efficient and attentive. I don’t remember much in terms of food but Brian let me order some food from a nearby takeaway and I was able to consume it with my Magic Rock Human Cannonball so I am very grateful for that. The best pint of Human Cannonball I’ve ever had was here. Yes, this is the equivalent to the hot bars in Rome for cellaring standards and dispense standards. Really fantastic. Prices were almost too good to believe. The London pubs are much more expensive than The Grove. I had one of my best ever drinking nights here. I will definitely be back. Also of note Bitches Brewing is Grove Brew Brian’s project so expect to see a lot of his beer here.

BeerViking  (120) Brentford, England | May 20, 2012
What a stunning place! I reckon I counted 18 handpumps plus another 15 keg taps. A few are regulars, another half a dozen handpumps are regular to that brewery, though not to a specific beer, and the rest are guests. Friendly service and superb value too - there’s not much cask beer above £3 a pint, and you can get thirds as easily as halves. Three-third tasting flights are available for keg beers.

Located just outside the town centre, approximately about a 10 minute walk from the train station. The Grove is fairly unassuming from the outside. Inside it is a clean, contemporary 2-room pub. The beer selection is unbelievable! They have 18 hand-pulls from well-chosen breweries, such as Thornbridge, Mallinsons, Gadds, Buxton etc. 8 Key-kegs including Nøgne Ø, De Molen, BrewDog and Mikkeller and 5 Keg of mostly German beers. Also polypins of cider. They have a brilliant bottle list with an extensive world-wide selection. We opted for some BrewDog Bashah Reserve and AB:04. Good prices and I like the fact that all draft beer is available in third measures. Interesting bar snacks, which include a wide range of jerky and insects. Easily one of the best bars in the UK and probably one of the best I’ve ever been to.
