The Stables

Simple food served to perfection

The Stables is all about simple food served to perfection; succulent steaks, delicious pies – all home-cooked and wonderfully comforting. Set in the estate’s original stable block, the restaurant has an unstuffy, but decidedly country chic atmosphere. 

George Stubbs, the 18th century artist, was a regular visitor to these old stables. He didn’t come for beef, chicken or fish but the horses. Leaving his home in Edgeware, George would walk the leafy lanes of Hertfordshire until he arrived at The Grove. Here, inspired by the fine mares and stallions, he would spend hours at his easel.

Today, of course, the horses have been replaced by the golf carts and the horseshoe’s have given way to soft spikes. We like to think however, that some the Stubbs’ magic remains. Like George, our Chefs create one masterpiece after another.


Enjoy 2 delicious courses from the lunch time set menu at The Stables for only £20 or 3 courses for only £26.

    You'll like the views too, over the golf course or The Stables courtyard. With a rustic New England design, this feels entirely different from Colette's and The Glasshouse, giving you a wide choice of venues to meet and eat.

    Clare Tylcoat

    Claire has worked with The Grove Hotel for 12 years, and is a great asset to The Stables team as Restaurant Manager. Her career highlight has been flying over to Sri Lanka for the Tea Masters Gold training, which allowed Claire to experience the complete production and processing of our teas, including picking and tasting them (pictured). Besides this, Claire believes with a positive attitude and enthusiasm you can achieve anything, and is particularly passionate about The Grove because of how much they have invested in her progression along with our core values, and being a family-run business.

    Favourite thing about the Stables: Every corner is different. It is homely and comforting, child-friendly yet you can also host a business lunch. You also have brilliant views over the putting green and golf course.

    Claire’s current dish of the month: Breast of duck with braised cabbage.
