The Grove is a heritage listed building of historical significance located south of Narberth, Pembrokeshire. It was built by Daniel Poyer in about 1680 shortly after he inherited the property from his father. The house remained in the Poyer family for the next two centuries. Today the Grove is a hotel and restaurant. It caters for special events particularly weddings.
Daniel Poyer a local gentleman built the Grove in the 1680s. He inherited the property from his father Henry Poyer when he died in 1677. In 1686 Daniel married Priscilla Allen daughter of William Allen of Gellysweeke, parish of Hubberston. It is therefore likely that he erected his new house at about this time. He died in 1703 and the property was passed to his eldest son. Daniel's Will which is shown reveals that he had five children – three sons and two daughters. The property remained in the Poyer family until it was inherited by John Poyer who died in 1787. It was then passed to his sister Anne who married William Callen thereby bringing the house into the Callen family.

I went with my partner and my sister for an afternoon tea. I love that place from the very beginning, the main entrance feels like entering into a mansion. The decoration quiet elegant. The afternoon tea was delightful, with a great choice of teas. Thanks for the great service to all the staff, very attentive and professional in all the aspects. I definitely coming back soon.

Experience to remember down to every little detail cannot rate it highly enough. Amazing staff. Exquisite dinning al fresco. Gardens so pretty and peaceful the dogs loved their hamper. Cannot wait to come back. 5 star luxury.

Stayed for 3 nights, first night wanted to have a bar meal. Only one member of staff to deal with all areas hence service was extremely slow. First morning breakfast was again slow being served and we had nearly finished our food before we could get a cup of tea. 2nd evening had dinner in main restaurant and although there were now more staff, service still slow. Food was very pretentious and the lamb dish lacked any flavour. 3rd evening dinner in Artisan restaurant, steak and chips but not even possible to get steak cooked correctly, and a request for some vinegar for the chips sent the kitchen into meltdown. All topped off by no hot water for fist 24 hours. Nice room but lacking basic requirements and only one small shower gel for 3 nights. Always wanted to visit this beautiful hotel, but won’t be going back. Pity it could be excellent.

Stunning and a fabulous Hotel. It was our wedding anniversary and how wonderful a part of that was played by this excellent Country House Hotel. The rooms and service were just out of this world. Food of a very high standard both at Breakfast and of course the Evening meals. The wine list is equally superb, with countries around the world represented. We will be back, it is just to good not to be revisited. THANKYOU ALL AT THE GROVE.

The Grove at Narberth is a luxury country house hotel in the heart of the countryside near the market town of Narberth, and is an ideal base from which to explore the world-renowned Pembrokeshire Coast National Park just a few miles away. The main building houses fourteen individually designed rooms and suites that are lavishly appointed yet still contain many of the original period features that make them truly unique. I was with Mrs Gastro Grazer, and as we were feeling particularly extravagant we had booked the Daniel & Elizabeth suite which occupies almost all of the top floor, with an enormous Super King sized Four Poster bed, and stunning views of the of the Preseli Hills from every window. The room was so comfortable we could have stayed forever, and it was only the fact that dinner was being expertly prepared for us by Executive Chef Allister Barsby and his team that made us move. We have eaten Allister’s food before, when he was Head Chef at the two Michelin starred Gidleigh Park in Devon. His style of cuisine is distinctive modern European with a delicate touch of the unexpected that focuses on extracting the full flavour from every ingredient on the plate, and at The Grove he has the benefit of some fantastic local produce from both land and sea, so we knew we were in for a real treat. After a few delicious appetisers, we tucked in to our first course of sweet, succulent hand dived scallops, smoked eel, and parsnip, which had been drizzled with curry and lime, the Sommelier had paired this with a mouth-watering Riesling from New Zealand which matched perfectly. This was swiftly followed by a breast of local wood pigeon accompanied by rich buttery duck liver, salt baked beetroots, hazelnut cream and nasturtium. The fish course was a fillet of beautifully moist and firm fleshed halibut with caramelised cauliflower, sea vegetables, crab, and a langoustine sauce that was packed with flavour. I was delighted to see that our main course was to be a saddle of venison as it is a particular favourite of mine at this time of year, and this was a great example with the tender flesh perfectly cooked and accompanied by roasted vegetables, button mushrooms and chestnut puree. Normally at this stage of the evening you would expect a cheese course, followed by a palate cleanser, but in this case, it was a piece of deep fried Golden Cenarth with Gethin Cyder, fresh apple and hazelnuts, and the pre-dessert was a refreshing “Raita” of yoghurt, pickled cucumber, and mint granita – two examples of that touch of the unexpected I mentioned earlier. We had a fabulous stay at The Grove, and I highly recommend you give it a try, as you can be assured of a warm Welsh welcome with great food and friendly professional service.
