Real ale available again since 2015 after a couple of years absence. Purity UBU is usually on along with one or two guest beers. The quirky décor features Star Wars and other sci-fi, soft toys hanging over the bar and plastic soldiers stuck to the ceiling. The Grove is run by the same company as the Lord Nelson in Southwark and shares its award winning menu. All day reduced prices for students on selected drinks plus 20% off full food menu (valid student card required). Monthly Rock 'n' Roll Party and frequent DJ nights are popular, as are the regular open mike nights Had previously spent a brief spell as 'Tonico’s' coffee bar before reverting to the Grove in 2010.
