Guests visit The Grove, Hertfordshire’s spectacular 5 star hotel resort, for a real breath of fresh air. Central London quality – and benefits - without the hassle. From sheer indulgence to all sorts of outdoor activity across the 300-acre estate, our world-class, award-winning Sequoia Spa and Health Club soothes and stimulates, revitalises and inspires. To continue exceeding our guests’ expectations, we need to rely on, and develop, every member of the team.
Our Glasshouse Restaurant is relaxed, busy and fun, and overlooks our beautiful Formal Gardens through vast conservatory-like windows. On warm days guests are welcome to eat outside on the Terrace and enjoy even more of the beautiful surroundings. The Glasshouse Bar and Terrace is a fab place to meet and enjoy drinks, apéritifs and digestifs, coffee and cake. We redefine the whole notion of luxury buffets, with vast feasts of delectable British, Mediterranean and Asian dishes. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Glasshouse gives guests a chance to see many of our chefs preparing the food before your eyes using rotisseries, woks and wood-fired ovens.
