This pub was established in 1868, initially as the Britannia, although the name was quickly amended to Grove Tavern.  At various times in its history it was leased by the Truman’s, Whitbread and Charrington’s Breweries – the latter through most of the twentieth century.  It became a free house in 1993 and survived as an excellent throw-back to an earlier era, full of old biddies on a Saturday night with a proper sing-along atmosphere (the sort of place my mother assumes all pubs still to be like).
