  • If you are the sensitive type it may be best to avoid this place however if you can take a joke and love your liquors this destination is amongst one of the finest 
  • great place and wonderfully distilled spirits. Steve is quite the character and you will enjoy a good laugh if you have him for a tasting session. I recommend the chili vodka 
  • Had so much fun taste testing the liqueurs, ports and muscats a few weeks ago. Great customer service, beautiful location and we bought a bottle of chocolate port and one of turkish delight liqueur to...  more »

  • The liqueurs at The Grove are very nice, but the owner seems to have confused bullying with 'humour'. Apparently The Grove 'Experience' is being served tired, boring and nasty jokes along with the tasters. Sorry mate, but being funny takes a little bit more than trotting out 50 year old stereotypes and then staring at your audience aggressively to provoke a response.
  • This place has some of the best liqueurs I've tasted. The tastings were delivered superbly without any pretension (None needed, their stuff is amazing!) by the owner/manager (I believe), Steve. This place will now definitely be my first, and probably last stop while visiting the area. Thanks Steve! P.s. I write this while enjoying their "Bighouse Ale"... Would recommend!
  • Fantastic! Steve presented the ports and whiskeys straight up and honest. His humour is dry but that's his business. If he has a poke at you, be honoured ... It means he likes you from the rest. Some people have called him crass and unsavoury .. Anyone heard of Mick Molloy? Same humour and he has become successful from it. This society needs to harden up and learn how to take a joke it's just Aussie banter. Good on you Steve keep up the great entertainment and I hope the business thrives as it so deserves.
  • I attended the bush tucker tour at the Grove recently - had a great time, left with a lot of delicious port and received great service from the owner and staff. Would definitely recommend to friends and visit again. Thanks! Anne
  • Normally I have put up with the owners unsavoury and crass behaviour as I have previously been to The Grove twice before, however when I organised a group tour with Bushtuckers, I did not expect the owner to have gotten worse with his disgusting behaviour. He seems to pick on anyone that is not a mirror image of himself and when called out on his behaviour he says that we all can't handle a "joke". I don't personally think that a comment about what my scarf could be hiding and insinuating that I was a cross dresser - is a "joke" and it can and HAS offended people. I am embarrassed that I thought that this establishment could have changed its behaviour due to having constant negative feedback. Your port and liquors are what I wanted my friends to experience not a disgusting "show" of crass , demeaning and demoralising comments. We would have happily purchased items at this establishment , however due to this owners behaviour we decided our money should be spent elsewhere.
