The Granville has carved out an excellent reputation for serving modern European food of the highest quality and is featured in The Good Food Guide and other major listings.

Full of character, The Granville is divided into a comfortable sofa area, a bar area and an eating area, with a central fireplace. Outside, there is an enclosed garden with a patio area, where up to 40 customers can dine al fresco.

The bar serves traditional Kentish cask ale and distinctive international lagers and offers a good selection of wine by the glass.

Recommended - consistently enjoyable and good food and environment. Service can be slightly inattentive and inconsistent on some visits.

The Granville is a top-end pub grub type of place. All the favourite dishes are there but done better than anywhere else. All food is freshly-prepared - you can see it being done! Good selection of beers and wines, too. Vegan options available on the food and wine menu!

Great place for a family reunion with 3 children under the age of 4 yrs. Our only whim was that we were sat at a table close to the kitchen opening , it did become a bit smokey at times when the steak etc was on the grill . We all liked our chosen food , and the children ate all of their's too. No stress , very relaxed and enjoyable Thank you.

100% recommend! If you love a steak the best place to go! Better than some of the steak houses in London! Never ever had a bad meal.

Food was a decent pub quality, service was very attentive and friendly. I was a little surprised the selection of cask ales was so poor, especially as it was New Years Eve!
Would give it another go if in the area

Surprisingly amazing food! The trout was fantastic, the aubergine delicious, even the soup of the day was so tasty! Service is a bit grumpy though, that's why I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars.

We had a small family informal lunch at The Granville. The menu had changed since we were last there a couple of years ago, but plenty of options for our mixed group of carnivores, vegetarians and vegans. Service was excellent throughout. The whole family enjoyed the meal, which counts for a lot!

Again as always fab u lous - we don’t come often but it never disappoints, especially now they do roast dinners all night long on a Sunday.
The plus for us was the live music, a great duo. All in all a great evening.
All the staff here are very good too, always polite and friendly, a great bunch of people.

The meal was very disappointing and not up to the standards we remember having eaten there many times before. My wife's "roast beef" was essentially raw, just cooked on the outside. The carrots and parsnips were also grilled but essentially uncooked and extremely tough - it was impossible to cut them with the knives provided! My pork was nice and well cooked, but - NB - it had obviously been precooked and heated up. The crumbles were good.

Burger tasted burnt but the menu was good. Lots of choice for foodies. However, a little noisy and the staff were confused about a lot of things regarding orders and what food was actually on the menu etc. Has potential to be great

I returned after 8 month after having bad service I would say it has improved the service and this occasion was of a high standered
The food was hot good quality and rally enjoyed. The Sunday lunch was a bit pricey.

Although the food was very good the service most certainly wasn't. The waitress was irritable and didn't respond well to requests. Didn't feel welcome so certainly wouldn't feel comfortable returning.

Monday must be a poor day for the Granville. Soup was cold, two portions of Fish & Chips had no tarts sauce and amount of custard to go with Crumble was appalling minimal

We have been to the Granville on numerous occasions over many years and it has generally been a good experience.However recent visits have been distinctly average and last Saturday's will be the last for some time to come.The service was not very good,the amount of noise from the party on the neighbouring table was so loud it was often difficult to hear each other and the portions,especially the starters,seem to have got smaller and smaller over time.
