Description: The Grosvenor Arms is newly refurbished, it is traditional yet stylish, relaxed yet ‘buzzy’, and open all day. You are always welcome, for a drink in the bar, a cup of coffee in the conservatory, or a pizza from the wood oven. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the paved courtyard is always available for an alfresco lunch or drink. The bar, deli and courtyard are open all day for food, 7.30am -10pm, and the restaurant from 12- 3.00pm and 6.00 – 10pm. Drop in at any time to eat at our bar, enjoy brunch, or for tea and cake in the conservatory. We serve great coffee and specialist loose leaf teas. Our relaxed restaurant serves the finest ingredients, simply, but whenever possible, seasonal, local, wild and organic. Our wood oven produces the best thin crust pizzas, and the most delicious slow cooked shoulder of pork...

On a recent visit to Shaftesbury had the misfortune to eat dinner at The Grosvenor Arms. On arrival we were the only guests, the greeting was not overly friendly and the service thereafter poor. Our starters were nondescript but more importantly my lamb hamburger was totally undercooked with the centre of the hamburger COLD. Main course replaced by which time my wife had almost finished her meal. Furthermore my chips were very greasey On departure, totally ignored by the waiters.

Says it all really...
Popped in here for a pizza... and it was really tasty. The wine was good and coffee afterwards was good too.

The Grosvenor was very busy in the restaurant and the various lounges. Service was fine and it was all reasonably priced.

No complaints. Shall return.

We stayed here overnight. Great location. I would have given this a "good" but there wasn't the option on trip advisor and felt it was better than "average". Receptionist who checked us in took us to the wrong room initially as she couldn't remember which room we were supposed to be in! Room nice and clean. Bathroom okay but plug in the shower tray was so blocked the water couldn't drain very well. Nice toiletries. Food and staff in the restaurant were good. Nice breakfast. No car park but had to park 2 minutes away which wasn't a problem.
