After 11 years , Dave and Ruth will be leaving the corner pin on 24th may 2019. The next pub they will be taking on is the Little Plough in town. the phone number for the corner pin will be changing due to new tenants. thank you

 Highly recommended !!!!!
I have been living in Doncaster all my life and never wanted to go into the Grove inn due to one thing or another, but as per recommendations from family and friends I tried it, and I was very surprised to see a lovely beer garden at the rear of the property, with swing and a slide for the kids and a fantastic sun trap area so its not too cold, the food was not pre packed but yet home made, and staff was always smiling. good job Grove inn. will I revisit ...of course.

 UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT
After reading previous posts i thought id give it the benefit of doubt and you'll never believe it i was quite surprised to be greeted by new landlord Gary who is warm and welcoming. After reading previous reviews i was quite unsure but the Grove Inn was recommended by a few people and on this and my experience of dining there i would highly recommend great food, you actually get a decent pint and a great family atmosphere.

 Great pub
Went to The Grove Inn today for Sunday carvery and was happily surprised after reading the last review on this site. Welcomed with friendly faces from start, good job we reserved a table as it was very busy. Colin the landlord took the time to come and see us and ask if everything was ok with our meal. The meal had everything you could think of from an abundance of vegetables, roast parsnips, roast and mashed potatoes, yorkshires pudding and stuffing balls. You could have a choice of 3 meats and even pie if you chose to. Everything was lovely.

The pub has now been taken over by a new Landlord who is not very accommodating and rude. The food isnt that good either!

This has obviously changed since 2005. Stayed at Ouston Hall and ate at the lodge the first night (saturday). Food was so good we ate again at the sunday carvery, so good we ate again in the evening and again on the Monday lunchtime. Put on weight but it was worth it. Excellent food and excellent staff. Very friendly and helpful. Will certainly be making a return trip in the future.

 high quality good value
we have been ina few doncaster pubs when weve visited docnaster for shopping but reckon the white swan must be one of the best. great range of beers not as cheap as some bargain chains but cheaper than many. we drink real ale but noted a wide range of other beers and lagers as well. The food is superb value for example 8oz sirloin steak and chips 4.95. we visit every time we go to town.

 Excellent ales and food
Very enjoyable couple of pints, Timothy Taylors Landlord and Theakstons XB both excellently served. This pub is Cask Marque so Steve knows what hes doing. Also very good food and certainly value for money, less than five minutes walk from the railway station. Try it and see what you have been missing.

 worst meal ever!!
we had a mixed grill at 9.45 this was the smallest mixed grill i have ever seen with frozen chips and onion rings that were still greasey! and we also had salmon with frozen veg that managed to be mushy and yet still hard in the middle also with frozen chips that were greasey.

 Great
Excellent local. Doesn't look much like a pub from the outside; more like a bizarre house. However, Carol the landlady is very hospitable and cooks great food too. Good place to take the kids for a meal in the restaurant area on the right, enjoy a quiet pint in the bar on the left or sit in the sun with a pint outside. Prices aren't bad either!!! Great balance of old fashioned local and modern family pub.

 Lovely pub and excellent food
A pub with a real warm welcome, excellent beer and fantastic food at a reasonable price. Nice beer gardens for the summer and cosy warm fires in the winter. A brilliant local but worth a visit from further afield.
