New Gem at The Grove Conservatory Restaurant 7 April 2008

The Grove Conservatory Restaurant has now reopened for summer 2008, with a new Chef and a completely new menu for enjoyment by all those eating out in the North of the Island.

A PetzaAngelo Petza, former chef of Paparazzi Restaurant opened the newly refurbished Grove Conservatory Restaurant, with the aim of tapping into a bespoke market in Ramsey through his new venture, which he has undertaken through the Irvings Group, who operate the catering franchise at the Grove on behalf of Manx National Heritage.

Commenting on the launch, Angelo said:

“The Grove Conservatory is a beautiful venue in the peaceful surroundings of the Grove Museum where a traditional tea room menu is available during the day, combined with a more bespoke menu for Friday and Saturday evenings and small private functions at the restaurant. I am sure that all those who visit will enjoy the new menu, together with the peace and tranquillity of the Grove. A completely no smoking policy is operated both within the restaurant and within the grounds of the Grove. Soft drinks are available, although all those visiting for an evening meal are invited to bring their own wine to enjoy with their meal”.

Originally graduating from catering college in Sardinia, Angelo moved to the Isle of Man in 1991 and has worked at prestigious local restaurants including The Sound Restaurant and Ciapelli’s.

The Conservatory Restaurant has recently been newly refurbished by Manx National Heritage and is located at The Grove Museum of Victorian Life situated on the outskirts of Ramsey and part of the award winning Story of Mann.

The Grove itself was originally developed as the summer retreat for a Victorian merchant and tells the story of the ‘Gibbs’, a wealthy Victorian family in the Isle of Man. The period rooms display sumptuous original furnishings, costumes and a wealth of accumulated possessions, while the complex of outbuildings show early farm vehicles and equipment from the Victorian era.

A small admission charge applies to anyone wishing to visit the museum, although admission to the Conservatory Restaurant is completely free of charge.

The Grove is open from 10am to 5pm daily until 31st October, whilst the Conservatory Restaurant is open from 10am to 4.30pm each day. A table d’ote menu including both local Manx and Italian dishes is now available on Friday and Saturday evenings between 6pm and 9.30pm (last orders) & early booking is advised. Bookings can be made by telephoning Angelo on 816791 or 458007.
