WHAT'S NEW AT GROVE PARK DELI - Autumn warmers
Ingredients are always our priority when it comes to our soups, we always make ours 24 hours in advance, so the flavours can blend perfectly. We also follow the seasons, so in summer we will often make a cold Soup such as Vine Tomato and Basil and in the winter hearty warm Split Pea and Roast Deli Ham Soup, to warm your insides and fill you up.
We have a different Soup everyday made in store, all without a stock cube or thickening agent in sight and most suitable for vegetarians, so you can be guaranteed that they are MSG, Gluten and worry free.
