Meet Chris, Delacombe's New Venue Manager!


Ballarat Groovers! We are pleased to announce that our store in the Delacombe Town Centre is reopening Thursday 16th of January. Before you come in and enjoy the delicious meals you've been missing, get to know our new venue manager Chris!

What can locals expect to see on the menu?

Australian and Mediterranean cuisine made from the freshest ingredients and cooked by our expert team of chefs.

What’s unique about The Groove Train and its offering?

We’re very family friendly with a menu to suit everyone, including kids and a special vegan menu. We can cater for larger groups including functions, birthdays or get togethers as there is a choice for everyone on the menu.

You’re also the owner of a Groove Train store in Forest Hill. What can Delacombe locals expect from the new and improved Delacombe location?

Outstanding food and service! Our staff are individually trained in customer service and have expert knowledge of catering for different needs. We have outstanding experience in catering for all size functions and looking after everyone.

Can you tell us a bit about the style and interior fitting and décor of the restaurant?

The restaurant has a modern rustic look with a relaxed atmosphere. It’s great for entertaining your friends and family, and also perfect for a cup of coffee or happy hour drinks.

If you had to pick one experience or dish on the menu, what would you recommend?

The salt and pepper calamari is to die for! It’s one of the most popular dishes on the menu and is tender, tasty and just mouth-watering.
