our weekend in the new forest was definitely kicked off well, by our saturday lunch at this restaurant. The fish was obviously the speciality, but the chocolate taster desert was also very good and homemade.

We went there last night and had the tasting menu. Firstly the service was amazing and the restaurant itself was very intimate and completely unpretentious. Not really knowing what to expect with the tasting menu as it's a blind menu, we opted for the 6 courses. Every course was divine and had a massive flavour explosion in your mouth. To... More

We visited Verveine for my husband's birthday and we had their taster menu. It was very nice. Well presented, very clean restaurant and lovely staff. I am not a great lover of tuna and dessert but this place made me change my mind. The desert was amazing. Would I go back there again yes.

My wife and I have been to this restaurant three times before and last Friday lunchtime brought two very good friends who had yet to experience the delights! We all had the 6 course tasting menu, it didn't disappoint in any way. I just love coming to this restaurant, it's always a treat to the senses, you never feel full... More

My wife and I ate at the restaurant on Friday 4th November. We opted for the taster menu of six dishes and I had the accompanyuing wine too. The food was truly brilliant. Each small dish was expertly cooked and wonderfully satisfying. From the hot and cold green tea to the fisherman's friend meringue petit four! Service was friendly and... More

Visited with partner and parents. Food was excellent and for fine dining, good portions. Service was adequate considering the small number of waiting staff. Environment is interesting, not too loud and wine menu well priced. This would be a 5* review apart from two things: 1) we have been here 3-times over the past 8-months and the menu has not... More

Good morning, Thank you for your review and for coming to support us 3 times in the last 8 months. I would like to address the point of the fish choice not being market fresh. As you walk into Verveine you pass through our fish mongers where all of the fish we serve comes in daily depending on seasonal, sustainable... More

It was a quiet evening but felt very relaxed. Our lovely waitress was really helpful and very knowledgeable. Basically you choose the fish you would like and then pick the accompaniments/flavour to go with it. So many different fish to choose from!! Everything was amazing - including the fizzing grapes! The starters were all unusual and also the desserts. It... More

My husband and I were staying in the area and looking for a pub for lunch. I saw the fish restaurant sign, so we stopped to have a look. Going through the fish shop at the front, what a surprise to see a modern light restaurant. We were greeted with a friendly smile and shown to a table by the... More

Birthday treat. the six course taster menu with wine was incredible. I won't share the fabulousness you will experience, but it was incredible. Fish like you have never eaten before. Fantastic puds too.
