Chose the 4 course tasting menu and enjoyed a stream of exciting plates, each beautifully presented. We were one of only 2 tables on the night we visited so there wasn't much atmosphere but service was fantastic with our waitress explaining each dish and the chef came out as we were leaving to say thank you. Wine prices reasonable and... More

Verveine not only looks amazing, out the back of a quaint little fishmongers; but the experience was amazing also. I stumbled across Verveine whilst looking up restaurants with good reviews in my area, and without finding any that looked appealing I opened up the search a bit more and came across Verveine. It looked exactly what we were after, something... More

We travelled to new forest for the weekend and found reviews on here to be fantastic so we thought we would give it a go, we was very impressed with the service and the 6 course tasting menu was incredible, the staff told us exactly what we had on our plate for every course, it was a pleasure to be...

I dined at Verveine with my wife and two friends on Valentines night. There was no choice of dishes, just a special 7 course menu at £65 per head, including two 'surprise' courses, which differed for male and female customers. We had an enjoyable evening, but emerged disappointed with the variety, size and flavour of dishes served, all of which... More

We lunched there on a Saturday. The restaurant is small with a relaxed atmosphere and filled with clientele. The kitchen is in the restaurant which provides an opportunity to see the chefs at work, (and who occasionally venture out with the diners.) The food was different, well presented and loaded with many subtle tastes and textures. Our waitress was extremely... More

Behind the fish shop is this small restaurant with a very welcoming and professional maitre D. The chef is working away behind the kitchen bar and visible to all-comers The menu was a novelty. They have a big list of the... More

My wife took me there to celebrate my work promotion and we couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate. Not many tables at the back of this fish monger, which makes it a more informal, relaxed yet classy environment, and its reputation was well reflected in the quality of the food and the service. The ingredients, the dish presentation,... More

Can you recall a vivid memory of a firework display experienced in childhood? Do you remember being awe-inspired by each burst of colour, shape and sound; bang, whizz or crackle? I remember mine - on Plymouth Hoe, overlooking the breakwater, bursting across the Sound with Drake's Island looking on. How fitting, then, to evoke the same memories in a small... More

Came here and had the 10 course tasting menu, all the food was excellent, interesting and quirky. One of the best meals we've ever had! Service was excellent too.
