Don't understand why this restaurant has not yet received a Michelin star or two !! Fantastic meal one of the best I have ever had. We had the 6 course a la carte tasting menu. Favourite courses were Lymington Lobster to start and Warm Chocolate mouse as a 'pre desert'! Absolute heaven. We will return.

Nothing to say. It was just perfect. Tasty with combinations by chef and you don't need to ask for salt or peppers. This is the best restaurant I ever had.

Enjoyed a fabulous fishy feast at Verveine on Friday. We were lucky to get a last minute booking. We were made to feel very welcome and the waitress explained the menu and intrigued us with some crazy hot cold tea. Our meals were delicious to the point of not being able to fit in pudding. The hand made butter (with... More

We had the six course tasting menu which was delicious. Lots of unusual combinations of flavours which worked beautifully together. Service was very good and the wine choices to go with each course were excellent too. Somewhere to go for a treat.

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
