First time I have been to this restaurant. This was a Carvery and although things were a little 'shakey' to start with (table not ready, drinks did not arrive) the meal was very good for the money and ther service improved. Bearing in mind it was very busy no real complaints. Would have liked to have seen tablecloths used but... More

Would like to be able to review the food but as I had my booking cancelled by the hotel before Mothers Day I can only review the atrocious customer service. I booked via Open Table then had a call a week ago to say that although it didn't say at time of booking I had to pay the full cost... More

We live within walking distance of this restaurant and regularly go to the The Victory Pub within the hotel. We have been for a meal at The Verve before and really enjoyed it so we booked for my birthday last night - we were really disappointed! We were handed a paper menu which had a limited choice of food on... More

We stayed on the "feel good friday" offer this time and had another great stay. The offer of one nights stay, 2 course dinner + prosecco for two is great and everything was really good. We are always particularly impressed with the restaurant, great service and they are very good at dealing with adaptations for intolerance's. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is lovely and has a great atmosphere. The food is generally very good. Today , however , the food was very disappointing. The meat was particularly tough and the vegetables very dried out. The gravy was very Waterbury . Overall not a nice meal today

Booked the New Year Celebration in the Inspiration Suite at £91 per person. Canapes were advertised and the waiters entered the bar with some but insufficient to allow everyone to have one. People sitting at a table in the inspiration suite bar with carrier bags and clearly staying in the hotel but not dressed for this event took the last... More

The food at the verve is always good, well presented, however I think the menu needs to change, for frequent visitors, we have stayed here several times and it would be nice to see some new dishes.
