Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

Have passed this place many times & often commented on how nice it looks, admitted it does look like a country hotel, which it is but the restaurant is open to non residents. So an impromptu call to them set us up a table for 2 on a Friday night as I wanted to treat my wife. We were both surprised when we walked in to the warm welcoming atmosphere. The eclectic decor was to our taste, the staff were very attentive & knowledgeable. The menu has enough choice to have torn between dishes....the food was amazing from start to finish we couldn't believe what we had stumbled upon. Having moved from the Cotswolds where we had been spoilt for choice this is a welcome find & could not recommend it enough. It's not overpriced we thought? If you fancy fancy something a little special head for this place & let's help them them build on a much welcomed restaurant! Thanks to all at Verzon good job. P.s just a thought but is the signage right to bring people in & stop the driving past? Goodluck

Feel compelled to right this review on this Hotel, to spread the good word. living fairly local my wife and I had a night off from the kids, so as we had both been working very long hours lately we thought we would treat ourselves to a night at the Verzon. Food is magnificent, rooms are fabulous, and the service is excellent. Will definitely be back.

Arrived for a business/social celebratory lunch with four friends at 1pm and left many, many hours later!! We loved the new décor and the food was fantastic. The service was excellent and very prompt. But by far the very best, were the staff. Imogen and James were very attentive and went out of their way to look after us.

One of my friends fancied a little bit of chocolate for dessert but as there wasn't anything chocolatey on the dessert menu Imogen disappeared off to the kitchen and melted some chocolate into which she dipped the most delicious, crumbly, 'melt in the mouth' shortbread biscuits. We felt very special and were very impressed with Imogens' customer service.

James was our very own personal bar man for the afternoon. Nothing was too much trouble and we tried everything he suggested!! James really knew his stuff when it came to the drinks available. He had done his homework!

We had the most amazing time at the Verzon and will definitely go back.........if only to see the awesome Imogen and very patient, and knowledgeable James!!!

I was very disappointed after deciding to retry the Verzon following the recent change of management.

Having booked a table in advance I was expecting a lot more. Upon arrival we got some drinks and requested the menu. 45mins later we received the menu after chasing twice. The bar and restaurant was empty without about 5 guests.

We found that we had been ignored, given a lower priority as the staff discussed wedding plans with a couple that arrived after us. Eventually upon being seated in the restaurant we received our meal. The meal itself wasn't bad but wasn't great either, very fancy and little amounts. Upon finishing our mains we found ourselves again waiting for deserts which when someone decided to see to us we opted for the bill instead. I can't see why the service was so shocking as there was only one other couple in the restaurant so it wasn't as though they were rushed of their feet.

Being a local we won't be going back, very surprised and disappointed.

I have been going to the Versions for some 40 years. I was really hoping new owners would bring up the standard. After choking of fumes from a coal fire expelling around the bar the slow service moved us to the restaurant. No offer of a wine menu and no chance to ask for a drink. The starter tasted ok but I could not see it. The lighting was so poor what I guessed was a nicely laid out selection was a stab in the dark. No chance to order drinks I wondered to the bar. This restaurants drinks feature is Chase gin in a large round glass. Very nice. However it seems they have only a few feature glass`s a real pity. After finishing a normal gin at the table some 60 minutes later I was offered a drink, which this time eventually arrived. The steak nicely cooked arrived on a wide rimmed plate, the rim was warm the bottom cold. A rare steak is never hot, stone cold before 50% the way through. I really hope things change or the writing is on the wall. They have already lost dozens of sittings as the rumours grow.
