“Decent place for a lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

We've had a late lunch at the Verve a few weeks back when we were cycling to the circus in Birkdale. They were still serving food no problem, and despite that I always imagined it to be more of a bar than a restaurant, the menu itself was fairly large with good selections of dishes and reasonable prices. The food we've had was also quite tasty and we could sit outside in the sun which is always a bonus. There weren't too many people there at the time but be warned that it can get pretty hectic at times.

“Breakfast for a special occasion.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

My boys decided that they would like to take dad out for a birthday breakfast to celebrate his 50th, The Verve was chosen, and I'm so glad that it was!!
On arrival the staff were warm and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble when the boys decided to create their own menu. When the food arrived it was exactly what we ordered and HOT, which I always find never happens normally warm.
To finish with coffee and the papers round of the breakfast really well.
My boys are asking when the next time is we are going for breakfast, they loved it so much.
Well done to all at the verve. Xx

“Great lunch, smart atmosphere, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

There are not many really smart places that work from breakfast to evening but Verve does that. I tend to have lunch there and it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and delivers great food. Nothing over complicated but it does the basics well and the service is excellent. It is a smart place to go with friends and family and the menu has sufficient range to suit all ages and all times of day. It is a pleasure to go back there on a regular basis.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review regarding your experience at Verve. We are somewhat bemused that you find our drink prices to be expensive. A single spirit with a mixer costs from £3.60 and draught lager costs from £3.10 a pint. We monitor the prices that our competitors charge on a regular basis to ensure that our prices are competitive and we feel that for the standard of the establishment that we are operating our prices are very reasonable. We only sell premium brands as analysis shows that is what our customers want and expect. There are establishments in the vicinity where I am sure that drinks can be purchased cheaper but, as you so rightly expressed in your review, Verve is very much the place to be seen in the village.
