To access the restaurant you walk through the wet fish shop!! Empty when I went as it was for dinner, a tasting meal in Food Week. It had an 'Indian' theme but I have to say it was most unlike any old Indian meal!! The flavours were exquisite, subtle and utterly delicious. I can't wait to go back again when... More

All week we have been looking forward to experiencing Verveine's lunch time tasting menu and finally today it was upon us! Absolutely magical food, experience, atmosphere, the list goes on! Each dish had a surprise within every corner of the plate - like the camouflaged seafood sugar which if you weren't paying attention you wouldn't notice it on your plate... More

I went here for my birthday treat and it was the perfect place to go. Not only is the food delicious but the presentation fantastic. Such as the smoked haddock pate that comes in a flower pot with edible earth ( a mixture of almonds, mushrooms and something else I can't quite remember). The wine recommendations are spot on and...

We are fortunate to live in Milford on Sea which is fast becoming a real foodie destination in the New Forest. As it was Milford Food Week, with lots to choose from, we were tempted by Verveine's Tapas Tasting Menu. At only £45 per person for six courses, including 3 sherries, this was great value, made all the more amazing... More

I was at the restaurant for dinner on Saturday the 29th and can only say positives about the restaurant! The selection of dishes was fantastic and I particular liked the Board with fresh Fish you could select and then have it cooked in one of the four ways as detailed on the menu. The waiter was very helpful with giving... More

We live an hour away and had to come here to see what everybody on Tripadvisor is raving about. Wow, were we not let down! Absolutely everything was either very good or outstanding and that I've not found at Michelin starred restaurants before. Wasn't too sure about being put on a table in a small walkway to the main dining... More

Absolutely stunning meal from start to finish. We had lunch which was gorgeous, stylish, fun and fresh - what more could you ask for. The chef was friendly and charming. We were well looked after and already planning our return visit. Highly recommended.

Been here three times in recent months and never been disappointed. Staff attentive and friendly and the main man is enthusiastic and knowledgeable with an obvious passion for producing great food with a touch of finesse and panache. Can't recommend It highly enough.

Our third visit to Verveine and it gets better every time. A small intimate restaurant with stunning decor. Went on my wife's birthday and were given a bonus birthday dish which was Mash potato and vanilla ice cream which was absolutely amazing! Impeccable service, especially Dominic who is very knowledgable with the wines and all the food, always takes time... More

we went to celebrate a wedding anniversary and found the restaurant to be everything you would want in a wonderful night out. The service was impeccable - attentive and friendly without being in your face. A knowledgable wine menu (yes we went for the wine tasting menu too!). The food was superb. It was inventive without being pretentious and having... More
