awesome fish dishes. Great English wine.....yes I did say English! Have the pre-desert liquorice ice cream with sherbert, it is phenomenal. Friendly and attentive service. Definitely deserves 5 stars but I have withheld one star as the acoustics are not good. Meal interrupted by loud drunk woman 3 tables away. They need to hang some paintings or soft materials to...

The place itself is tastefully decorated, the staff is knowledgable and very pleasant and the the food is amazing! Every bite was a taste sensation!

I just want to say thank you to the owner and staff at Verveine for making my birthday extra special last Saturday. We had some of the most stunning food we've ever tasted. We had a table for 8 and the service was exceptional as well. We will definitely be coming back!

Our 3rd visit and just as fantastic and innovative as ever. This time we did the 8 course tasting menu with matching wines and salivated the whole way through. You get to try different things this way and chef does definitely know what works best with each fish. I took a photo of each course as they are all presented... More

we had dinner at Verveine with some friends who live in the area. The food was delicious.The fusion of flavours was an ochestra in my mouth. The company was delightful, the wine sublime and the atmosphere enchanting. The attention to detail and the presentation of the food was impressive. The staff are well trained and took delight in telling us... More

Dined here for a special birthday surprise. Opted for the eight course tasting menu with wine flight, then spent a lovely three hours sampling some delicious sea food, not forgetting the liquorice and sherbet dessert and beautifully exquisite petit fours. Spoke to the owner/chef David as we left to thank him. The food and wine matching was delightful. We will... More

Verveine is in the heart of the "foodie" village of Milford on Sea, about 3 miles from it's bigger sister, Lymington. The restaurant is at the back of a fishmonger's shop - very trendy. Service is professional and knowledgeable from a mainly young waiting staff. This is a fish restaurant, so don't come if you're veggie or don't like fish!... More

If you go nowhere else in Milford on Sea, this restaurant is a must. My Hubby takes me every year for my birthday, he starts off grumpy, as he is a grumpy ole man and finishes up with a huge smile thanking David, chef and owner for a marvellous, wonderful tasting meal. Around Christmas we will be there again for... More

Had heard about this restaurant and took the opportunity to give it a try after a fun days sailing. Food, staff and the overall experience were excellent. The presentation and the taste of the food were great. Really enjoyed the Halibut with chorizo – best fish dish I’ve eaten in a long while. Looking forward to returning soon.

A bargain. Food like this in London would be at least 3-4 times as expensive. I had a 6 course taster menu. This was no taster. This was a full 6 course meal with full sized dishes. I am staggered people think this is over priced. It is excellent value for the quality and effort put into the food. The... More
