Took my parents to this restaurant as my mum loves seafood, We had scallops, halibut, monkfish & the slow cooked belly pork. All delicious no wine just water, bill came to £100. Restaurant nicely Decorated but no view of course as It's on a high street. Welcoming Greeting from owner and attentive service.

We've stayed near Milford on Sea a number of times but we only stumbled by chance on this place on the last trip; what a discovery! The little restaurant is at the back of the fish market / fishmonger by day. It's not cheap but is good value. Service was excellent, the choice of dishes and fish is really good,... More

This little restaurant is perfect. The food is wonderful, the atmosphere is good and the service is perfect. It's not cheap but good value and it's such a foodie adventure. We had 3 courses for our special occasion but will be returning for a main course and a glass of wine many times in the future

Four of us for lunch, nice set menu, excellent food and reasonably priced, these lunches. Very nice, friendly, professional service. The food (fish) is absolutely great and the dessert was out of this world. Thanks

This was not the first time we have been to this restaurant whilst staying in the New Forest, but the first time we went the meal was lovely, and continues to get even better whcih we did not think was possible. This time the meal was wonderful. We had the Lamb and the Smoked Haddock for starters followed by different... More

Wow what a treat. My wife and I had the best wedding anniversary so far. Staff were attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly. As we didn't opt to go for the tasting menu with wine. we asked Dominic who I think was the sommelier/manager if we could pair wines with our three course. Starters we both had the lobster with white... More

I should say at the outset, giving this restaurant an 'over all' grading is impossible as some parts were excellent and some were not. I had read the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and was tempted to try the restuarant. Upon entry through the fishmonger area, we were given a warm and efficient welcome (the booking name was remembered and I... More

I've been going to Verveine for years with my husband and friends. I came with my parents this time. As usual the service was excellent and the food was wonderful. If you like fish, you can't fault Verveine. Fish as fresh as can be and thoughtful, tasty accompaniments. The sherbert fountain pre dessert is simply amazing! We sat on the... More

Had the 10 course tasting menu with matching wines I don't want to say too much about the experience as wouldn't want to spoil the surprise but suffice to say it was top class, delicious and we will definitely return. The staff were attentive and attention to detail fabulous. What a great place.

Live close by and have been looking at the £30 six course lunch time taster as I walk by. Treated my dear wife on her birthday and was not disappointed. The courses kept coming and lost count half way through a very good bottle of wine. Apparently its all a surprise and depends on what they have in. Fantastic value... More
