My wife and I and family eat fairly regularly at this restaurant. We have never had a bad moment. That, coming from me, who otherwise finds issues every single time we dine out, is a strong recommendation that this is a place to visit.

As always we found this place by seeing reviews on trip advisor. We went for the set lunch menu and we were delighted. The food quality was superb and the presentation and service was a delight. Although not our usual sort of lunch due to the cost we treated ourselves and the price reflects the quality. Great place for lunch,... More

The restaurant offers inventive cooking whilst keeping the fish as the star of the show. The care and craft involved in combining flavours left us feeling we should be taking notes. Desserts were similarly expertly crafted. We loved the restaurant but were pleased to be sitting by the back window at the furthest point from the tiny open kitchen as... More

What a gem hidden away for a lunchtime visit to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Each course was prepared and presented by the staff who explained how it was made and what went into it. Well worth a second visit to sample the chefs inspired attempts to excite the palate. Superb seafood to eat. Many thanks.

Last weekend we camped in the beautiful Pylewell Park for the Curious Arts Festival and decided to go exploring. We had never been to Milford or heard of Verveine before, but on a whim as we drove through we decided to stop and look for lunch. It was a Saturday but it was very easy to park, and we then...

Great atmosphere and love that it's in the back of a fishmonger. The food was really nice but sometimes seemed a bit more overcomplicated than necessary. That being said - we still appreciated the lovely and creative presentation. The (I think it was) smoked mackerel pate in a pot with their delicious butter and bread was probably the highlight for...

Went with my wife a week ago. Selected the eight course taster menu and found it to be sensational. Great service, superb food. Magnificent! Will be taking our friends and I highly recommend others go there too.

If you are a fish lover I can recommend this restaurant. It a little unusual. The restaurant is behind the fish monger shop as you enter, I would recommend asking for a table away from the kitchen as this can be a little busy and hot. The main dining area is good with large patio windows that can be opened... More
