Hubby and I had the honour of getting the last table reservation on Valentines night. It is a bit weird when you walk in as it is infact a fish shop at the front, with the restaurant at the back. Ok, firstly I adore fish, hubby only loves two types, scallops and monkfish!, They had on offer two menus, the... More

Just had an excellent lunch at Verveine , we had the taster menu to celebrate, Love Milford Week. Service was excellent & each dish served was explained as to what the ingredients were & how it was cooked.

Well what a great find!! We had a lovely meal here on Valentine's Day, it's a fantastic resturant and we had such a lovely evening. From the lovely and polite staff down to our beautiful and tasty food. It's clear to see that this resturant takes pride on each meal presented, food bursting with flavours on every bite.

Certainly nothing frightening about this meal. Absolutely fantastic 8 course tasting menu. Some good variety and great matching wines chosen by someone who knew what they were doing. Chef is wonderful and the sashimi grade tuna was our fave course. Only point that could be improved was the wine glasses used for tasting menu - taller stems and better quality... More

Our favourite place came up trumps again with their 4 course Valentines menu . Such good value and amazing flavours, especially the smoked chicken and brown shrimp starter. Shame it's only for one day . Can't wait for our next visit. ,!

Thanks to Tripadvisor I booked a business lunch yesterday. You would be forgiven for walking past this restaurant as at the front it is a fishmongers in the sleepy seaside village of Milford on Sea. If you love the best, freshest fish then this is the place to eat. with only about 20 covers this is a small, intimate restaurant.... More

we had eaten here previously mid-week and the food and service were great. But when we came at the weekend with friends, the service was so slow it became something of a joke .. and to cap it all, the fish was overcooked. The kitchen seemed to be overwhelmed and the waiting staff seemed unable to cope either. the restaurant... More

I have to say I am not usually a big fish connoisseur, but frankly the meal we had today at Verveine was spectacular. I cannot rate this place more highly. The restaurant itself is completely unassuming; arriving you enter into a simple enough fish shop, but the restaurant area itself with it's open kitchen is in the back. The friendly,... More

I don't often write reviews on trip advisor ....for the simple reason ...if 1 thing goes wrong ..i.e wine not available ..booking name slightly wrong ...guests use it as an excuse to take apart people's livelihood .. I could also do what everyone else does, and say I have eaten in the " top restaurants in the world blah blah... More
