Very nice meal for four Saturday lunchtime! We all had different starters not a complaint about anything . I had the wild mushroom soup beautifully fully of flavour thick and topped with a truffle froth. Main and dessert equally as good. I had black bream special - perfectly cooked along with the risotto ( which has been criticised in a... More

This is a super restaurant. It is small with a tiny bar and the decor not to my taste but it's intimacy meant you could eat and not be disturbed by other diners. It was so good to be able to hear everyone in our party of 6 and sit comfortably. The service was attentive and not oppressing. The food... More

This is by far the best restaurant in the Worcester area serving superb classic cuisine in intimate surroundings. Its not the place for trendy innovation or large groups but for delightful well cooked food by the patron chef supported by his professional front of house man it can't be beaten. The fixed price menu at £40 for canapés plus three... More

My recent visit to this restaurant was after a break of at least seven years. I had experienced two previously unsatisfactory visits and The Venture Inn had dropped off the radar. The only reason I returned was because of the many good reviews on tripadvisor. I wish I had not chosen my birthday to return! When I rang to book... More

this is our special treat, as this restaurant is very close to us. It is one of the very best restaurants I have eaten in anywhere. Toby does a fantastic job in the kitchen and John is the perfect front man. A lovely little eating area and small snug/reception area give this place a very homely feel.

Every time we dine here I am always impressed by the thoroughly civilised feel of the restaurant. This is obviously appreciated by a local well heeled clientele as it is well patronised. The food maintains the highest of standards, which is underscored by a plethora of AA rosettes going back 15+ years. Portion size is sensible and the interesting dishes... More

Am not local to the area but have gone well out of my way to enjoy this restaurant on several occasions- it is always faultless. A totally welcoming and accommodating owner whose chef must be a star, producing from a refreshingly clear, imaginative and adaptable menu a series of genuine treats, plus a friendly and knowledgeable but never intrusive service...

I've eaten here several times over the last few years and every time the experience has been wonderful. From the moment you enter the restaurant to the time you leave the service is friendly and attentive without being at all stuffy. As the customer you are made to feel that your job is to simply relax and indulge and everything... More

Our recent visit to ‘The Venture In’ in Ombersley was once again ‘a feast for the pleasure of one’s taste buds. We are fairly regular visitors to ‘The Venture In’ and I have previously extolled the virtues of this little gem of a restaurant. Time is usually a challenge for most restaurants to maintain their standards but after 15 years... More

My visits to the Venture Inn are sadly restricted to those occasions when we happen to be in the area. Before you venture through the door pleasure starts. The building is ancient, well cared for and very pretty. Then the welcome is warm and friendly and you sit on big, soft couches to enjoy pre-meal drinks as you venture into... More
