This really is my favourite place to dine. Third visit and each one just improves. The staff are welcoming, helpful and polite, the interior homely and warm and the food second to none. I'm a fan of well known and highly rated restaurants but nowhere really impresses or pleases me more than here. Thank you for another lovely evening.

We had a lovely welcome and there was a roaring fire. The service was unhurried and not intrusive. There was only one man serving everyone, but he gave the right attention to all. The food was well presented and delicious. For us a place to go on special occasions, certainly an anniversary lunch I will remember. Thank you for making... More

The scallops, Monkfish and chocolate brownie I had were delicious. The ladies in my company also enjoyed the excellent 3 courses they had. Service was excellent with fine wine to accompany the meals. Have visited several times in the last few years and there isn't a better fine dining establishment around for miles.

Christmas Eve at the Venture Inn - PERFECTION. From the kir royale and amuse bouche to the fig tarte tatin and cheeseboard. Every dish was beautifully presented and tasty. The pasta with my turbot/lobster was worth a visit in itself.

Best meal we've had this year. The scallops, halibut and prune tart were simply exquisite and the service was second to none. This was our 1st visit but definitely not the last. A memorable and special meal that we loved! The mince pies were also divine! Ignore the 2 bad reviews think it's Scrooge and The Grinch!

We dined at the Venture In the19th December for my wife's Birthday treat. On arrival the staff were very attentive and the food served (although the main course was very rich) very was well presented in appearance. I chose the smoked salmon and beef (mains) while my wife ordered the chicken parfait and seabass with prawns & scallops (mains). Unfortunately... More
