Visited on a Friday night. Glad we had reservations because it was busy. Others have mentioned the noise but we were unprepared for the solid wall of noise that hits as you come down the stairs into the basement location. Interesting decor. We were seated and served promptly, and throughout the evening the staff were attentive and friendly. Our starters... More

Went here recently and had the snapper and crab risotto, it was beautiful! Have been here a few times and the food is always good and so is the service. The service is always good too. The only downside is if you have young kids there are a lot of stairs to get to rest rooms which can be tricky,... More

Friends took for dinner to Verve one night, and I was not quite sure what to expect when walking down into a basement, but to say I was pleasantly surprised, would be an understatement. The service was great and the food was excellent. Well worth a visit!

We had a mid week dinner here and the place was more than three quarters full. Verve has a good menu selection and great cider and beer choices. The food was served hot and delicious and in good time. My only gripe would be the noise level of the place exacerbated by its basement location. This was further added to... More

We discovered this basement restaurant recently and knew we would be back again. The food the first time was delicious and now, on our return, it was even better. I definitely recommend this venue for their really amazingly tasty dishes (try the Cajun Prawn Fettuccine) and also their fast and friendly service. I love the atmosphere, the low lighting and...

Some of the tastiest italian food I've had in years the chefs are amazing portions weren't huge especially the pizzas but they were great - everything is perfectly seasoned and the atmosphere is great and they have a huge bar menu. It's in a cellar which means it can be loud and it might not be to everyones taste -... More

A great atmosphere in this basement level restaurant and bar. The staff were lovely, in particular, Scott, who gave me fantastic advice on the wide range of over 60 ciders to choose from. The food was good, with generous portions of tomato risotto and a seafood linguini, with lots of seafood. We also had starters of garlic bread and bruchetta,... More

I feel a little sad about giving this restaurant only three stars. The food was excellent, the service great, you got value for money - but we couldn't wait to get out of there! Literally. As soon as we walked down the stairs, we wanted to walk straight back up them. I'd read the reviews here at TA, so knew... More

Fantastic place for lunch or dinner, down a flight of stairs to an underground cafe and bar area. Ordered the bruschetta, pork belly and an apple/cinnamon/vanilla cider. Bruschetta serving was very generous with yummy fresh tomato and soft bread. Pork belly simply melted, it was delicious. Service was friendly, fast and discreetly attentive. Really enjoyed the meal and ambience of... More
