I went there with my Vegetarian friend for dinner. It gave us some lovely options. Whilst me mainly shared our tapas we also were able to order for 1 person. The food is absolutely AMAZING! Staff brought some toys for my toddler to keep her occupied and were lovely with her. There was only one older staff member who was... More

My husband and I went for Sunday lunch and were seated on the balcony which has a great view of the grounds. I loved this place! The service was prompt and friendly, the menu was reasonably priced and the dishes were mouth watering good. We will definitely be returning.

I visited Verandah on a saturday night with my friends, and it was a great experience. The fire place is very welcoming on a cold winters night. The menu is diverse and has a lot of offer diners. My favourite was the pork belly, highly recommended. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly.

Partner and I enjoyed lunch at Verandah on a sunny winter afternoon. We chose to share the tapas tower as we had enjoyed the chorizo on a previous visit and it was now only available on the tower. The dishes were all cooked well and we had more than enough food and choice that we were unable to finish it.... More

We went for dinner and I would say it was not overly busy. Food The food was great, well presented and proton sizes were perfect. I would suggest 5 dishes. The produce tasted fresh and there was an element of creativity without be a Heston experiment. I would say that it is on par with any Tapas style food I... More

Went here for dinner with friends. They had pre booked, so we got the best table alongside the fire, on a very cold night. The restaurant large with well spaced tables. The menu is Tapas and plenty to choose from. Can recommend the beef cheeks, pork belly, calamari and oysters.

I took my mother for lunch, at her request, and I wasn't disappointed. The food was amazing, the wine was fantastic, the location was beautiful, and the staff were friendly. Definitely worth the visit.

We visited recently for lunch and what a pleasant surprise - I don't usually enjoy Tapas but this was well worth the visit - great selection of dishes to try, varied wine menu, very attentive staff - who showed good knowledge of both the menu and the wine list. Great seating outside on the deck - and it warm and... More
