The only thing that is disappointing about Verveine is that it isn’t closer to where we live! We visited for lunch on Saturday and had the lunch tasting menu which was amazing. You could definitely expect to pay double what they charge at Verveine in...More

This restaurant was the reason we chose Milford on Sea for a weekend escape. We had high hopes given the reviews and were not disappointed. So wonderfully relaxing just to be able to say 'Six courses please and bring the wine!'. Nothing to think about...More

Had a lovely birthday dinner here. You don't know what you're going to eat, you just choose the number of courses you want. We could only manage 3, but wished we were hungry enough for more. The food was delicious - really innovative and interesting....More
