It has been too long since I last ate here, but over the years it has always been a memorable experience. The service is unobtrusive but attentive, the atmosphere civilised but lively; the food always extremely good and not over priced. For the number of times I have been to the Venture Inn, the law of averages would dictate that one person in the party might have a less than excellent meal or experience, but that has never been the case.
It is consistently excellent.

I have eaten here many times over the years and quite simply, this is consistently the best place to eat in Worcestershire. My only gripe is I don't eat here as often as I would like to as it is difficult to get a table at short notice. This is a special place.

We have been coming to the Venture Inn for 10 years or more and it is difficult to fault. We were the last to book for the Saturday so were told that it would be 9pm arrival to eat at 9.30pm- and so it was, with time for a drink first and a look at the menu. My wife had the smoked salmon as she loves the home smoked salmon prepared on the premises, whilst I had one of the specials, that I have had in the past, the carpaccio of beef with oil and parmesan- as good as ever. Then the baked cod for my wife- a portion that was bigger than her appetite but beautifully presented with potato as fish scales on top, an onion confit and white sauce. I could not resist the fillet of beef in a wine sauce, with potatoes in a stack with green veg and a small fried egg on top- original and delicious. Green veg on the side and the batter roasted carrots and parsnips washed down with a few glasses of the house Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. No room for pud but, as has been the case for about 30 visits over 10 years- about as good as it gets. £110 for two including a glass of champagne to start felt good value with about 50% being drink.

We have just had a great Sunday lunch at the Venture In. It was our Anniversary and Dad's birthday and we had a really good time. The restaurant was pleasantly cool despite a very hot day and staff were really friendly and the service was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals which were beautifully cooked and well-presented.

I visited the Venture Inn with my wife and two friends. We were a little late arriving due to work comitments and then found it a little difficult to get a seat to have a drink and read the menu.

That was the only issue we had though! The menu was small but well chosen - I could have eaten all of the selections. The options were really well thought through with a number of locally sourced options including game.

The food was really well cooked and extremely tasty - highlights were the scallops and the steak.

We were also very well looked after and made to feel at home

We would definitely return as, although it is not cheap, it is great food and adds to Worcestershire's growing reputation as a food destination.
