“Good value and quality”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Verdo lounge in Wylde Green is a good local restaurant. We found the service very good and a good choice of food on the menu. Prices are reasonable and the quality of the meals was very reasonable. Some of the tables are a little unstable (beer mat under the legs) but that goes with the rustic style of the place. Tables outside for when the weather is good although they are close to a busy main road. Like the place overall and have been back again since the first visit.

“Great local bar”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

For a local bar it has very good atmosphere. It is a very busy pub and when busy it is hard to get a table so try and get there early.Food is average to good but the breakfast is really good, Staff are very friendly and we get on with them all. The bar has a rustic feel about it and we love that. There is a quiz on a Sunday night so if you want to take part get there early with a good team.

“Close but certainly no cigar”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We have driven past Verdo Lounge many times and thought it looked like a funky place to eat and have a few drinks so we tried it for lunch today. Menu sounded great and we were looking forward to a tasty lunch. Hero Burger at £8.95 and a Falafel Burger at the same price. Thats were it all went a bit wrong. The tables were very dirty and needed cleaning. The outside area was littered with fallen leaves, rubbish and and tab ends. The plants on the table needed watering and the dried up chewing gum removing from them - eeeeuuuwww. The cost of the food was mid range for a cafe bar and when the food arrived, it was well below par for the price paid. It certainly was not my idea of a Hero Burger, more like a Zero Burger. Falafel was as dry as a bone. All in all we were very disappointed. This place could be very good if it tried a bit harder - clean your tables, sweep up, water plants, serve up quality food - charge more for it if you have to but serve up quality. It surely isn't that hard is it? Sadly we won't be returning, despite the nice atmosphere. Close but certainly no cigar - although you may find a cigar butt on the floor.

“Breakfast treat”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is the place to come for a pre shopping breakfast on a Sunday morning. You can sit and watch the traffic and pedestrians going past whilst enjoying a superb breakfast bap and a hot latte (although it could have been hotter). The service is prompt, polite and efficient. The quiz on a Sunday evening is great also; even though we were embarrassingly last a couple of weeks ago! Extensive range of beers, wines, coffee, tea, food, cakes etc. I hope this place does really well - you deserve to.

“mixed messages”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Been many times - nice atmosphere and food is average to good. Bookings not taken for under 6 people so difficult to plan ahead if turning up and no tables free as I've seen customers turned away when this occurs. At the same time large family groups stay on with small children until very late some evenings. Think it needs to pick an audience and go for it. Trying to be all things to all people. Shame as with some thought could be excellent.
