We were lucky enough to stumble across this truly amazing fish restaurant 20 mins before it closed its lunch service. I was with my wife and 2 kids (9 and 11). Beautifully accomodating, to put it simply this place knows how to cook fish and...More

I’m not sure where to begin in writing about Verveine. Should it be the cheerful atmosphere, the outstanding service, the aesthetic appearance of each dish, the layers of flavour that started at the beginning and didn’t stop until the end.... or even our own lovely...More

Visited for lunch and ordered the 6 course tasting menu, every dish was inventive, delicious and beautifully presented. Service was relaxed, informative, friendly and efficient. If you love food it is somewhere not to be missed.

We were stunned to find a restaurant of such amazing quality in such a small town. Had the tasting menu at lunchtime. I don’t think you could get better value for £31 anywhere. Each course was a delight and some unusual flavour combinations have given...More

Not too sure about Sundays but believe it is closed Mondays. Perhaps give them a call to double check. It is an amazing restaurant for a special occasion.
