We are an innovative, award-winning fish restaurant, with our own in-house specialist fishmongers, based in Milford-on-Sea, a vibrant village located in the south of The New Forest, just three miles west along the coast from Lymington, Hampshire.

At Verveine we believe food and eating out is about enjoyment. Our aim is to create superb food that is thoughtful, creative and most importantly tastes sublime, cooked and served by our knowledgeable and friendly team in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.

Chef/Patron David Wykes takes inspiration for his dishes from nostalgic experiences of a childhood growing up in the seaside town of Hastings, the best freshest ingredients from the land and sea and the limitless natural beauty of the local environment - the Solent's coastline and The New Forest.

This infinite source of creativity is combined with the knowledge and experience of working in both France and England. David's initial apprenticeship was served at the 5 Star Grand Hotel in both Jersey and Brighton. David then moved to Oxford where he worked at the Michelin Star and 3 AA Rosette kitchen in the Bath Place Hotel. From Oxford David moved to France where he worked his way up through the ranks of many Michelin Star French kitchens, including: restaurant L'Univers, Les Viviers, Auberge D'Azur, Restaurant Jules Albert, and the world famous Restaurant Chantecler at the Hotel Negresco in Nice.


David opened Verveine in 2010. In November 2015 Verveine entered the Times top 100 restaurant list at number 93 for the uk and 9th for the south west, the Tatler top 300 restaurants, placed in the top 1% of restaurants in the Hardens guide 2015, gained 2 AA rosettes and have been recommended in the Michelin guide for 3 years running. Verveine was also awarded best service, best seasonal menu and best restaurant in Hampshire and David won Hampshire chef of the year two years in a row.
