"This was food so pretty, so distinctive, so charmingly served that I found myself more than tolerating the sous vide-ing of meat and fish (which I normally hate) and taking my hat off to smears and smudges, possibly because the food managed also to be piping hot and full of soul, two things that are usually lost in all the buggering about."

"Independents who flout trends and carry on their own merry, idiosyncratic ways deserve to be supported. When the food is as good as it is here, that’s no hardship whatsoever." READ REVIEW

"The cooking at Verru is nowhere near as good as places such as Pied à Terre or Maze, where Lesment has previously worked, but then prices - lthough far from cheap - are also much more modest." READ REVIEW
