We had a lovely evening at the Venture In in Ombersley. On arrival we were greeter by a roaring fire and relaxed on a sofa drinking a cool G&T whilst choosing our meals. There is a set price for three courses, including coffee and petis fours, so no worries abut choosing an expensive option. I had Chicken Liver parfait to start, my better half had what she described as "square sausage and poached egg', obviously the menu called it something different! Both were lovely.
This was followed... (read more)

The Venture Inn rewarded us with absolutely perfect food, interesting wine list, and a delighfully relaxing ambience in a snug little space inside a centuries-old building. First dined there while stranded in England during the great volcano scare of April, 2010 and immensely enjoyed the braised short rib -- a robust triumph; could not resist hosting a luncheon there on my next visit the following September, and was equally smitten by the light-as-a-feather Hake served under a potato crust...

Simply great - food was delicious and the wine list had some surprising touches.
Found it by complete accident and found this site looking for the details i missed on the night.
Very good indeed! (read more)

We have been back to Venture Inn, Ombersley, a few times now. The food is outstanding and the service is extremely friendly and welcoming.
The wine list provides an excellent and varied selection (I must recommend the Mudhouse Sauvingnon Blanc) and the handmade chocolates with your coffees at the end of the night are lovely touch. The owner let us take some back with us for the baby sitter. He even made a tin foil swan to carry them in....funny, but very kind and thoughtful.
The only... (read more)

It's been a while since we went here. We'd originally planned to eat at the Kings Arms but there wasn't anything on their menu I liked that day so we came a couple of buildings up the road to the Venture Inn and I ventured in! We had to wait on seats by the door with a drink. It was very reminiscent of a 1960's restaurant. I remember being taken to establishments like this when I was a child. I'm in my late forties now and I was pretty much the youngest person in there, apart from my... (read more)

Quality and variety of food excellent. Service excellent. Price very reasonable. Wine list provides a good choice. House wines excellent.
The Venture Inn is not flashy and pretentious. It's a pity there aren't more restaurants of this calibre in the UK. (read more)

A real breath of fresh, originally from Worcestershire, but now living London, the Venture Inn is everything a restaurant should be, owned by the chef, who actually cooks the food, the location is great, the set price menu is broad enough in choice to be interesting and the "Fish evenings" (every second Wednesday - I think) are wonderful. I've taken girlfriends, parents, mates and business associates and all have loved it. There are a lot of restaurants in London that could learn a great... (read more)

I live in London and this would be twice the price for half the culinary skills. Great for a quiet dinner for two. Good wine list. (read more)
