I have been visiting this restaurant for many years now, just recently quite frequently, and I have always enjoyed the meal there. Consistency is the sign of a good chef in my opinion. Although the menu does not seem to change frequently there is always a good selection of 'specials' for the day. I recently had mushroom soup with ceps... More

Whilst staying in the area we looked this little place up in the good food guide. It is a strange old fashioned little place, emphasis on the word little. I quiet loved that part of it. It was the way good restaurants used to be, small, with proud chef owners. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, it was a specialist fish... More

This is a small, but atmospheric venue, but the service and food are fantastic. We really enjoyed ourselves, and I would recommend a visit. Expensive, but worth ever penny.

I have been to most of the higher tier restaurants in the greater Droitwich/Bromsgrove/Redditch/Worcester area and believe Venture In has the most sophisticated food in the region. The restaurant is a bit on the small and cozy side, so the service is very good, but not quite as sophisticated as you expect in London, and certainly Paris or New York.... More

This is a very small - but perfect - restaurant. There is a very calm atmosphere; the staff are extremely helpful and very professional. There was a short wait for the food but, as it is all freshly prepared, this is to be expected - and the delicious amuse bouche provided by the attentive staff were very welcome. The meals... More

My wife's birthday was the excuse to visit the Venture In for the first time in many years - and we left wondering why? OK it is not the cheapest place to eat, but it is certainly well worth the cost - particularly for a special treat. The food is wonderful - from the hors d'oeuvres to the petit fours.... More

Wow! Exceptional service and food to match! You walk in to a warm welcome and a civilised aperitif, then shown to your table. The food tasted very good and excellent wine to compliment. I had pigeon breast to start followed by skate which was sublime. I could wax lyrical for sometime, just go and find out for yourself!

I came here with my partner following recommendations and was not disappointed. I ordered black bream from the specials and we had three courses each and we were not disappointed. It is a cute little restaurant with a lovely ambience and excellent value for money. Give it a try!

We finally managed to visit the Venture In at a lunchtime after recommendations from friends and looking at the reviews. The service was excellent, very efficient, friendly and unobtrusive. The building is an old black and white and true the bar area is small or cosy if you prefer. The dining area is lovely with white table cloths - the... More

Visited here with some friends for lunch. There was a lovely open fire to cheer us and keep us warm. The menu was varied and original; enough to keep us mulling our decisions for a good while. The food was served quite promptly once we had made up our minds. For starter I had the best mushroom soup ever (served... More
