Lovely atmosphere, very well organised. Waitress made an extra effort to swap tables for us. Owners have gone to great lengths to keep customers safe.

Great to be back at Venga. Always tasty food and lots of choice. The cocktails after our meal were fantastic and Olli couldn’t have been more helpful and clearly loves making them. And grateful for the guys lending us some umbrellas for our walk home! Looking forward to going again soon.

It was lovely to be back at Venga. Everything felt very safe and well thought out, without the measures taken being in your face or in any way spoiling the ambience. Although the tables being used were full, the place felt quiet and calm, and everyone was safely distanced. The food was gorgeous - we loved the new menu - and the service was great. Campbell is a charming host. We will be back very soon.

So lovely being back at Venga. We felt very safe on arrival and during our time here. Tables well spread out and our waitress was in a mask / visor. Service from the table meaning we didn't need to come into contact with anyone either. Can't comment on food as we only had a couple of drinks. We look forward to coming back!!

Venga have done a marvellous job working hard to provide as close to a proper high quality tapas bar/restaurant as is possible in Covid time. The welcome was as warm as ever and though the usual comforting hustle and bustle was inevitably missing, you still enjoyed the quirky ambience. The food was superb and the unusual circumstances don't seem to have restricted the wide choice of tapas much, if at all. We didn't eat in the covered garden but had a look- it looks really good and will hopefully enable the restaurant to continue comfortably into the autumn and winter. We will be back

We had a fantastic time in a great venue with fabulous service and was very impressed with all the measures which have been put in place for COVID-19. Just would prefer the smoking area to be at the front of the building as we were right next to it when eating our meal.

The food was very good and although service was ok just little things like no serving spoons and serviettes..having to ask for these..we should not have to do this and it seemed a big effort for staff to supply them!
