The Verve Grill is conveniently close to Dover and the Channel Tunnel, making it the perfect place to stop off for a meal on your way to and from the continent. The Village chain of design-led hotels are located nationwide and the Maidstone branch provides an inexpensive yet stylish place for style-conscious holiday makers to eat, drink and be merry. The Verve Grill restaurant boasts a vibrant dining room decorated with dark wooden furniture and luxe chocolate brown and vanilla leather seating - a cross between expense-account chic and bonhomous brasserie, and star dishes include the steak, Gorgonzola and mushroom pizza, the roasted veggie lasagna and the lemon tart served with cream.
