Village East on Urbanspoon

Square Meal

Village East is a sure bet when you want a good cocktail and good food south of the river Thames in London. We’ve been many many times and never has Village East disappointed.

Village East and The Garisson Public House have been a fixture of the dining scene in Bermondsey street long before it became a major culinary destination. Now that Bermondsey street houses some of the best restaurants in London, but both Village East and The Garisson Public House draw in large crowds, which is saying something about the level of cooking at both! While The Garisson Public House offers very good ‘chic-pub food’ Village East offers banging cocktails and modern English dishes in a ‘Manhatten Meat-Packing’ environment.


Village East: starter


The last time we were at Village East, we chose:

  • Quail and blood sausage on a skewer as a starter
  • Soft shell crab as a starter
  • Foie gras burger as a main
  • The bavette as a main
  • Chocolate fondant as dessert
  • Souffle as dessert


All the dishes at Village East were to our liking and I particularly enjoyed the Foie gras burger.  If you’re at Village East and feel like having steak, try the Chateaubriand. It’s one of the best Chateaubriands in London!

One other thing worth mentioning about Village East, are the cocktails: Village East offers some of the best cocktails in London and there are plenty of folks who just visit Village East for that reason.  The service at Village East is always good and the interior is very ‘Manhattan cool’.
