Description: Village East restaurant in chic south London enclave Bermondsey Street is designed to call to mind a hip East Village establishment in Manhattan. It sprawls through a listed warehouse and glass-fronted apartment building and is decorated in polished concrete, rough wooden pillars, striking curved white chairs, and a wide open kitchen. Sit back and enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine while watching chefs hard at work creating the modern eclectic dishes that make up the Village East menu. In layman���s terms, this means European flavours and techniques are coupled with South East Asian influences, resulting in some intriguing combinations. We had our eye on the seared scallops and caramelised pork belly with carrot puree and teriyaki glaze; and the West Cork beef burger with sauteed foie gras, caramelised onion, jumbo gherkin and chips, but if you���re more in the mood for a steak, or fish and chips, there���s plenty of that on offer too.

“Stylish clientele but generally overrated”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Great setting for brunch but the portion size is small and it's not necessarily the hearty beginning to the day one would like.

“Great food, service and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

I walked in on a Wednesday evening with three friends and the place was buzzing. We were taken to a table around the back with a full view of their open kitchen which was good fun to watch! The service was prompt and really friendly and the food and wine absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend Village East.

“A good evening, delicious food, perhaps a little noisy”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Had dinner with a couple of friends on a Friday night. The restaurant was lively with a great atmosphere, perhaps a little noisy (I think we raised the average age by a few years!). After a drink waiting we were shown a table in a quieter area which helped conversation. We all went for one of the 'specials' - lemon sole sauteed in butter. Quite delicious. Service was fine. Would recommend.

“Top notch service & excellent Bloody Mary!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Sweet and super trendy little eatery on niche Bermondsey St., where the wait staff are right balance between cool and attentive. Great vibe and decor. Muffins under-toasted but Bloody Mary divine!
