Description: In October 2010, Aston Villa Football Club launched a new training restaurant concept, Restaurant VMF. Our restaurant offers a totally unique dining experience - award-winning food, with spectacular views of the Villa Park pitch. Set in the luxurious surroundings of the Directors Suite, relax in Restaurant VMF and sample our delicious menu, offering locally-sourced dishes which have been cooked and served by our VMF apprentices. In fact, some of the produce used travels from our very own allotment plot, just half a mile away from Villa Park. The allotment is another way the club works with the local community, with young people at the heart of this project. In conjunction with Roots and Renewal, young people grow the produce on an allotment which is now larger than a football pitch! Not only that, our own Aston Villa bees produce honey on the allotment site which is also used in our recipes within Restaurant VMF. In January 2015 Restaurant VMF was proud to be awarded a 2 star rating by the Sustainable Restaurant Association.

I've been here a number of times now, not just because I'm a Villa fan but the quality of the food is always excellent. The staff are also fantastic and the prices are very reasonable considering the quality of the ingredients that are locally sourced and grown on the club's allotment.

Based on previous trip advisor reviews we decided to take our friends out for Sunday Lunch and we were not disappointed. First of all may we say that as BCFC fans we have to say that Villa Park is one of the great stadiums of Europe and thank goodness that after a poor season they remain in the Premier League. The food and service we received was excellent and the restaurant reflects Premier League Status. The quality of the food was of a very high standard and could not be faulted. The rack of lamb in particular was cooked to perfection, Haddock Fishcake was delicious and New York Cheesecake was beautifully presented. As requested we were given a very nice table for 4 which over looked the football pitch and therefore provided a great location. One minor issue which may be looked at is the poor quality of the coffee served and also the price charged. Would you kindly pass on our thanks to all staff members for a memorable lunch. We have booked a return visit in 2 weeks !

Our friends' eldest is a Villa fan so this was a natural venue for a meal to celebrate his 21st birthday. Difficult to imagine a better Sunday lunch: an excellent choice of beautifully presented courses, both traditional and less so. The staff were organised, helpful, and keen to please. The venue is a bonus for football fans. Strongly recommended-I can't wait to return!

Every time we visit VMF we have a wonderful time & don't need to go into lengthy explanation of why it is so good.
The food is beautiful in both taste & presentation.
The staff are attentive & friendly.
The setting & atmosphere is excellent.
On this occasion we celebrated a special birthday & as the photo shows everyone made it even more special.
