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.

We had a super night out - St George's Day special - with a very English menu. Everything was superb. Service was good from all the staff who explained every aspect of the meal and made us both very welcome. Good value considering the quality of the meal. Wine waiter really knew his stuff. If only the team that plays on the pitch outside could play with such excellence!

My girlfriend booked this as a surprise for my 23rd birthday last saturday night. All i can say is what a fantastic experience , the food was incredibly good quality and generous portions , the service was exemplary and the 360 degree views of the stadium from our table was stunning . Had to leave a £15 tip as we felt we had robbed the place getting such a fantastic 3 course meal for £25 a head , really really good value and the birthday candle on my cheese board was a lovely touch. All round a very special experience a must for all Villa Fans or Foodies.

We recently visited VMF to celebrate my fathers 80th birthday. The restaurant is stylishly decorated and staffed by very enthusiastic young people.

It is only open on Fri/Sat nights and Sun lunch and has a set menu priced at £24.95 in the evening and £22.50 on Sunday.

There were around 6/7 choices of starter, mains and pudding. The quality of the food was very good overall - the curry was well received, steak well cooked, pork was excellent although the braised beef was a little dry. The only real criticism I'd make isthat the amount of vegetables and potatoes were not quite enough for 5 people.

Puddings were the highlight of the meal.

For the quality of the food, and the location being spectacular for football fans, I'd definitely recommend trying VMF

Having read the reviews on trip advisor we decided to give it a try and we was not disappointed. The service from all the staff is superb and the food is amazing. This is probably the best value restaurant in Birmingham.
