You're so right, Bermondsey does sound like a rough 'em tough 'em, Cumbrian cheese, but it's also the location for hidden edible embellishments just shy of London Bridge. Invited down to try their range of rustic and thoughtful plates, I let Village East have absolutely all of me. The Venue Village…
Village East on Bermondsey Street, a stones throw from London Bridge, is a chic restaurant and bar modelled on the slick and modern establishments you find in its namesake in Manhattan.
Located in a listed warehouse and decked out with large oak tables, inviting lounging chairs and slick dark wooden floors, this London bar is perfect for impressing a date or conducting an important business meeting as style is firmly on both the food and drinks menu. With a European menu boasting blackened miso cod, and port braised short rib as well as Steamed Mussels, you won't leave Village East hungry. An impressive wine list awaits and delicious cocktails are served up in the bar.
Village East is a diverse space and has a number of options for events and private parties. The Lounge Bar is the largest space accommodating up to 40 seated guests and 80 standing. The Little Room seats 16 together and located downstairs, away from the hustle and bustle of the main restaurant, has its own private entrance. The cosy private dining room mimics design qualities of an old country house, ideal for festive banquets and kitted out with all the facilities you'll need from a meeting room.
