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 Confit Turkey Leg and Cheeseburger as well as Steamed Mussels and Fish n Chips, 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.

Village East - Restaurant Bar Review

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...

We had a group event, a retirement party, held in the little room. It was brilliant. Everyone was so helpful throughout the booking, and on the evening. The food was very very tasty and the wine was fine! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the,selves, especially the ambience of the room and our server was very efficient and extremely helpful. Thank you the whole team at Village East. Visited Village East on 2017-09-28

There was an initial mix up with the table - the one we had been given didn't have enough seats and wasn't big enough for our group of 10. It was resolved though and we had an alternative table. For such a large group, table service from the bar staff would have been appreciated especially given a 12.5% service charge was added to our drinks bill. Visited Village East on 2017-07-22

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Village East on Saturday. We'd booked the private room as part of the celebrations for my friends hen do, and it couldn't have been better. The food was fantastic and the staff went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. Huge thank you to Tom and Sinead for helping us organize everything!

From the moment we arrived at Village East, we were warmly welcomed and helped by every member of staff, who couldn't have done more to accommodate us. Our party to celebrate a hen do included a wheelchair user who was happily and easily assisted by the lovely staff. Each staff member went above and beyond with their attentiveness and enthusiasm; in particular our lovely waitress Barbara who was brilliant. We were able to decorate our private room exactly as we wished and had help from the staff to use the TV and sound system to make our evening perfect and entirely personalised to us. The food was extraordinary, so good and beautifully presented, and the same goes for the delicious cocktails. Village East was the perfect choice to celebrate such a special occasion, and every member of our party agreed that we can't wait to go back there again. Thank you so much to the whole team at Village East, it was just fantastic. Visited Village East on 2017-04-22

Food - Very Very good Staff - Friendly and helpful We did have the occasional tepid pint, and maybe slightly louder music downstairs would create a bit more atmosphere. But overall very enjoyable thank you :) Visited Village East on 2017-02-15

A fantastic evening in the ‘little room’ with a party of 10. It was a lovely setting with interesting, delicious and plentiful food. The service was attentive, efficient and good humoured throughout the night and made for a thoroughly enjoyable celebration. Well done. Visited Village East on 2017-02-10

The room and food was great but I would say we felt a little forgotten downstairs there in the private room. The button on the wall didn't seem to get the waiter's attention so we had to go upstairs every time we wanted to order. And the wifi did not work properly at all which was very frustrating as it was a working lunch. Visited Village East on 2017-02-05

I visited Village East with work colleagues. We were a large group of people and were seated in 3 different tables. Food was good and service was attentive although the tables were served at different times, meaning some people had to wait for the last table to finish before heading back to the office. the only cons was that we were seating near an open kitchen and the smoke from the grill kept coming towards us making the air a bit too thick and left the venue smelling of grilled meat. A massive thank you though to the receptionist Hannah who has helped me getting the party organised and was very professional throughout​. Thanks. Visited Village East on 2017-01-31

A group of 14 of us visited on a Saturday night, the whole experience from the initial booking to actually sitting down to eat was superb. We opted for the Feast Menu at £45 p/p which allowed everyone to try a bit of everything, the food and portion sizes were excellent. However it was the service that impressed us the most, our waiter was brilliant and very attentive. I would certainly recommend for large groups and I will definitely be returning in the near future.

Very disappointing customer service, including the Manager being very rude to me and some other guests in the party whilst we were ordering which was somewhat unexpected and unnecessary, the set menu which we were allowed to order from changing last minute from the menu which had been agreed on email previously without me being informed and the food taking over an hour to arrive after it had been ordered. Further to this, the booking process was very onerous and not customer friendly in the least, including me being left an answer phone message and being asked to call back within 4 minutes or risk losing my booking, very dissatisfactory and I certainly won't be returning.

Double dated with a couple of friends that we had not seen for a while. The food was marvelous! The staff were very helpful, as we had a member of our party who was gluten free and the waitress provided great info on the dishes for her. This was a complicated time for them - full of Christmas parties - but everyone was cheerful, attentive and sweet. There was a little complication near to the end with the bill, but the manager Michael was very professional and lovely and solved our issue swiftly and with grace (thank you very much for your help!). My five cents? Ask the waiters for their recommendation with the wine list - it is extensive and full of gems!! - Highly recommend :)

Had ourselves a really lovely night here. Have to say that the Gelato Sour is one of the best sour cocktails that i've had in London and the black garlic mayo with our baby squid was darn dreamy,thanks for a great night!

Friendly staff, great choice of food and drink but the thing that most impressed me about this place was the decor. So stylish, welcoming and full of charisma. Definitely got a real homely feel to it. A must visit.
