171-173 Bermondsey Street, London SE1 3UW
Another long standing and reliable Bermondsey Street favourite, this NYC style restaurant and bar ticks all the boxes for contemporary, cool and hip and can easily hold its own against any Manhattan east side establishment.
Apt for its location, this converted warehouse space is adorned with slickly designed quality oak tables, dark wooden floors and cosy booth seating. There’s lounge chairs, counter dining and a separate dining room & cocktail lounge to hang out in after trying out dishes from the easy to follow modern European menu, from Gourmet Cheeseburgers to Fish n Chips and all come in really reasonable portion sizes (a bit of a novelty these days!)
The impressive wine list won’t disappoint and the cocktails list at the bar is inspiring. Pop into Village East for lunch or dinner, choosing from a selection of fresh well sourced produce, classically cooked and innovatively presented.
Village East does what it says on the tin, offering good hearty food, a buzzy atmosphere and a cool urban vibe!
