More about Village Kitchen, London

Finding great food in Walthamstow is getting easier and easier as the area gives way to artisanal coffee places, sushi joints and a smattering of higher-end restaurants. Despite this wash of smart new eateries, however, the Village Kitchen on Orford Road has stood firm, offering some of the capital’s finest, affordably priced international dishes in a dining room which treads the line between chic and traditional. This blend of old and new is in evidence on the menu too, with a Saturday brunch menu offering perennially popular favourites like eggs benedict and salmon bagels sat alongside zeitgeisty morsels like avocado, bacon and poached egg and chorizo scrambled eggs.

For those that choose to visit London’s Village Kitchen, out east in Walthamstow, dinner is particular treat. Under the careful guidance of Spiros Ragavelas, the kitchen are spinning plates of classically prepared international dishes like pan seared pigeon breast, Thai fishcakes and tandoori chicken breast. For diners with a sweet tooth, the team do an excellent line in desserts, the summer fruit Eton mess is the kind of moreish treat that pairs nicely with a glass of white wine on a hot day while the cheese board is an excellent option in the winter. The Village Kitchen is open daily for dinner and for lunch Thursday and Friday and all day at the weekend.

This was a second visit and it didn’t fail to deliver friendly services, tasty food and great wine. Really worth a visit. Loved the sweets they offer with the bill, nice touch.

The Village Kitchen has been around in Walthamstow for years. Its a bit of a local institution if you like! That said, they haven't rested on their laurels and keep serving up delicious, varied and comforting food in pleasant surroundings. The chocolate bread and butter pudding is utterly delicious and a menu staple! On this visit I also had the duck liver pate which was really rich, and worked really well with the toasted homemade bread, I also had the lamb loin special which came with black garlic and cous cous - lovely! I don't think I know anyone who has had a bad experience at the Village Kitchen, we certainly haven't so I'll definitely recommend it.

We booked in via Quandoo for Sunday lunch. Village Kitchen was busy as usual but that didn't stop the staff from giving us a warm welcome and making us feel valued. I had the roast salmon with trimmings, husband had the roast chicken, knowing how generous the portions are we had deliberately skipped breakfast, but I had to reluctantly give up two roast potatoes to allow room for the Eton Mess which is an absolute favourite dessert. Other half chose the chocolate bread and butter pudding with custard which is a firm favourite. Chose a Pinot Noir to drink. Great value for money, this is and always will be one of our favourite restaurants.

We loved our Fri evening trip to The Village Kitchen. The waitress was super friendly and informed us about special's . She was attentive but without hovering! Which was lovely. We both had fish and my Hake was beautifully cooked . My girlfriends Sea Bass was lovely too...We sat at the table closest to the4 bar! Away from the hub-ub in the centre of the restaurant. If you want a pleasant evening with great food . Then I would definitely recommend a trip to VK. Simon and Anna

The Village Kitchen has a very comfortable ambiance with the service just about right, attentive when you needed something, discreetly absent when you didn't. The menu was interesting and varied, we had chicken livers and gnocchi as starters and partridge and rib eye steak as mains all excellently prepared. Possibly the only minus point was the feeling that they would have liked us to leave a little quicker possibly because of the next table reservation. Overall pretty good and would definitely come back again.

Another great evening out at Village Kitchen, food as always superb, great service and lovely staff. I bypassed starters having had a large lunch, partner had calamari which was delicious. He then had the plaice whilst I tried the red curry from the Specials. We both cleared our plates. I managed the Eton mess for dessert he declined anything from the dessert menu.

Another very good meal at Village Kitchen - a birthday treat from my brother. I note there is a 2 hour limit for parties of 2 and different limits for other party sizes; I don't like these one bit even if an economic reality, but thankfully not applied this time presumably as restaurant not totally full.
