Let's Meet at Village East

Reviewed by Ailsa Macfarlane, PR senior consultant, IncrediBull Ideas.

Situated near Borough Market foodie paradise, this recently opened sister of the uber-cool Garrison has a contemporary feel and is more spacious and airy than its older sibling.

The dining tables make for an interesting read: look closely and you will see that they are old school desks, some of which have been left with some very colourful inscriptions.

For anyone who loves fish and traditional food with a twist, this place has the perfect menu. Using only seasonal ingredients, the two-course lunch specials for £12 are surprisingly economical without compromising on the wow factor.

Their lounge area is a regular haunt of our design, events and PR teams. Its relaxed atmosphere and comfy brown-leather couches - not to mention the inspiring cocktails - help keep those creative juices flowing. Our talent agency also uses the lounge area for evening drinks with clients, as the place really revs up after 7pm.

Not a bad place to star-spot, either, because located opposite is Terminal Music Studio, where the likes of Keane and Muse record.

Whether you are looking to get noticed or simply want to relax and enjoy the atmosphere, I recommend you check it out.
