London Restaurant Festival
As part of the London Restaurant Festival, we’re teaming up with our local butcher and main meat supplier, O’Shea’s of Bermondsey, for an evening of meat-education and matched beers. Darragh O’Shea will talk the group through all the ins and outs of different cuts as well as what O’Shea’s is all about, and our GM James will be pairing our favourite local brews with each course.
It’s a big family-style affair on Wednesday 15th October with a whopping 5 different bovine dishes to get through – and a suet pudding too, for good measure. Have a look through the menu and email us to book your spot.
As a new introduction to the Village drinks repertoire, Jiri has rigged up one of our usual beer fonts with a keg of cocktail. Changing weekly with whatever’s in season, or whatever takes our fancy. We’ve been experimenting with a couple of gin-based variations to start – cucumber and thyme, strawberry and basil. Totally herbaceous.

Parties & private dining
The Little Room
Just because you can’t make it out to that lovely country house, doesn’t mean country house can’t come to you. Private dining for up to 14, sharing menus for every occasion and all those mod-con meeting facilities neatly hidden away.
LOUIS KAHN, THE POWER OF ARCHITECTURE
Monumental beyond modernist. Louis Kahn’s distinctive style of heavy buildings didn’t hide their weight, materials or assembly in his back-to-basics approach to designing dramatic buildings. Inspired by the ancient buildings of Italy, Greece and Egypt, he created monolithic beauty and powerful universal symbolism. He also got around a bit – fellowships and awards coming out of his ears and three kids by three different women.
This Design Museum exhibition is an expansive collections of his works with models, drawings, photographs, films and interviews in one of the most complete retrospective of Kahn’s career.
What’s the thinking behind blog ‘Weird Russia’? Covering an obscure amount of nonsensical Russian news like a bigger, colder, badder Buzzfeed it leaps nimbly from featuring poems written by Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the people of Crimea, to Craigslist personal ads from Yevgeny, Russia’s most eligible hitman bachelor, to videos of roadside rage (gun v. axe).
The ads around the page (Find True Love with Ukraine Woman Dynamic Response. Fast & Secure) only add to the absurdity of this website. Strangely addictive.
Though there are a couple of amusement parks featured, ‘playground’ is interpreted loosely in this curation of the ghostly and lonely from around the world. What’s a nice touch from many such collections are the detailed back stories which turn these relics into historical archives, with house prices, legends of ghosts and untimely deaths.
Artists are awesome, awesome people. Creativity runs out of them like rivers and these rivers flow into blogs like multi-disciplined visual arts platform Colossal, thereby creating waterfalls of immensely awesome creativity.
We can get happily lost for ages scrolling through its art, design and photography pages. The guys who curate Colossal leave the blurb brief and let the pictures and videos speak for themselves. We think they may have one of the best jobs in the world.
