I was really surprised to read the recent negative reviews. I have lived in the area for 2 years and The Village Kitchen has never disappointed. We left it late to book for New Years but staff were very accommodating. The lady I spoke to...More

I went to this restaurant many times, however my last experience was worst then any others in the past. I don't know why? Perhaps there was a change of kitchen management. I have rated three stars based on my last experience which wasn't so good.

Such a shame that the quality of food and service has slipped a little in the last year. It's still good, but no longer truly great. I hope they can bring back the spark of previous years because it has long been our favourite place...More
