Taking Christmas anticipation to a whole new level, on 1st December 2015, Bermondsey-based restaurant and bar Village East will launch London’s first in-restaurant advent calendar. Handed out every day until 23rd December, gourmet prizes will include breakfast at Village East, dinner at The Riding House Café, a gift box from locally produced Jensen’s Gin, tickets to the Design Museum with dinner for two at Blueprint Café, a magnum of Prosecco and a cocktail marathon to be enjoyed with friends.

How it Works

All dinner guests will need to do, to be in with a chance of winning an advent treat, is to fill out the form issued with the menu upon arrival, then wait for the daily December 9pm draw. Once the lucky winner is announced, one of the Village East team will grab that day’s red or green envelope hanging from the restaurants giant wall of advent, and hand it over to be ripped open with glee.

To get sneak peak of the prizes on offer, follow Village East on Twitter and Instagram @VillageEastSE1 for full details of each day’s prize. If the surprise is half the fun, simply book a table for dinner at Village East throughout December. 

Prizes Galore

What else is there to win? Not only will Village East be giving away multiple meals, beer flights, cocktail marathons and bottles in their own restaurant – they have also called upon their friends and neighbours to donate too. Look out for guest prizes from Fatties Bakery, Jensen’s Gin, Design Museum and Blueprint Café, local breweries The Kernel and Anspatch & Hobday, O Shea’s butchers and sister restaurant, Riding House Café.
