Description: In October 2010, Aston Villa Football Club launched a new training restaurant concept, Restaurant VMF. Our restaurant offers a totally unique dining experience - award-winning food, with spectacular views of the Villa Park pitch. Set in the luxurious surroundings of the Directors Suite, relax in Restaurant VMF and sample our delicious menu, offering locally-sourced dishes which have been cooked and served by our VMF apprentices. In fact, some of the produce used travels from our very own allotment plot, just half a mile away from Villa Park. The allotment is another way the club works with the local community, with young people at the heart of this project. In conjunction with Roots and Renewal, young people grow the produce on an allotment which is now larger than a football pitch! Not only that, our own Aston Villa bees produce honey on the allotment site which is also used in our recipes within Restaurant VMF. In January 2015 Restaurant VMF was proud to be awarded a 2 star rating by the Sustainable Restaurant Association.

We visited VMF last weekend and really enjoyed it. We have been several times before and will certainly be going again. The food is excellent, amazing value for money. Every course was delicious and the staff were fantastic. We also enjoyed the new cocktails.
The restaurant is a fantastic idea for giving young people an opportunity to gain experience and is something that deserves to be supported. Looking forward to our next visit!

Take time to look through the VMF web page to understand more about the concept and dining experience you'll receive.
As a villa fan I thoroughly enjoyed the experience from service to the quality of food served but would like to add that even non villa fans should give it ago, you'd be pleasantly surprised!

Even for someone who does not like football the amazing view of Villa Park we had from our dining table was impressive. On top of that the food was incredible - one of the best meals I have had in a long time. The staff were brilliant considering they are all training and we enjoyed their enthusiasm. Also £20 for a three course meal is very reasonable considering the quality of the food. Would highly recommend this place.
