Victory Mansion: Stoke Newington’s New Kid on the Restaurant Block

Stoke Newington is one our fave places in the whole of London. It’s lively and has a great array of bars, restaurant and a bloody lovely park but it’s not hectic in the way central London is.


So on a chilled Friday evening we headed down to the newly opened Victory Mansion, a historical London inspired restaurant.

Our attentive waiter made sure we had drinks in our hands while browsing the menu, and how lovely the menu was. Charred leeks, confit egg yolks and roast potatoes galore.

All the dishes were designed for sharing which we totally loved. Totally the best way to dine as you can try everything!

Our first Victory Mansion taste was asparagus soldiers with confit egg yolks and parmesan, and what a first dish! The asparagus was tender and the yolk so beautifully seasoned. Wow mouth party time!


Next were braised & charred leeks, agave & chilli yoghurt and crispy quinoa. An awesomely textured dish.


Another vegetable-y dish was the red endive, sweet onions, goats cheese and Kalamata olive dish. Again a beautiful mix of textures and flavours.

Then along came the crispy roasted potatoes with lemon thyme salt and a deep a rich gravy, just drooltacular. I think I personally devoured most of these.

Decadent tomato bruschetta…


Another amazing option was the tempura chilli prawn sea bream with the most delightful tangy dip.

We tried two of the desserts to round of our meal: cookie dough madeleines and poached peach, custard and liquorice walnuts bowl. The peaches and custard were creamy and sweet but the madeleines were a little too much pastry although had a scrummy dough centre. I have to admit both dishes lacked the finesse of the mains.

Overall Victory Mansion is a super chilled vibe with jolly attentive staff. A lovely quirky addition to Stokeys growing restaurant repertoire. Definitely worth a visit.
