River Cottage Farmhouse Dinner
Join us for an evening in the River Cottage Farmhouse for a dining experience unlike any other.
Come and have dinner in the famous River Cottage farmhouse where you will have seen Hugh cooking in the kitchen, plucking vegetables from the garden or entertaining his friends in the dining room.
As these dinners are strictly limited to 18 guests, they are an exclusive opportunity for you to come and enjoy the idyllic rural setting of River Cottage whilst being treated to a delicious four course feast prepared in the farmhouse kitchen.
Arrive at River Cottage: You will be met by members of the River Cottage Team before getting on the tractor and trailer for the journey down to the River Cottage Farmhouse.
Welcome & canapés: Your host for the evening will greet you with a seasonal welcome drink and canapés will be served.
Chef’s introduction: Once seated the chef will introduce the menu and talk about the dishes being served. You will learn about the food, our philosophy, its provenance and how it has been prepared.
The main event: You will enjoy further canapés at the table, before tucking into a four course menu made using the very best local and seasonal ingredients. The menu is decided on the day depending on what produce is at its very best. We do of course cater for any dietary requirements and you will be prompted to give us these when booking.
Petit fours and coffee: A wonderful evening is rounded off with coffee and petit fours. At this stage the tractor will be available to take you back to the car park when you are ready.
