Product Details

Join us for Saturday Night at River Cottage for a dining experience unlike any other.

Our evening events are a celebration of the River Cottage ethos where the food, location and atmosphere take centre stage. You will be treated to delicious dishes from the River Cottage kitchen while enjoying the familiar surroundings from the River Cottage TV series.

Saturday nights are very popular with live music and a bottle of wine between two adding to the celebratory atmosphere.

Your Evening

You will be met by members of the River Cottage team before getting on the tractor and trailer for the journey down to River Cottage HQ.

Welcome & canapés:
Your host for the evening will greet you with a seasonal welcome drink and canapés will be served. You will have the opportunity to have a look around and soak up the atmosphere.

Lovely Experience
Rating: 0/5

Your review Last Saturday evening was a really enjoyable experience for my wife(her birthday) and I. Right from the start with the friendly welcome from your tractor driver followed up with the arrival drink(very nice, we bought a bottle) and tasty canapes to the introduction by the chef of what was to come - mouth watering. Every course was perfect. First time that we have had rabbit for may years but what we had was so tender and nothing like my memory of it. The staff were so friendly and attentive which put the seal on a lovely evening. Thank you - WE WILL BE BACK!!

Having visited a couple of times in the past, I knew what I was in for...however, my daughter and I were guests on the first Saturday night of business after the fire (it was a belated birthday treat for her), so I wasn't sure what to expect. However, I need not have worried...after the tractor ride, we were greeted with the traditional RC enthusiasm (and a glass of apple brandy!), before being shown to the new dining 'space'.....remarkable is the only way I can describe it...to think that this had all been organized in about 2 weeks was astonishing...and I think my fellow diners were in agreement if the noise level was any guide. As per usual, Gill and his team provided us with a superb four course meal ( RC charcuterie, followed by pollock, followed by lamb and ending with rhubarb...if you thought you weren't especially keen on rhubarb, as I did, this dish will change your mind), and the staff, as they always are, were friendly and knowledgeable. I'll be back long before the barn is rebuilt..!
