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.
