If you are planning a Christmas get together for a group of work colleagues, friends or family then why not head to River Cottage HQ. We throw fabulous feasts for 10 to 64 people. Our eighteenth century threshing barn transforms into a beautiful, festive dining room, while the famous farmhouse offers a more intimate setting for smaller parties.

After a tractor journey down to the farm you will toast the festive season with a seasonal aperitif in front of our roaring log fire. You will then be served delicious home-made canapés before sitting down to a sumptuous seasonal feast with a glass of River Cottage elderflower bubbly. A three course Christmas lunch is £65.00pp and a 4 course Christmas dinner is £75.00pp.

If you’re a group of mad keen foodies, then why not take part in one of our cookery courses before your meal? There’s something for everyone, from Christmas bread and baking to festive wreath making. What better way to get into the spirit?
