Private Dining & Parties
We began our life at River Cottage HQ with a big opening party for our team and this has set the tone of our business ever since. We have thrown every type of party you can imagine from taking over the entire farm, to long table dining in the barn to intimate celebrations in the farmhouse. We can work with you to create the dinner or party of your dreams!
Our iconic 17th century farmhouse can accommodate up to 10 guests for dinner. We can seat up to 64 in our 18th century threshing barn with additional numbers in the summer if you use the adjoining decking. Private dining gives you exclusive use of your chosen space for the duration of your event.
Our dining events usually begin with welcome drinks and canapés, followed by three or five courses of delicious seasonal food, with each course being served with a paired drink. Your personal chef will start your feast with a short introduction explaining our philosophy, the food’s provenance and how the dishes have been prepared before you tuck in and enjoy.
Our event coordinator will work closely with you before the event to meet your bespoke requirements and your host for the day will ensure your group has an unforgettable experience.
"We had the most wonderful day, and I can’t thank everyone enough for making it so perfect. The food was superb, and I will be recommending private lunches at River Cottage to anyone who will listen,we absolutely loved it!"
