Whether you’re looking to gain inspiration away from the office, do some much needed team building or boost staff morale, a bespoke event at River Cottage HQ will tick all of your boxes.


In the lead up to your event, an event coordinator will work closely with you to ensure that all of your requirements are met, and on the day your host will ensure your group has an unforgettable experience. Below is an example format of what we can offer, however we are happy to adapt any of our cookery courses if there is anything specific that you would like to cover.

"Our second visit to River Cottage and every bit as good as the first. Such an inspiring atmosphere, fascinating learning and the most delicious food.Just the best day – Thank you River Cottage HQ"
