Easter Monday at River Cottage

from £55.00

Finish the Easter weekend on a high, with a day of family-friendly dining at River Cottage HQ.

Want to make the most of your bank holiday? Swap the leftover lamb and chocolate for a very special lunch at River Cottage, set against the stunning backdrop of the Devon countryside.

Our Easter Monday events are a family affair – so round up your loved ones and bring them along for a chance to relax, explore and enjoy two courses of delicious, seasonal food, fresh from the River Cottage kitchen. We’ll even do the washing up.

We welcome all ages to our lunch events, with £15 tickets for children under 12.

    You’ll be met at the top of the hill and transported to River Cottage HQ by tractor and trailer.

    We’ll greet you with a seasonal welcome drink and canapés to whet your appetite. You’ll have the chance to look around and soak up your idyllic surroundings.

    As you settle in, your chef will introduce the menu and tell you more about our philosophy, the food’s provenance and how the dishes have been prepared.

  • The main event

    You’ll be treated to two courses of fantastic local and seasonal produce, planned on the day to showcase the freshest and the best. We happily cater for any dietary requirements, which you’ll be asked to provide when booking.
