If you fancy a ramble around River Cottage, a tour of the garden and a delicious two course lunch straight from the farm, then our Garden Lunches are the perfect choice.
Our Garden Lunches are a relaxed dining experience, and having have explored the garden, you will be seated on one of two long trestle tables alongside your dining companions. There are no menus*, your chef will explain what is being served and a little bit about where the food came from and how it has been prepared. All you need to do is sit back and soak up the atmosphere.
We welcome children of all ages to our Garden Lunches, with £15 tickets for under-12s.
Are you coming with a group of 10 or more? Did you know we offer private dining packages?
Please note, that the walk to the farm is for those who are able to walk at a moderate pace, with varying gradients and uneven pathways. If you have a mobility issue please get in touch.
* We will endeavour to allow for any dietary requirements you may have, just make sure you let us know when booking.

Arrive at River Cottage and wander down to the farm
One of our gardener team will meet you and walk with you down to the farm, taking in the beautiful views across the valley, and give you a guided tour of the garden before you mosey on to lunch.
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 from the garden. We happily cater for any dietary requirements, which you’ll be asked to provide when booking.
Petits fours and coffee
After lunch you’ll unwind with coffee and petits fours, before being driven back up the hill by our tractor and trailer.
