Take a break from Christmas entertaining, escape the leftover turkey and treat yourself to a Midwinter Feast at River Cottage during the festive period.
Set in 65 acres of glorious Devon countryside, an afternoon’s retreat at River Cottage HQ is the perfect antidote to Christmas mayhem. Take a peaceful winter stroll, cosy up in our beautifully restored barn and let our chefs spoil you with the very best local and seasonal produce.
We welcome children of all ages to our Midwinter Feasts at River Cottage, with £15 tickets for under-12s.
Are you coming with a group of 10 or more? Did you know we offer private dining packages?
11:00 - 15:00
Arrive at River Cottage
You’ll be met at the top of the hill and transported to River Cottage HQ by tractor and trailer.
Welcome and canapés
We’ll greet you with a drink, canapés and the chance to explore 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 vegetarians and 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 (if you still have room), before being whisked back up the hill by our tractor and trailer.
Please note: Hugh will not be attending this event.
