Saturday lunch

Take time out over the weekend to have a leisurely lunch at River Cottage.

Our Saturday Lunches are a family affair, set against the breathtaking backdrop of River Cottage HQ. Relax, explore your famous surroundings and enjoy a delicious lunch, fresh from the River Cottage kitchen.

This is a relaxed dining experience, 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 Saturday lunches 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?

* We will endeavour to allow for any dietary requirements you may have, just make sure you let us know when booking.
