Embrace the seasons with an evening of fantastic food at River Cottage
No matter the season, the farm is the perfect place to celebrate and dine with family and friends. Our chefs make the most of the season’s produce, harvesting directly from the abundant walled kitchen garden and plundering the spoils of the polytunnels. They create a daily four course menu that incorporates the most delicious dishes from the homegrown and local ingredients available.
This long table feast is an ideal event to share with your family and friends, exploring the farm and enjoying views of the stunning Axe Valley. Once you are seated in the 18th century threshing barn, dinner is introduced by your chef for the evening before you eat, drink and relax, leaving with a happy summer memory to recall in the depths of winter.
We are internationally renowned for creating a constantly changing menu inspired by our SLOW ethos of ingredients that are Seasonal, Local, Organic and Wild: plants, meat and fish that have been foraged, grown, raised and caught either right here on the farm, or by nearby farmers, growers and artisans who share our passion for the finest provenance. Two of these organic growers, Trill Farm and Haye Farm, are our neighbours.
Are you coming with a group of 10 or more? Did you know we offer private dining packages?
