Make hay while the sun shines, with a warm welcome at River Cottage.
Long, hazy days deserve to be filled with good food, so gather your favourite people and savour the summer with a lazy lunch in our 17th century barn. You’ll enjoy three courses of River Cottage fare featuring the freshest summer produce, freshly picked from our garden, and there will be plenty of time to drink in the glorious countryside they sprang from. Take a stroll, explore the farm, then settle in for a taste of our sunniest food. Gorgeous.
We welcome children of all ages to our Summer 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?

Arrive at River Cottage
You’ll be met the top of the hill and transported to River Cottage HQ by tractor and trailer.
We’ll greet you with seasonal drinks, and the chance to get out in the sunshine (fingers crossed) to explore our 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 three 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.
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.
