The long-awaited relaxation of restrictions is nearly upon us but the safety of our guests and team continues to be our top priority, so here at River Cottage we will be taking a cautious approach. We want ALL our guests to be able to visit free from worry so to help you feel safe we will be maintaining some precautions.
After Monday 19th July our teams will continue to wear masks in public areas, we will maintain our enhanced hygiene measures and we will keep the numbers of guests on events at the new reduced levels to enable social distancing and provide a more enjoyable, intimate experience. Although we are happy to say the rule of six is no more, if you wish to get together with a group of family and friends we'd love to see you!*
If you are visiting River Cottage in the coming weeks we kindly request that you wear a mask indoors**. This includes our cookery school courses, feasts and in our Axminster Kitchen (once seated at your table you are free to remove your mask).
The past year has been unlike anything any of us have ever experienced but what has made the challenges easier to bear has been the goodwill and support shown by everyone. We will not be enforcing our policy around wearing masks but we ask you to continue to show consideration to your fellow guests and as we navigate the next steps of this journey be mindful that while some people are making confident strides forwards others still feel the need for cautious small steps.
If you have a visit planned, we ask that if you have tested positive or someone you have been in close contact with has tested positive for Coronavirus, you contact us asap to rearrange your visit.
We look forward to welcoming you to River Cottage and providing you with unforgettable food experiences
See you soon,
The River Cottage Team
