Really looking forward to going here. Really nice inside, quirky. The menu is unusual and not much on it. My lamb dish was nice but not worth the price as I had one thick slice of lamb for £18 and potatoes were needed which were extra. My husband had the pork, again was nice but pricey. I've had nicer food... More

The parking was good, in a field on a hill, with a tractor trailer ride down to the farm and Fair. There were some interesting... More

Yet another good evening curtsy of the River Cottage crew . Wonderfully fresh food presented in a delightfully, different, delicious way. Service good will definitely be back again.

My wife enjoyed a throughly enjoyable day on the 4th July for 1st Anniversary where we enjoyed making a variety of foods/meals. First of all we tried making bread and whilst my wife made an excellent loaf whilst my effort was really poor and Joe(our Chef) said he felt bad but I really want to try it again. From there...

We spent a wonderful casual summer evening at this restaurant, being greeted with delicious drinks and a briefing in a lovely yurt. A positively delightful balmy evening with beautiful, fruit and vegetable, garden surroundings and excellent, enthusiastic staff. There was a great musical duo to entertain guests, and chef informed the guests all about the meal to be served. The... More

This was a present from our daughter and turned out to be a really great present. It's a good all round experience and very well presented by all the very enthusiastic staff who are all very passionate about the food they are growing and presenting.

Guests are asked to arrive at a specific time for the tractor ride down to the farm - which is fine, except that the numbers mean that several trips are required, with some people having to wait around 45 minutes. You are not permitted to walk down yourself, 'because you need to be checked in'. The sun was shining so... More

Visiting River Cottage cannot be compared to any other restaurant. It's an experience from beginning to end and thoroughly enjoyable. You get picked up from the car park by tractor and trailor, taken down the beautiful track towards the farm house. On arrival you are greeted with a drink and canopes. You are allowed to walk around the entire farm,... More
