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

Ten of us met for my husband's birthday treat. The tractor ride from the car park is extremely rough but you get a lovely view of the countryside and RCHQ in the valley. It started with a welcome drink and some nibbles in the yurt. Then we had about an hour to wander freely around the buildings and gardens. The... More

We made our own pizza bases and topped them for lunch while Andy cooked the in the wood fired oven. Had a go at sourdough,... More

Leant quite a bit but a long day standing teacher was excellent and very clear and concise with Her delivery. Lunch was delicious and filling.

A brilliant day spent building a clay oven to bake pizza and bread. We also made our own bread while the clay was drying...and made our pizza lunch which we baked in a 17th century wood fired oven. The chef was very nice and the staff very friendly. Worth the cost.
