A wonderful day of filleting, cooking and eating! Learnt more, ate too much! Met other like minded people. Course is pricey but worth it though as you do learn so much. The day is packed ful, with a varied programme. Great location, with a chance to see the cottage. Great staff. Great day, thank you!

I booked a farmhouse dinner at River Cottage HQ. Initially, I was a bit confused at the calendar of events on their website. There are two events that sounds very similar, which I had trouble figuring out, but was very clear when we arrived to River Cottage. Both events provide rides on the tractor, start/end at the same time, and... More

Yesterday we had lunch at River Cottage - a lovely gift from our daughter and son-in-law. It was absolutely wonderful. The welcome was warm and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Our baby granddaughter was warmly welcomed too. The food was amazing and the chef, Andy, was brilliant. My food intolerances are quite restrictive but he creatively adapted all... More

We enjoyed every minute of the cheese course at River Cottage. Tom Calver made sure that we were busy the whole day. It was interesting and fun. The views from the workshop are amazing, not that you get much time to look during the course, but we did at lunch time, whilst eating a freshly prepared hot hearty meal. On... More

A day of Game cookery with the great Chefs at a River a Cottage. Friendly, informal, every minute contains another jewel and tips of the trade. A full day of prep, butchery, prep , eat..drink...prep cook..listen learn...practice..cook...did I say eat? And still plenty left over to take home. I will be back for more!

Just experience the full dining experience with my wife at River Cottage. Unique experience from the tractor ride to the yurt, sampling local produce and dining with complete strangers who become great friends for the evening. Lovely food, freshly prepared and dishes you wouldn't get anywhere else. Brilliant atmosphere, great food and happy memories created. I would fully recommend this... More

We have been going to the River Cottage open days for a few years, and each time there is more to see and do. Great for kids, including the tractor/trailer ride down to the site from the car park. Well. I think its exciting ! Tickets have to be pre-booked. There is no 'turn up and pay on the day'... More
