Winter Dining at River Cottage HQ



Give the cold season a warm welcome with a dining experience like no other at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage HQ, a beautiful 65 acre farm nestled in the Devon countryside.

Whilst most folk dread the transition in to winter, River Cottage looks forward to the possibilities that the new season's ingredients can offer. It might be cold and dark outside but the log fires will be burning in the yurt and farmhouse, where a friendly member of staff will melt away the chill with a complimentary winter warming drink and pre-dinner canapes.

The kitchen buzzes with creative energy as the diners gather in the beautiful barn where tables are set in banquet style, twinkling candles give an intimate atmosphere to the gathering. The River Cottage chefs will guide you through the seasonal courses divulging the provenance, techniques and ethos behind each dish.

After coffee and petit fours the tractor and trailer will deliver you back to the main entrance car park, leaving you glowing with satiated happiness. All of which makes an exceptional winter dining experience for foodie couples, friendly gatherings and family celebrations.
