New for 2018, we are delighted to be launching our Pop-up Dining evenings!
Imagine an open fire, straw bales, a fairy lit barn, beautifully laid tables and, of course, delicious food made with our own, organic ingredients and you have the perfect picture of dinner on the farm. Our Pop-Up Dining evenings are the culmination of our deeply help belief in ingredients produced to the highest standards, cooked with care and creativity and eaten with like-minded people who share our belief that good food sustains a good life!
Each evening begins with drinks and nibbles and then an opportunity to see a bit more of the farm and our livestock enjoying their free-range lives. We then return to the barn for a seasonal five course meal of mouth-watering organic food cooked just for you! All the food will be prepared in our own kitchen using meat and vegetables from the farm. Those ingredients we can’t supply ourselves will be carefully chosen from other local, organic producers who share our high standards of care and ethics in their production. The result will be fine food in a rustic style, bursting with seasonal flavours.
‘The food is out of this world- such attention to detail with heathy ingredients and great flavours.’
Dates & Menus
Each evening we will be creating a five-course set menu to delight you. We’d love you to be a part of this unique new experience so tell your friends, make up a party and join us for a fine time and fine food!

“Your farm is beautiful and your cooking and hospitality pure magic” – May diner
Saturday 7th July 2018 – Mid-summer – tonight’s menu celebrates the abundance of summer produce now bursting from the farm and garden: new potatoes, broad beans, salads, meat grazed on clover-rich pasture, gooseberries and rhubarb may fill your plates with sweet, light-filled flavours.
Saturday 11th August 2018 – High summer – lip smacking flavour for a summer’s evening. Tomatoes, Mediterranean herbs, grilled meats and summer fruits for summer puddings give us a bountiful selection making cooking a pure joy.
Saturday 8th September – Autumn – hedges bursting with hazelnuts, blackberries and crab apples provide this evenings inspiration. The veg garden will be full of potatoes, beetroot, beans and vibrant rainbow chard and meat from animals contentedly working their way through the autumn windfalls may make it onto the menu.
This evening will cost £45 per person to include welcome drinks and nibbles and the five course meal. Please bring your own wine, beer, cider or whatever your favourite tipple! We will keep it cool for you and won’t charge corkage.
