River Cottage has given millions of TV viewers a taste for great cooking since 1998, when Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstal first brought his famous food ethos to Channel 4. Their hard-hitting campaigns have changed the eating habits of a nation and improved the welfare and sustainability of animals and fish.
At River Cottage it’s in their nature to source the very best ingredients: seasonal, local, organic and wild. Their menus showcase the very best produce available from the surrounding area. Everything is prepared freshly on the premises by their fantastic team of Chefs who work closely with Hugh and Development Chef Ben Bulger.
All their meat is sourced from local farms that produce free range or organic meat to the highest welfare standards.
Fish and shellfish come from West Country day boats and other sustainable sources in the South West. If fish choices are sometimes limited it is because River Cottage are rigorous in only choosing what they believe to be sustainable.
Most of the vegetables and fruit are grown within 50 miles of their restaurants.
We were delighted to welcome back River Cottage to host our restaurant at Grand Designs Live ExCeL. They were showcasing their passion with a seasonal feast of dishes for you to try.
