It's safe to say that things are done a little differently at The Riverford Field Kitchen. There's no starters and no mains. Instead, they bring dishes to your table in one long flow – a set menu of six to eight dishes celebrating seasonal produce in all its glory. They also think great food tastes better when you enjoy it with other people, so guests will share tables with fellow diners. Uniquely, there is one sitting and the whole restaurant is served together at the same time, with generous platters of food to pass around and share.
Their chefs work with only the freshest ingredients, which means their menu changes daily depending on what is in abundance in the fields around them. Grass-reared meat and sustainable fish are on the menu but seasonal, organic veg is the star of every plate.
