The vegetables and puddings are the stars of the show. But, it all comes together to make a memorable meal: the atmosphere, the communal dining, the excellent service and the inventive, delicious food.

We are regular users of the vegetable delivery service, and hold it in such high esteem that we thought we’d try the Field Kitchen. In short, this really was one of the best meals that we’ve ever had! I’m not the worlds greatest veg fan...More

We visited Riverford Field Kitchen in January. A post-Christmas treat! Tucked away in the south hams hills this canteen-style eatery is worth a visit. Helpful staff, varied and well cooked food featuring lots of veg. A tad on the expensive side but a nice treat.

Visited for dinner in January with my husband. We quite enjoyed the share table and food with strangers but we didn’t like the long wait for drinks as only 3 waiting staff for a room of 80 people. Starter was plentiful and delicious main course...More
