“Incredibly tasty”, “healthy, hearty organic food” wins universal high praise for this “custom-built hangar” at the HQ of the organic veggie box company. The “wonderful meals”“not strictly vegetarian but giving full emphasis to the vegetables!” – are “served on large refectory tables”, “by informed and friendly staff”. “The formula works, and I continue to be impressed”.

This farm-based operation set in a barn “continues to delight with wonderful vegetables and salads accompanied by excellent meats”, with much of the produce sourced from the surrounding fields and served at communal tables.

“Wonderful meals with an emphasis on veg” (sourced from the farm) are what “make the Field Kitchen special”; chance plays a role – you eat what’s fresh and, given the “sociable setting” (communal tables, sharing platters etc) you have to “hope that your neighbours aren’t too greedy” – but results are typically “just fantastic!” A stroll around the farm completes the trip.

“You do take pot luck not only on the menu (which depends upon what is fresh on the farm) but also on the companions sharing your table”, yet it’s “worth a visit to Devon” to eat the “yummy” food at this purpose-built communal-dining venue – and in particular its “most inventive use of fresh organic veg”. “A walk around the farm in the drizzle is just what you need to round off your visit!”

"Food is served 'family style' at tables of about 8 people. We really enjoyed chatting to an american couple and a french family as well as a British woman. Delicious arthy food, meat option (roast lamb on occasion we went) and good choice of deserts."

Reviewed 11 months, 7 days ago

"An outstanding meal in the Devon countryside and an extraordinarily reasonable price. You get what you are given (although you can phone up in advance to warn them of particular dietary requirements) - and sit at long tables sharing bowls of deliciousness. It's the veg off the farm that the Field Kitchen excels at - simply prepared, but bringing out the best in seasonal produce. I could just keep coming back."
