Summary

“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.

Summary

“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!”

Summary

“Communal dining it might be”, but this purpose-built restaurant on the owners’ farm offers a “remarkable” experience, thanks to “imaginative” cooking using the “freshest of ingredients”; “if you arrive early, wander through the surrounding fields accompanied by an audio tour to bring it all to life”!
