Offering an organic, natural dining experience in rural Devon countryside, The Riverford Field Kitchen serves honest British cuisine. Alongside a sought-after AA Rosette and praise from countless national food critics, a showering of awards comes courtesy of the Observer Food Monthly.

Serving up an award-winning selection dictated by the season’s finest produce, favourites at the Riverford restaurant include chicken with basil & lentils, or courgette, feta and mint-filled pastry. Dine at chunky country farmhouse tables, and enjoy an eclectic assortment of recipes, all dished out communal-style. Also renowned for its puddings, decadent Riverford Kitchen favourites include dark chocolate, almond and raspberry torte, zingy lemon tart, or seasonal poached fruit.

In warmer weather, look out onto lush farmland from the parasol-dotted al fresco terrace, and enjoy strolling through the site’s sprawling acres: the source of much of Riverford Field Kitchen’s produce.

In an unspoilt pocket of countryside, Riverford Field restaurant sits 11 minutes’ drive from central Totnes.

    Absolutely fabulous dining experience. Gorgeous location. Absolutely divine food and sooooo much of it. Everything lovely so difficult to choose favourite dishes but the curried cauliflower deep fried and served with mayonnaise was on the starter list, mmm mmm. Braised beef blade with dukka fell apart, so well cooked. Carrots and beets with whole grain mustard and sesame and chili roasted broccoli superb accompaniments. Six choices of sweets but you could have two if you wished. We had apple and frangipane tart, lemon mascarpone cheesecake, sticky toffee pudding and chocolate mousse cake. Absolutely stuffed!!! Staff wonderful, very friendly,service very efficient. Lovely, lovely experience. All worth the £23.50 per head. Cant wait to go again!

    As always the meal at Riverford Field Kitchen was outstanding. The ambience is friendly and welcoming and gives the feeling of sharing a superb home cooked meal with peaople who become friends in the space of a few minutes. The dishes are largely vegetarian but cooked with flavours and combinations that are unusual and delicious. My gluten intolerance was catered for without fuss and with a minimum of 'missing out'. We live a long way from the venue but always book for a meal en route to and from Cornwall or when staying in the Devon area.
