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.

    All so good, especially the flavours of the dishes so special and so many dishes with so much food on thank you. Love the look of the place like the dried flowers hanging up, the service was brilliant thanks.

    We have been keen to try this restaurant for a while however we chose the wrong occasion - a young teenager's birthday. The shared platters, dining with strangers, good service was welcome however the portions were small and our daughter's palate was not sophisticated to enjoy kale cups with blue cheese or leek and egg. The vegetarian option was small (red pepper tart) and had a mouse-like quality that jarred with the pastry. Would we go again - probably not as it's such a lottery of what is on the set menu for my fussy family.

    Riverford Field Kitchen is a great eating experience with generous vegetable dishes of terrific imagination. The pork on this occasion beautifully cooked with perfect crackling. The signature sticky toffee pudding and custard only let down by being served on a cold dish. Shared tables means meeting like minded people who like good food without prevention.
