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.

    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.

    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.
