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.

    Greatly enjoyed by all. Loved the starter.

    Starters were ok, radicchio could have been prepared better and made more interesting.
    Beef was delicious, again vegetables disappointing. Puddings were plentiful and tasty, It would be nice to see more simple puddings like blackberry and apple crumble and a cheese board.
    We have been several times and overall disappointed compared to previous occasions.

    This was our second visit to the Riverford Field Kitchen and it didn't disappoint. The whole experience is so different to any other kind of dining. We had gone for dinner during the week last time and there were fewer people than this Saturday lunchtime when it was full. The place is abuzz with conversation and the food, well, it was as good as our first visit and full of wonderful tastes. My favourites were the raw butternut squash salad and the baked golden beetroot. And let's not mention the vast array of desserts to choose from. YUM!

    A really fun evening out. Great reception from staff when we arrived, knowable on the food and wine with a relaxed informal atmosphere.
    The food was exceptional with great variety our host was a very happy outgoing person who was a credit to Riverford.
    When it came to pud time, this was a very informal affair, the chefs tell everyone what's on offer and you can have your choice of a couple.
    You won't come away hungry and it's an environment where you are made to feel welcome and valued.
    Good food, good wine an enjoyable evening.

    Fabulous food, welcoming staff, a very enjoyable experience. One small downside was the volume of noise in the large open plan space. would happily return again though.
