‘Disappearing into a magical woodland setting sounds appealing enough. Throw in a four-course feast in a restaurant without walls, and you’ve got the ideal post-lockdown evening out.’
Our aim is to use food and nature to reconnect our guests with the world around them. Our restaurant without walls has no boundaries other than the stars and the sky. Food is a universal language and through it we aim to tell the story of our woodland through the dishes we serve you.
We began hosting our feasts in May 2018 as a natural alternative to the formulaic dining experience. We wanted to create something unique which our diners could relate to and feel part of. We found a vast clearing in our forest once filled with abandoned cars and located a craftsman to forge a huge table out of a fallen tree which our friends and family dined around. We invited a local chef who was also a passionate forager. He scoured the land for wild ingredients such as mustard garlic, wood sorrel and gorse and gathered fallen wood to cook over. Gazing up at the trees as the sun began to set and feeling a part of nature we each agreed was a magical experience.
Since then we have grown but our ethos has remained the same. We have been privileged to work alongside Master Chef Champions, Celebrated Food Writers & Award Winning Executive Chefs from some of London’s top restaurants and catered for some of Hollywoods biggest stars. But we still have a long way to go.
Nomadic is more than a restaurant without walls or boundaries. It is a new way of dining. One which embraces nature that we are each part of. One which explores our profound connection with the world around us and most importantly with each other.
About Our Feasts Over Fire
“So amazing and in a setting so beautiful it was like a dream.” – Felicity Spector
Come join us for an outdoor dining immersion in a remarkable woodland setting in Buckinghamshire within an hours commuting distance of London.
Both the exact location of the dinner and the menu is kept a secret.
Our menu changes according to the season based on the available produce we have growing on site as well as the chef we have cooking.
Come dine with us in an ancient forest clearing on a giant table carved out of a fallen birch tree surrounded by wild flora and fauna and roaming animals such as wild deer, rabbits and badgers.
Your experience begins in the middle of our woodland where you are greeted by your host as well as our executive chef.
Upon arrival you will receive a welcome drink crafted using some of the wild botanicals that grow on the land. This is followed by a guided tour of the estate by our resident forager where you will first visit our vegetable patch to pick out some of the seasonal ingredients that we grow on site for your meal before venturing further afield to gather other wild ingredients which grow in abundance. We will then use the branches and dead wood from the surrounding trees to cook your meal on an open flame in the middle of the woods. Your meal concludes with a fresh herbal tea picked from our herb patch.
