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. Read More
What we don’t offer.
We’re not a restaurant, at least, not in the traditional sense. We offer an authentic back to nature experience with the great food that a restaurant would serve but without the formality of four walls. Which means you will probably get muddy feet and occasionally get rained on (although we do have plenty of rain cover).
So if you’re looking for a formulaic office party we’re probably not for you.
What we do offer.
Each event brings with it an opportunity for members of your team to draw inspiration from their surroundings and rediscover their creativity. Team building & away days at Nomadic. are about getting away from the everyday stress of city life to enjoy the serenity, surroundings and sumptuous food that we offer within close commuting distance of London. Our events take place in an unspoiled and awe inspiring environment that opens up for creative meetings.
How We Work
Each event begins with a conversation where we outline your objectives so we can establish which of our packages are right for you. Our aim is always to exceed expectations working within the scope of what is required. No request is too unusual. Company branded cocktails, alphorn players, outdoor cinema, fire eaters. You name it.
Shrubs Wood house is a Grade II* Listed, privately owned, 6 bedroom art deco home with large formal gardens and a swimming pool which is available for private hire throughout the year (subject to owners availability). In addition we offer overnight camping accommodation catering to varying degrees of comfort.
Pick and choose from one of the four packages below or create a bespoke experience of your own. Please note each package is subject to availability.
Feast Over Fire
Our signature package includes a welcome cocktail, guided foraged tour of our hidden woodland & sumptuous meal cooked over fire in a magical woodland clearing by your own private chef and is suitable for up to 72 guests.
Wild Cocktail Masterclass
Join one of our expert resident mixologists on a guided tour of our woodland. Explore how to build cocktails using the wild ingredients that grow throughout the year before gathering in front of the roaring fire to toast marshmallows as the sun begins to set below the trees. Please note this can be included as an add on to our ‘feast over fire’ package or as a standalone and is suitable for up to 24 guests.
Open Fire Cooking Workshops
Teach your team the art of wood-fired cooking with one of our resident chefs during this interactive five hour workshop. Gather fallen wood from nearby trees to build your fire before venturing further afield to collect wild ingredients for your feast alongside our resident forager. Then prepare your meal in front of your colleagues with the help of our chef. Please note we operate with a maximum group size of 16 guests.
The Art of Plating
Master the art of plating alongside a Michelin standard chef or former Masterchef Winner during this exclusive tutorial for up to 24 guests.
