I have a specific dietary requirement. Will you be able to accommodate me?

We cater for most dietary requirements including dairy-free, gluten-free, vegetarians & vegans but we ask that you inform us at the time of booking so that we can accommodate you. If you have a specific allergy or if your allergy is particularly severe we would always ask that you bring with you any inhalers/epi-pens or emergency equipment that you may require as although we will avoid particular allergens during preparation we cannot always guarantee cross-contamination where food is prepared in a kitchen which may contain said allergens.

During each event, we provide a guided tour in which a variety of foraged food is made available. It is within your own choice as to whether or not you wish to eat the food presented to you and you take liability for your own well being.

All foods discussed are either previously recorded as edible or have been eaten by the course leader. Consumption of wild foods can, however, cause an allergic reaction in certain individuals; we advise trying only small amounts of new wild foods on first consumption and there’s always the possibility of freak reaction which has no grounding or basis on the persons common bodily reactions to food. For example, people should avoid sorrel if they have known allergies any member of the Polygonaceae family. We and our associated practitioners take no liability on these occasions.

Although our guided foraged tour is taught by highly experienced & capable leaders, it is not intended that any instruction provided to you while on a tour will in any way qualify you to instruct any third party & no warranty is made to that effect. We hereby exclude any liability we may have to any third party in respect of any loss or damage suffered or incurred by that third party in its reliance on any skills taught by you on the basis of having attended any of our events.

A Quick Note About Corona – (COVID 19)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks you will have heard about the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). This has caused some anxiety amongst some guests particularly those who have booked onto upcoming feasts with us. In addition to complying with Public Health England Guidelines issued by the U.K. government, we have implemented our own measures to ensure our guests are kept safe. These measures address every part of our supply chain from our chefs to our suppliers. It is often said that operating a catering business in the middle of a forest can come with certain logistical challenges. COVID-19 provides a new challenge for us and one we are addressing fully.
