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 each month based on the available produce we have growing on site.
Come dine with us in the middle of a stunning woodland glade on a large table carved out of a birch tree surrounded by ancient forestry, wild flora and fauna and roaming animals such as wild deer, rabbits and badgers.
Your experience begins when you are transported to the middle of our woodland where you are met 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 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 birch, beech and oak trees to cook the meal on an open flame in the middle of the woods. Your meal concludes with a fresh herbal tea picked from our herb patch.
In addition to our public events we also offer private dining for groups looking to celebrate special occasions such as weddings, anniversary’s, hen do’s, engagements, birthdays, bar mitzvahs & corporate away days and can tailor a bespoke menu package with one of our world class chefs based on your exacting needs. In addition we can provide live music, a wild cocktail bar with a bespoke menu curated by our resident mixologist using the botanicals we have growing around the site and even live fireworks if required.
To date Nomadic. have worked alongside leading professionals across the industry ranging from Master Chef Champions, Celebrated Writers & Award Winning Executive Chefs from some of London’s top restaurants and catered for some of Hollywoods biggest stars.
