Pennard Hill, a family-run farm with luxury accommodation on the outskirts of Glastonbury, will fling open the doors to its brand new feasting barn with a line-up of seasonal suppers this autumn and winter
There’s something soul-nourishingly special about gathering with friends or family to dine in a beautiful natural setting, yet venues that continue to host back-to-nature feasting events throughout the cooler months are few and far between. Therefore, we’re thrilled to inform you about Pennard Hill Farm’s new feasting barn in the wilds of Somerset.
The family-run farm has operated as a popular wedding venue and self-catering holiday destination for years thanks to its collection of glamping tents and cottages overlooking the idyllic Mendip Hills, but the introduction of a rustic feasting barn has also made it a must-visit destination for foodies.
Sustainably focused chef Tom Godber-Ford Moore leads Pennard Hill Kitchen. He uses the abundant fresh produce grown and reared on the farm to springboard his menus, and favours cooking over flame to unlock a vast array of flavours from the just-picked ingredients.
At the first event on October 21, guests can expect to indulge in an autumnal feast of game and “wild” food handpicked by Tom. Menu highlights include the likes of rabbit croquette with fermented wild garlic; wild fennel focaccia; wood-roasted grouse with whortleberry and cobnut; and toothsome puds such as fig leaf pannacotta with Tuscan oil and burnt fig leaf salt.
Don’t kick yourself if you can’t make the first event as another autumn feast – centered around wood-roasted pork – will follow on November 11. There will also be two more unmissable suppers taking place before the new year, on December 2 and 9.
Feasts cost £50 per person and include a welcome drink. There’s also the option to prolong the experience (and make the most of the handpicked wine list) by booking an overnight stay in one of the picture-perfect cottages.
