Forage & Feast events on the Jurassic coast

We love where we are. Our sea and our shore is a place of absolute beauty and bounty.

As the season change from spring to summer, autumn to winter we celebrate with our wild food events where we host a shared table at a secluded beach hideaway that we call home to feast on what we had foraged and sourced within toe-dipping distance.

Our Forage & Feast events are a night where the connection between the great outdoors and our plate is made abundantly clear and where the skills needed to enjoy natures larder, in our place of beauty and bounty, are explored. 

The idea behind these evenings is to engage our guests with everything the great outdoors has to offer, not just in sustainable, fresh, wild, good food but in a heart warming and handcrafted environment that makes enjoying our creations all the better!

This year we have some super talent on board the Fore wagon and you can bet that our guest chefs and wild cocktail wizards are going to make sure the evenings sing to a very high tune with some added Fore / Adventure bite of course.

Tickets for these special events don't hang about so do grab them whilst they're there. We still have a few seats left at our Spring event on May 6th with James Fowler from The Larder House so get your name on the list folks. Join us to celebrate Spring and the bounty of food it provides natures larder. We will be celebrating all the good things this season brings us, warmer climes, starry skies and beautiful fresh produce and wild green goodness. We would love you to join our shared table and enjoy another hand crafted event by our talented team and guest chefs who put their heart and soul into making these evenings so unique and special for all the senses, with a few surprises thrown in for good measure!

*The tickets include a 3 course meal, wild cocktails and wine with the meal. A foraging walk and demos on the evening.

Our location

Under a starry sky, beneath canvas or in one of our secret hideaways by the sea you won't be dissapointed in the setting of these events, all beautifully styled and handcrafted by our clever team.  The location is always near to our base in Studland but we often have to wait on the weather before we confirm exact locations, which makes it all the more exciting! Have a look at our past events above to see what's in store.
