Sustainably minded cooks dedicated to curating unique and unforgettable feasts over fire and cookery workshops in our woodland glen and cosy barn in South Nutfield, Surrey.

 

The Salt Box is a celebration of seasonal food and open-fire cookery through the coming together of people beneath the trees, creating delicious food from nature’s humble ingredients. We celebrate locally sourced and wild ingredients through our smorgasbord of courses and dining events, all in the great outdoors surrounded by crackling fires.

FEAST

 
Whether we’re nestled within a secret woodland or dining between the vines at a local vineyard, our feasts over fire showcase the very best of our doorstep produce, all enjoyed around our signature shared dining tables.

 

Our events always provide a warm welcome, a seasonal tipple and something mighty delicious from our flickering flames. Each feast is unique, with a set menu inspired by our nose-to-tail and root-to-fruit ethos as we strive to reconnect people with what’s on their plate.

 

From seasonal suppers to breakfast in the woods, lakeside picnics to teas in the trees, join us for a meal with a difference.

INSPIRE

 
Join us in the woods and return to nature and the source of our food, through traditional techniques, craft and woodlore. Learn the art of cooking with fire and smoke, cooking a seasonal feast to enjoy around our communal table.

 

We take children and adults alike on a journey to discover the immersive world of the great outdoors and encouraging a life in meaningful contact with nature. Find us beneath the trees surrounded by wisps of smoke and the crackle and pop of the fire, 365 days a year.

 

We offer weekend, one-day, half-day and evening courses for adults and families. Private tuition, corporate and group courses also available upon request.

REWILD

 

We aim to inspire both the young and the old into a more outdoor way of living, encourage our digital generation to turn back the clock to a more analogue way of being.

 

Connecting people with their inner wildness and the wonders of the great outdoors. Empowering people with the knowledge they need to live a wilder, healthier, happier life in tune with nature – sourcing ingredients from the natural larder with as little impact on the environment as possible.

Woodland Feast over Fire

Family Wild Things

Breakfast in the Woods

"We had a wonderful lunch. We were made to feel welcome right from the start, it felt really special. Gorgeous food and plenty of it. Loved the shared dining. Hope to attend another event with The Salt Box."

"We just wanted to say a huge thank you for our experience at your Family Wild Things event. The food was delicious, and it was wonderful to see the children enjoying a meal that they had prepared themselves - so proud of their creations. But most of all it was a rare opportunity for me to spend quality time with my daughter away from technology, work pressures and schoolwork. A special day that we will always remember. "

"My family had such a wonderful dose of autumn sunshine and golden leaves at the Salt Box’s outdoor breakfast. Beautiful food in a family friendly venue (you can’t get a more perfect venue for my two little scamps!). My 4-year old is already pestering me to book again!"

“My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the pasta making workshop. Beckie was great at encouraging my daughter and helping us with the kneading. It was just the right level and pace with Christian explaining everything brilliantly and we loved eating the food we had cooked at the end.”
