Beers and Buns

Join us for a relaxed day in our woodland kitchen for beers and buns fuelled by our fires.

Event Details

Beers and Buns begins with a gentle meander up to our woodland glen. Along the way, we will gather a selection of wild ingredients, introducing you to the tasty morsels that nature’s larder has to offer.


Once up in our woodland glen and primed with a bucket of our favourite local beers and ciders, you will tame the flames and cook up a selection of sliders and hotdogs guided by our fire kitchen crew.


The session will be a fun but casual affair of classic fire fodder – but we won’t be cooking up any old burgers!


As always there will be a heavy focus on wild and foraged ingredients, incorporating as much British wild game into our buns as possible. Each bun will be adorned with homemade pickles, preserves and sauces. All made in house by us throughout the year to create a snapshot of the seasons. 


Although you will be cooking your own patties and dogs throughout the day, please note that all preparation will be done in advance by our kitchen team.

Customer Testimonials

“Our Salt Box experience was amazing! By far the best cookery course I have ever done. Beckie, Christian and the team were great and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for anything cooking related. I've already made use of the tips I picked up on the course...and their rubs are the best!"
Arby S.
“This course was everything we hoped for and so much more! The tips and tricks and skills that we learned over the day were fantastic and so informative, the food and coffee and tea were flowing throughout and it was fun and so interactive with Christian and Beckie and the team. If you're considering doing this then I urge you to go ahead and make that booking, you absolutely won't regret it. We will definitely be coming back to do more in the future and can't wait to try out our new skills at home!"
