Breakfast in the Woods

Join us beneath the trees for a
seasonally inspired woodland breakfast

Join us in the woods for a fantastic breakfast, cooked over an open fire, celebrating our region’s finest seasonal produce.

Kick off the morning with a brisk walk through the woods to our woodland glen, where you will find Christian and his host of breakfast favourites! 


Children and adults alike will delight in the snap, crackle and pop of the fires as you take that first sip of Surrey Hills Coffee or Cupsmith Tea. The Salt Box Breakfast in the Woods is one of our longest running events and really encapsulates our mission statement.


Our breakfasts guarantee a warm welcome, locally roasted coffee and a morning feast from our flickering flames, inspired by seasonal ingredients, locally sourced from the very best of Surrey and Sussex farmers and producers.


Our woodland glen is based on a beautiful private estate in South Nutfield, just outside of Redhill, a 30 minute direct train from London. We have a woodland shelter in the event of wet weather, but please do ensure to dress appropriately.


Expect to head home smelling of wood smoke, with plenty of food and fire in your bellies.

Our Food

Our menus are best suited for flexible, adventurous eaters with a strong focus on seasonally and locally inspired ingredients, including wild and foraged foods sourced from nature’s larder.


Due to the nature of our events and in order to uphold high-quality standards we are only able to accommodate limited dietary requests at our dining events and cookery courses. Our dining events are intimate affairs with small groups, centred around a set menu lovingly prepared in our remote woodland kitchen by our small kitchen team, therefore preparing a separate menu to cater for dietary needs is not always possible. 


At our Breakfast events, alongside our main menu we can cater for Vegetarians and Gluten Free individuals. These choices must be selected upon booking.
