Our Dietary Policy
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 very limited dietary requests at our experiences.
If you have specific needs please get in touch prior to booking your tickets to discuss with our team, at least 7 days before the event.
Where we are able to accommodate specific dietary needs, these must always have been communicated and approved prior to booking your tickets, and must be advised to our team no later than 7 days prior to the event.
Each of our menus are mindfully created, inspired by our nose-to-tail and root-to-fruit ethos as we strive to reconnect people with what’s on their plate. To fully appreciate our dishes, we kindly ask you not to specify your preferences or dislikes.
Due to our remote woodland kitchen, last-minute dietary requests on the event day cannot be accommodated.
If you have an allergy or intolerance, please note that all ingredients are handled in our woodland kitchen therefore it is impossible for us to guarantee that your dish will be 100% allergen-free.
For pregnant or lactating guests, detailed dietary information regarding the consumption of wild ingredients is provided below.
Consumption of Wild Foods when Pregnant
The Salt Box is centred on championing seasonal, local and wild ingredients, including foraged foods sourced from nature’s larder. If you are pregnant or lactating, as a general rule of thumb medical professionals advise to avoid trying anything new, in case of any adverse effects on you or your baby.
The advice on the consumption of wild foods during pregnancy is considerably varied and often less documented, therefore please note consumption is at your own risk and discretion.
Whilst wild ingredients are not listed specifically within the NHS guidelines, certain wild ingredients may contain potentially harmful compounds when consumed if pregnant (however, please note our research has shown that significant quantities would need to be consumed for any adverse effects). It’s worth noting that the same advice is provided for many common herbs, such as Rosemary – due to its uterine and menstrual flow stimulant effects.
We are not medical professionals, therefore a list of wild ingredients can be requested 5 days prior to the event if you wish to conduct your own research. Due to the nature of our menus, we are unable to provide alternatives at our events.
