Albury Vineyard Classic Cuvee Sparkling Wine (optional)

More than ever, we are all keen to reconnect with our family and friends – indulging in delicious food and drink in the great outdoors. After a leisurely walk from our barn through the beautiful meadows here on the Priory Farm Estate, we’ll guide you to a beautiful spot for a feast lakeside.

We’ll be celebrating the delights of the deep with a feast enjoyed by the lake on the Priory Farm Estate, in collaboration with Veasey & Sons Fishmongers Forest Row.


Prepared by our team from the finest locally and seasonally inspired produce, your picnic hamper will include a selection of delights celebrating the finest & freshest seafood and fish from British shores.


Enjoy a bottle of Albury Vineyard Classic Cuvee, our favourite local sparkling wine, whilst enjoying an al-fresco acoustic set by the very talented Rebecca Riedtmann and Tom Moth. Rebecca Riedtmann writes and plays enchanting Americana and soulful blues, performed with a smokey delivery.  She is joined by the unique harp playing of Tom Moth from the world-conquering Florence + The Machine. Together they combine to create an atmospheric duo performing a mix of familiar and original songs in their own magical style.


Once your picnics have been served, you are free to spend the evening with us in our tranquil setting, and when it is time to head home stroll back to the car park (gates close at 10:00pm).


We can’t wait to welcome you as you reunite with family and friends.

There are no vegetarian options available for this event.

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. 


Dietary needs must always have been communicated and approved prior to booking your seat at our table, and must be advised to our team no later than 7 days prior to the event so that our chef’s can make the necessary arrangements.
