FOOD COOKED FROM THE HEARTH AND SOUL

We offer private catering for a range of occasions whether it be an intimate gathering, a Birthday celebration, a corporate dinner or just a big old knees up with your family and friends just for the hell of it.

 

Whether we’re nestled within our woodland glen or dining in our cosy barn, our feasts over fire showcase the very best of our doorstep produce, all enjoyed around our signature shared dining tables here on the Priory Farm Estate in South Nutfield.

 

Our menus are seasonally and locally inspired, created from nature’s humble ingredients and cooked over an open-fire in our kitchen beneath the trees.

 

We’re strong advocates of the shared dining experience, so at all of our events you’ll be seated with your family and friends on sharing tables. To encourage conviviality, a number of the dishes are often designed for sharing and will be put in the centre of your tables for you all to enjoy.

 

We encourage all those interested in hosting a celebration with us, to join us at one of our public dining events, to give you an idea of our venue,  dining-style and event format.

 

We specialise in creative unique experiences for small groups, therefore catering for weddings or groups of over 50 guests just isn’t our cup of tea. Our minimum guest number is 8. 

The Salt Box brings you a relaxed farm to table feasting experience, cooked over an open fire.

Customer Testimonials from private catering events

Was invited to a woodland feast for my dear friend's 40th last year and, well... it was simply outstanding! Everything about it was beautiful. These guys really are at the top of their game. If you are thinking of having them as your caterers, don't hesitate, they are unique, professional and most importantly they make your event something every guest will never forget.

PRIVATE DINNER
The Salt Box catered a private dinner for us at our home and it was amazing! The food was delicious and the cooking format meant it was also quite a spectacle and a real talking point. Thank you for a great evening!

PRIVATE DINNER
The Salt Box prepared and served dinner for 19 people to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. Food was locally sourced and cooked over an open fire. It was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Beckie and Christian were very professional and friendly and I would recommend them to anyone as they helped make an amazing weekend really special.

PRIVATE BIRTHDAY FEAST
We had a great evening with our team - we all thoroughly enjoyed it! Wonderful to go foraging in the afternoon and then enjoy the foraged ingredients in a stupendous meal in the woods cooked by Christian and Beckie on the impressive fire pit. Such a great occasion! Thank you!
