the salt box

Sustainably minded cooks dedicated to curating unique feasts over fire and cookery workshops 

based in our woodland glen or cosy barn
on the priory farm estate in South Nutfield, Surrey

The Salt Box is a celebration of seasonal food and open-fire cookery through the coming together of people beneath the trees, creating delicious food from nature’s humble ingredients. We celebrate locally sourced and wild ingredients through our wide range of courses and dining events, in the great outdoors surrounded by crackling fires.

Thank you to Beckie, Christian and the rest of The Salt Box team for our Sunday lunch yesterday. It's the first Salt Box event we've been to and we had a great time. Delicious food, beautiful setting and really welcoming team. We will definitely be back for another event!
We had a wonderful meal. We were made to feel welcome right from the start, it felt really special. Gorgeous food and plenty of it. Loved the shared dining.
Hope to attend another event with The Salt Box.
