River Cottage support us through donations made from the kids menu in their Canteens to support our education work, helping to teach the next generation about marine conservation.
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Surfers Against Sewage, to support the fantastic work they are doing, specifically in their campaign against single-use plastics. We are right behind them in their efforts to lobby our Government to move towards a Deposit Returns Scheme, which we believe will make a dramatic impact on plastic waste in our seas.” – Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
River Cottage has given millions of TV viewers a taste for great cooking since 1998, when Hugh first brought his famous food ethos to Channel 4. Our hard-hitting campaigns have changed the eating habits of a nation and improved the welfare and sustainability of animals and fish.
These days River Cottage splits neatly into two. Our River Cottage HQ, found on the Devon and Dorset border, is home to everything we do and is the base for our Cookery and Chefs’ School, unique dining experiences and memorable events.
There are three Canteens, our award-winning restaurants and delis based in the South West where we combine our philosophy with the finest producers in Axminster, Bristol and – most recently – Winchester.
It’s our greatest delight to share our passion for food integrity and consumption of local, seasonal produce with tens of thousands of people every year.
