Courses / Shepherds Barn 5 course Picnic - From £...on application per head

Come join us for a very special 5 course picnic at HGC Shepherds barn in Sussex, set in a stunning location in the middle of the south downs for private groups of 6 people, our barn Garden is a perfect place to reconnect with friends- due to the social distancing measures that are currently in place, we can offer you the entire garden, firebowl and access to fire up your own playlist on our soundsystem.

We are running these limited edition sittings from July onwards, we are offering a sumptuous menu of different wild fare cooked over an open fire and served to you by a member of our team. We have based our menu on what is in season over the next two months, lots of wild, deer, fish, bunnies and pigeon as well as plenty of Veg. Please have a look at our menu options as to what you would like included in your picnic. There are plenty of wild ingredients throughout the menu- all meat is locally sourced from our respective gunny’s and others from sustainable trusted suppliers.

Unfortunately, we’re currently unable to cater for any dietary requirements, we also cannot offer any camping facilities either.

We will welcome you with a seasonal Wild cocktail, followed by your choice of dishes delivered in recyclable containers. We do ask that you attend with your own picnic blanket,  knives, forks, spoons, plates, bowls and glassware, do please bring your own beverages with you, we will supply 3 bottles of wine per group which will be paired with the menu you choose and we will certainly provide water as and when needed.

Due to current measures that are in place by the government you will not have any access to the barn or our toilet (there are plenty of places around us for wild wees). You will have the Barn garden for 4 hours for your sitting and all food will be provided for the duration of your stay: Choose your wild menu from our options here. Cost is £120/head. Currently we are only offering this as an option to private groups, which will be a total of £720.00
