Event description


A Celebration of Summer Bounty from Field, Forest and Fire

Sorn is delighted to present A Celebration of Summer Bounty from Field, Forest and Fire, a revelrous summer lunch presented in collaboration with Roth Bar & Grill. Roth Bar & Grill are taking their team and equipment on the road and bringing their expertise in fire cooking and seasonal produce to the woods of Wiltshire.

The feast will be held in a beautiful location in the woods of the Fonthill Estate, near Tisbury, overlooking the Fonthill Lake. Guests will witness the theatre of outdoor fire cooking, be able to indulge in summer drinks while bathed in nature and enjoy a seated banquet that will continue long into the afternoon.

The lunch will be a celebration of seasonal and ethically sourced produce that will all be local to Wiltshire and Somerset, coming from Roth Bar & Grill’s Durslade Farm and Kitchen Garden as well as produce foraged directly from Fonthill Estate.

The feast will take place in Quarry wood, on a lawn overlooking the Fonthill Lake. This private woodland was once a favourite picnic spot of the great William Beckford and guests will see the magnificent stone landing stage used by his boatmen for ferrying guests across the lake for summer lunches.

The long tables will offer views of the lake and the chefs working the fires in front of the grottos, also built by Beckford. The afternoon will be a fabulous opportunity to enjoy an otherwise inaccessible location, surrounded by summer foliage, wildlife and full of history.

Roth Bar & Grill

Based at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Roth Bar & Grill combines gastronomy with contemporary art and is a vibrant, informal and convivial eating-place, serving honest, simple and seasonal food.

The restaurant, led by husband and wife team Steve and Jules Horrell, works closely with local farmers, gamekeepers and gardeners, to use ethical British produce with a focus on sustainability.

Their talented team are masters of cooking over fire and in 2019 they have launched Roth on the Road taking the food, fire, styling and service that they offer at the restaurant, out on the road.
