Northfield opens evening eatery

Rare-breed meat specialist Northfield Farm of Cold Overton, Rutland, is opening its evening restaurant for the first time this Friday (May 20).

After Friday it will open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening.

The new, fully licensed restaurant – located in a converted farm building, close (but not too close!) to where the farm’s animals are reared – comes hot on the heels of the success of Northfield’s new Gastro Tea Room, which is open daily for lunch and bar snacks.

Head chef at Northfield Farm’s evening eatery is Matt Jones, who has cooked at Gidleigh Park, Bibendum and Quaglino’s. His brief is to cook simple, unfussy, wholesome food using local ingredients – including, of course, meat reared at Northfield Farm. This includes British Lop pork and Dexter beef.

The restaurant’s atmosphere will be relaxed and family friendly.

The concept of a farm restaurant serving food reared in fields nearby – cooked by a highly rated, experienced chef – is a wonderful one and great news for the area. Great Food will be sampling (and reviewing) as soon as time allows.

To book a table, call 01664 474 271.
