Our food

All our food is prepared on site by our chefs. We source all our ingredients from high quality, local (where possible) producers.

We are currently serving tart and salad, baguettes, bacon / sausage sandwiches, snacks, sweet treats, hot and cold drinks.


Running a sustainable service lies at the heart of what we do. Locality is key here; all of our ingredients are fresh and everything is sourced from as nearby as possible. Meats like our sausages and bacon come from the award-winning Vicars Game who only offer the highest quality produce. Fish is also brought in on a daily basis and when in season a local grower provides fruit and vegetables like baby chard and heritage tomatoes.

This ethos extends further than the food we serve, as we offer space for local designers and makers to sell pottery, handmade jewellery and all manner of gift items. We also participate in the village’s food festival as well as their arts and music festival, which happen on alternate years. We also make sure we’re on hand to provide a much needed energy boost in the form of flapjacks at the finish line of the Goring 10K, helping to raise significant funds for the local primary school.

Pierreponts is available to hire for private evening parties, celebration weekend lunch parties or high tea. We cater for school parent group get-togethers, family birthdays, weddings, Christenings and just about any celebration you can imagine.
