Soho Farmhouse Food Festival 2023

Soho Farmhouse Food Festival 2023 | Soho House

Discover our line-up of legendary chefs, in-demand restaurants and revered culinary institutions at our Oxfordshire retreat, in partnership with HexClad

Friday 11 August 2023   By Soho House

The ultimate food experience returns for the fifth year, and this time we’re taking over Soho Farmhouse for two days. With an impressive line-up of more than 30 chefs, including Matt Abé (Restaurant Gordon Ramsay), Skye Gyngell (Spring), Asma Khan (Darjeeling Express), Henry Harris (Bouchon Racine), plus many more culinary pioneers, they’ll be cooking dishes for guests to sample across the site. They’ll also be creating one-off bookable lunches and dinners, hosting interactive experiences, and providing live demonstrations. Of course, no Soho House event would be complete without a party, so there’ll also be drinks for everyone to enjoy into the night. 
Over the weekend, there will be some events that members will need to book in advance, including lunches, dinners and demonstrations. But there’ll also be plenty of experiences to enjoy by just showing up on each day. 

Please let us know if you wish to attend the day by signing up below.
