Gastronomic adventures with Sorn Dining

Discover the joy of heading out into nature to find and cook your food

Turn a simple picnic into something truly memorable

We’ve been very lucky this year to have the chance to get to know and collaborate with the inspirational founders of bespoke gourmet adventure company Sorn Dining, Declan Morrison and Sidney Hiscox.

From humble beginnings trading penny chews for chocolate bourbons in the school playground, the two lifelong friends bonded over a shared love of food and adventure – and so began Sorn. Inspired by their experience of summers growing up together on beautiful but wild West Hebridean Isle of Islay, the ethos behind Sorn is to champion the wonderful produce, producers and chefs found in the UK and further afield.

Whether helicoptering guests to remote, inaccessible islands or chartering a yacht to explore Scotland’s west coast, stopping at different islands along the way to dive for scallops, fish for salmon or forage the woods, Sorn’s not-so-little black book of contacts enable them to give their clients unrivalled access to some of the most interesting off-grid locations, private houses and chefs imaginable.

With the impact of Covid affecting many people’s decision as to where to eat out, holiday or organise family celebrations or gatherings with friends, the opportunity to explore some of the UK’s more far flung, remote areas has never been more appealing. Sorn has launched a new set of experiences this summer for people wishing to entertain at home, in their garden or in beautiful, wild locations. Entitled Sorn at Home, you can read more about this on their website at

New collaboration launching Autumn 2020

Savernake and Sorn have been working together this year on a very special project launching in early autumn. Be sure to follow us both on Instagram and if you haven’t done so already, sign up for our newsletter to be one of the first to receive news of our exciting collaboration. We can’t wait to share it with you.

“There is something so joyful about being in nature and feasting. It is something so few rarely experience these days. They might go for a picnic, bring out the crisps and sausage rolls but very few people are actually heading out and cooking in the wild. It is an activity we can’t promote enough. Nature and good food, they are two vital ingredients to a happy life.”
