English broadcaster, writer, journalist, and former Top Gear presenter turned farmer, Jeremy Clarkson, has opened the doors of his new Diddly Squat restaurant to the public.
The Clarkson’s Farm star made the announcement on social media on Friday, July 8th, 2022.
He explained that diners must pre-book by choosing either a standard dining, VIP dining, VIP Sunday dining or standard Sunday dining package.

According to a listing on OpenTable.co.uk, prices range from £49-69 per person, with a table of four only available.
Before making a booking, he says that diners should know it is “very” rustic, small and mostly outdoors.
He explained that ordering a beer or going to the lavatory is “not as easy” as in your local pub, and “we do not cater to the faddy”.
“We have done our best to keep you warm and dry, but this is England. On the upside, the view is enormous, and almost everything you eat was grown or reared on our farm, so it is fresh with minimal food miles.”
“There is no menu as such – we simply serve what is available that day. But worry not, your table will be given a selection of snacks and starters followed by a roast and a pudding.”
“Our bread, made with Hawkstone lager, is absolutely brilliant. We even have a tiny VIP room housed in an old shepherd’s hut.”
“This seats four (just), but it is dry and warmer than outside. We will even serve you a complimentary bottle of English sparkling wine.”
“Do not scoff. It is very good. This is a restaurant like no other. Apart from one, I went to in Croatia once. And which served me the best lunch I have ever had,” he concluded.
Jeremy Clarkson’s TV documentary series, Clarkson’s Farm, looks set to return to our screens in 2023.
He confirmed last month that “filming [for the next series] ends in mid-July, so it should be edited and ready to go in the early new year”.
