Jodie Kidd showcases her cooking skills as she is supported by her beau Joseph Gates and son Indio, seven, during a segment at The Big Feastival

She opened her own country pub, the Halfmoon Inn, two years ago.

And Jodie Kidd offered guests at the The Big Feastival a taste of what her gastropub has to offer, as she took to the stage to show off her cooking skills on Saturday at  Alex James' farm in Kingham, Oxfordshire.

The former model, 40, was supported at the event by her partner Joseph Bates and her little boy Indio, seven, and posed for snaps with them after her segment.

Jodie donned a black chef's jacket with the pub's name embroidered on the breast and a pale pink apron, which she tied around her waist.

The racing driver swept her blonde tresses back into a chic ponytail, while displaying her natural beauty with light touches of make-up.

She accessorised with a selection of gold bangles and a pair of statement drop earrings, while also sporting an array of delicate rings.

Later as she spent time chilling out with her family, Jodie changed into a pretty read midi dress with a slight thigh slit, with a pair of metallic gold sandals.

Jodie bought the Halfmoon pub in 2017 with two friends and it has since undergone a complete seven-month renovation.

The pub itself, a Grade II Listed building in Kirdford, West Sussex, dates back to the 15th century.

Go wild for Jodie's leopard print dress by Boden

This summer animal print dresses have come in a plethora of shades from classic brown and yellow to monochrome and pink. But our favourite colourway here at Fashion Finder HQ has to be red!

It’s the shade that suits everyone so naturally, we’re always going to be drawn to it, which is exactly why Jodie Kidd’s leopard print dress caught our attention.  

The midi dress, which comes with a gathered waist, is crafted from a lightweight fabric that’s perfect for summer, and detailed with contrasting pink spots.  As Jodie proves, the dress is ideal for pairing with sandals for a casual everyday look, but the ‘Paloma’ dress will work equally well with heels.

In preparation for the opening, the gardens went under renovation in order to create a space for al fresco dining and will be kept pristine by an in-house gardener.

There was also a new kitchen garden installed where organic, home-grown vegetables are being made for a revised menu.  

New pumps were installed for punters and Jodie splashed on some impressive upgrades to the decor, like the sparkling new oak bar.

Jodie announced the news that she had purchased the pub in her local village in May 2017.

On the website, she set out her company ethos, writing: 'Our wish is to establish a home from home.

'Somewhere vibrant, welcoming and charming, where guests can enjoy exceptional British produce with international flavours inspired by my travels.' 

Her modelling career took her around the globe when she was first scouted by photographer Terry O'Neil on a beach in Barbados.

She has appeared in campaigns for Chanel, Ernesto Esposito, Fendissime, Ghost, Lagerfeld, Monsoon, and Motorola.
