Square Meal Review of River Cottage Canteen & Deli Axminster ?

As you might expect from a man who made his name living the life of a smallholder for TV, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s ‘store & canteen’ champions all things local. Walk through the shop selling locally reared meat & bread from the nearby bakery, & you come to a high-ceilinged dining room with simple wooden tables, an open kitchen & painted brick walls. Fearnley-Whittingstall doesn’t actually get his hands dirty at the stove, but the mop-haired celebrity does provide recipes for dishes such as crab, mussel & squid stew or crispy pig’s head salad (made with tongue, cheeks & even ears). Producers & growers are highlighted on the menu, & the wine list is also weighted towards English vineyards such as Camel Valley. Outside, there’s a patio & kitchen garden, which is regularly raided by the kitchen staff. It doesn’t get more local than that.
