Call River Cottage Canteen & Deli Axminster to make a booking on:
As you might expect from a man who made his name living the life of a smallholder for TV, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s ‘store and canteen’ champions all things local. Walk through the shop selling locally reared meat and bread from the nearby bakery, and you come to a high-ceilinged dining room with simple wooden tables, an open kitchen you 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 and squid stew or crispy pig’s head salad (made with tongue, cheeks and even ears). Producers and growers are highlighted on the menu, and the wine list is also weighted towards English vineyards such as Camel Valley. Outside, there’s a patio and kitchen garden, which is regularly raided by the kitchen staff. It doesn’t get more local than that.
