The River Cottage Canteen and Deli showcases the very best the South West has to offer.
A two-minute diversion off the A35 between Dorchester and Exeter, our award-winning restaurant and deli celebrates our famous ethos about fine seasonal, locally-produced food.
I'll always have a soft spot for Axminster. Our open kitchen adds a bit of theatre to the dining experience, and what we do here ties in with what we do at River Cottage HQ, JUST THREE MILES UP THE ROAD.
