River Cottage Canteen, Axminster
The River Cottage Canteen is impressively busy on a cold and miserable February Monday lunchtime.
Food is locally sourced wherever possible so rabbit features a fair bit and spelt instead of rice. The menu changes daily to suit what ingredients are available each day.
Soft polenta with mushroom ragout, goats cheese and buttered greens was warming and delicious. We put puddings on hold as the office at home is feeling neglected, but they all sounded amazing. We would have gone for the ice cream sundae with salt caramel and 2 spoons.
