River Cottage Kitchen & Deli, Axminister

Located in the heart of the historical town or Axminister is one of the River Cottage’s well known and popular restaurant. Serving delicious and carefully crafted dishes, all made with local and ethnically sourced ingredients, you can dine in style and with a good conscience.

Open all day long for breakfast, lunch and dinner, this friendly and welcoming restaurant has plenty for everyone to chow down on. From a variety of options, including child-friendly menus, gluten-free dishes and vegetarian and vegan options, this is the perfect spot to take the whole family to during your luxury getaway to Dorset.

In the morning, you can start your day right with a tempting choice of breakfasts from a good old traditional English to lighter options like poached eggs, granola, yogurt and roasted fruit. The à la carte menu is always changing to make the most of the seasonal produce, but you can expect a range of scrumptious nibbles like olives, hummus and breads. There are also a range of sharing boards including the popular River Cottage Charcuterie which offers organic chilli chicken wings, sticky pulled pork, grilled sourdough and much more. For a generous and delectable meal, take your pick from the sustainable fish, depending meat and seasonal veg menu – plus you can also enjoy the Veg Out tapas selection which includes some appetizing taster dishes which can be modified for any dietary requirement without ever compromising the heavenly taste River Cottage is known for. For those with a sweet tooth, be sure to try some of the River Cottage’s unique but utterly delicious desserts such as sticky parsnip and ginger pudding, orange and cardamom panna cotta or, our personal favourite, the chocolate and beetroot brownie. Of course, one cannot forget about the extensive cheese board options – yum!

If these tasty dishes spark your inner chef, be sure to stop by the deli and take your pick of the fresh, seasonal produce to create something special for your family back in your self-catering cottage.
