Product Reviews, Restaurant Reviews and Recipes: All GLUTEN FREE!
From the famed television Chef Hugh Fernley Whittingstall and located just three miles from the River Cottage Farm and HQ in Axminster, the Canteen offer diners a taste of his cooking flair and style. Walking into the restaurant in Axminster, I was surprised that the front area is more for regular walk-in customers with a large dinning room in a back area passing the partly open kitchens. Our waitress advised us that the building used to be a factory before they moved in and had (in a former life been a dance hall). It is a really interesting location as Axminster feels like a rather small village but make no mistake and book a table, as it’s a very popular eating venue.
The staff were well informed of food allergies and quickly able to identify which dishes were already GLUTEN FREE as well as suggest ones which could be adapted to manage my food allergies.
This was fresh and crisp with the lovely flavours of summer. (In the picture you can just see my Blueberry Gin & Tonic (homemade blueberry gin served with Fevertree tonic) which was beautiful.
A delightful and GLUTEN FREE meal which was full of the fresh flavours of summer and so tasty. Thank you Hugh.
