Riverside restaurant was not available when I was on holiday in the area so I went to the Riverside canteen in Axminster that is owned by Hugh instead. It was delicious. I only had a light lunch of asparagus spears and my husband had pork belly squares light lunch but I must say it was gorgeous tasted so fresh and looked amazing. We also shared a panacotta dessert which was so creamy and just melted in the mouth. I did not have a reservation and managed to get in so a reservation is not required but then might be ideal to just in case especially if high season. You can also buy Hughs cook books there and other products from local farmers etc. There is also a deli area so you can purchase olives and cheese if you like. A very spacious country style area (chunky wooden tables) and a great atmosphere. Staff where very friendly. There is a car park outside but only allowed to park there for an hour. Would recommend to anyone that loves food, freshness and celebrity chefs or even Hugh himself.
