River Cottage opens new canteen and deli

Published:  01 August, 2011

The River Cottage - originally set up by food writer Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on the Channel 4 TV series - is opening a new canteen and deli in Plymouth this October.

A six-figure investment will see the Grade I listed Brewhouse building, which is part of the historical Royal William Yard redevelopment scheme, transformed into a restaurant with a triple height ceiling and large outdoor terrace.

The Brewhouse is situated on the waterside facing Mount Edgcumbe and features views of The Tamar River.

Both the canteen and deli will offer seasonal, local, organic and wild food. It is anticipated up to 90% of the food would be sourced within a 50-mile radius of the city. The opening will create 25 new jobs.

"The best seasonal local produce is always at the heart of the River Cottage approach to cooking, and we are very much looking forward to celebrating and contributing to the vibrancy of the local food community in Plymouth," Fearnley-Whittingstall said.

"The city and region have a strong fishing and market garden heritage, and we have a great opportunity to source the best ingredients and create some fantastic food in a wonderful location. The whole team is seriously excited."
