Housed in the old Royal William Victualling Yard , the Canteen feels historic and modern at the same time.
Dining at either of the River Cottage Canteens is always casual and comfortable, but with the sea views and ships passing outside the window, this location seems positively tranquil.
The decor is shabby chic, make do and mend, up-cycled.... you know what I mean. Take a look at the snug!
And on the menu today....
I had the ham in mustard cream with a mountain of mashed potatoes!
The open kitchen means you can watch the chef as he prepares your meal. I always find that fascinating. There is a deli counter if you don't have time to sit down to a meal or just want to take something tasty home for later.
Since we were making a day of it, we indulged our sweet tooth and had dessert. This was my creme brulee.
