Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall flagship restaurant in Plymouth suddenly closes

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's flagship restaurant, River Cottage Canteen and Deli in Plymouth has closed its doors after six years trading in the city.

The company stated that it hopes to offer staff from the Royal William Yard venue positions in the brand's other branches, which are situated in Axminister, Bristol and Winchester.

A spokesperson for River Cottage said, 'We have taken the difficult decision to close our Plymouth Canteen after six years of trading in the great city.

'We have struggled with the site throughout and following the arrival of Rory Marthinusen, our new MD of River Cottage Canteen, we are focused on consolidation and growth in other areas.

'We are embarking on a new stage of the business including development at HQ and a collaboration with the renowned caterers Levy.'
