Lockdown takeout: Tytherleigh Arms, Axminster

February’s baltic weather demands a delicious home-dining experience from Tytherleigh Arms in Axminster

The lowdown

We’ve found the perfect antidote to the cold-weather blues in the form of a comforting takeout feast prepared by Tytherleigh Arms in Axminster. The hidden gem on the Devon/Dorset border is providing locals with an exquisite home-dining experience which will be available for collection every Saturday night during lockdown.


Tytherleigh’s takeout is available for Saturday collection between 5.30pm-7.30pm. Orders must be placed via email by 5pm on Friday for the Saturday night takeout. It’s a takeaway drive-through service, so once you’re in the restaurant’s car park you’ll be greeted by a member of staff (at a safe distance) so you can collect your food.

Why Tytherleigh Arms?

This former coaching inn has provided food, drink and hostelry for people passing through the south coast’s glorious stretch of countryside for around 500 years. Today, the team at Tytherleigh Arms continue to honour its heritage with a menu of modern British cooking, a well-stocked bar and collection of cosy bedrooms.
