“Wonderfully creative menu that works on every level. Fun and inspiring interior.”
Review of The Giant Club

The Giant Club
Ranked #4 of 37 Restaurants in Axminster
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$40 - US$40
Description: A lovely gem of a restaurant with a quirky, bohemian feel serving interesting food and great drinks. All of the meats are locally sourced, fish is from the south coast and the majority of the vegetables are picked on the day. Most of the wines are organic and there is a short but balanced cocktail menu. Lots of cool decor and low lighting give this place a great ambiance.

Well worth the train fare from London, we had a fantastic experience at The Giant Club.

The set menu was inspired, every dish a delight. Very reasonably priced for the high quality locally sourced produce. Fantastic cocktails.

Already looking forward to our next visit.

Fabulous food in a fun and surprising interior. We stayed in nearby Symondsbury and went on a walk along the Jurassic Coast the next day. Totally recommend a weekend trip combining food and scenery discovery.

Very brave to open just two nights a week with only enough room for about 20 dinners and then one set menu. But if you are good enough to do that then it makes great sense. We felt very lucky to be there and the ambience felt like a shady hang out, from a novel, of a time long past, for artists and revolutionarys !
The whole meal took a while from start to finish, giving you a good amount of time to enjoy the experience. The highlights, the jerusalem artichoke crisps, never had anything like them before, I could have eaten them until the new year. The squid, chestnuts and chilli - an amazing new flavour I'd not tasted and I love squid. The incredibly light but perfectly balanced chocolate and amaretto mouse capped off a great evening. The other three dishes were lovely but the three mentioned were sublime.
