The White Post

The only pub in the UK which straddles two borders, the White Post in Rimpton welcomes customers to dine in its award-winning restaurant while enjoying the far reaching views across the Dorset and Somerset countryside.

Brett and Kelly Sutton opened the White Post’s doors in early 2014 and, since then, the pub has been awarded Taste of the West Gold and won a listing in the Michelin Guide.

The pub got down to the final three for Best Gastropub in Somerset at the Somerset Food & Farming Awards in 2017.

When it comes to the menu, the White Post focuses on producing award-winning food with a personal touch.

Whether you fancy a classic pub lunch or a 10-course meal, the White Post showcases only the finest local ingredients and suppliers. If you want a soggy frozen pie, look elsewhere.

The pub’s Sunday lunches are revered by its customers. With five or six meats on offer, customers don’t get to choose, they get the lot, along with Yorkshire puddings, vegetables and dripping cooked potatoes.

Other menu highlights include lamb cutlets, slow cooked lamb belly, bubble and squeak with carrots, cumin and peanut Dukkah (£22) and walter rose rump steak with black garlic ketchup, dripping cooked chips and watercress (£21.50).

The pub also runs a Pudding Club – a mix of classical, forgotten and the more trend desserts, served with lashings of cream, custard and ice cream.

Diners can enjoy a cocktail, light main course and a selection of puddings, served at communal tables for £25.

Future plans for the pub include extending the restaurant area to house private dining.
