Chedington Lane, CHEDINGTON, Beaminster, DT8 3HY
Situated beside National Trust woodlands in a corner of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the old inn's garden commands an extraordinary view across Somerset from the eponymous gap in the sinuous chalk hills. The two counties provide the wherewithal for the August cider festival here, whilst beers from Exmoor and Otter breweries anoint the bar, with its solid rustic seating and tables and a log-burner for the winter nip. The impressive 'Ultimate Ploughman's' takes in the cheeses of the area, or enjoy chicken liver parfait with real ale chutney and Evershot Bakery toast, then chargrilled matured West Country beef with hand-cut chips, field mushrooms, tomatoes and herb butter. Leave space for chocolate fondant with clotted cream, or pineapple tarte Tatin and lime cream.
