The White Post


Believed to be the country's only remaining pub to straddle two counties, it's only fair that one real ale and one cider - Butcombe and Orchard Pig, respectively - should come from Somerset, and ditto - DBC and Dabinett - from Dorset. Appearing on the thoroughly modern menus could be sea bass with samphire, crab tortellini, crab bisque, caviar and saffron mayo; lamb rump with confit Maris Piper potatoes, textures of onion, seared liver and roasted lamb sauce; and, requiring a deeper dig into the wallet, 50-day-hung, salt-chamber rib-eye with dripping-cooked chips and black-garlic ketchup. To finish, carpaccio of pineapple, iced passionfruit, coconut jelly, pink praline and coriander.
