Stopped here for lunch when visiting Fleet Air Museum - very impressed! Very welcoming to us and our toddler, the food was excellent. The black pudding scotch egg was superb and the bangers and mash were perhaps the best we've had! Great find, would love to return to try the taster menu!

Haven't been here for a while but after this visit vowed to return sooner rather than later. A group of four of us each had the 10 course taster meal and everybody thoroughly enjoyed it. So many unusual ideas, each giving out of the ordinary experiences. Great night out.

Interesting location straddling the Dorset/Somerset border with great views. Many original and unusual dishes on the menu. A good find.

Had our works do here. Everyone was so impressed with the amazing food and great service. One of our group has several food allergies but unlike some venues, this wasn't a problem. Wine and ales were all good too. You can't fault the welcome and hospitality at the White Post.

Can't fault the service, they were all over it. We had the 8 course taster menu, each dish was presented well and tasted amazing.

With stunning views on the top of Rimpton Hill across the Somerset levels The White Post excels in a number of ways but mainly for its food. We were surprised and delighted with the innovative way the dishes are served, the taste and quality of the cooking, the 'amuse bouche' soup appetiser and the price. They also have a few... More

This was my second trip to The White Post, but my first for Sunday lunch. I'd had a lovely meal last time and was more than happy to recommend it for a birthday lunch with a very good friend and her family. Of the 5 of us, 3 plumped for the Sunday roast, a celebration of all things meaty with... More

We decided to try Lunch at The White Post on Valentines Day. We were not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We found all the staff and owner very welcoming. We shall certainly be returning.

This is the second time I have had Sunday lunch here and the third time overall I have eaten here. On this occasion I had the hullomi to start and the fish course for main. The starter was amazing and you could clearly see the skill of the chef in the presentation and flavour combinations, it wasn't a big starter... More

For the second year in a row, we went to The White Post for Christmas Eve. We took the eldest and his girlfriend with us this year. Once again, the food was exceptional. Having the food explained to us is really nice and builds to the excitement. Each of the 5 courses were beautifully presented and tasted as good, if... More
