Follow from a menu of fresh  sh, cuts of beef, lamb, and duck and more than just one token vegetarian option – always a treat to see equal rights for every palate! The loin of lamb, Sharpham Park spelt, pulled lamb shoulder, basil, heritage carrots, and asparagus is presented beautifully in  oors of  avour – each main is balanced, generous, and in terms of  avour re ects the con dence of chef. From  ne  llets of lemon sole to bold 8oz burgers with pastrami in a toasted brioche bun with dripping cooked chips and White Post slaw and even a children’s menu, there is a dining solution for literally everyone.
The White Post caters for all – but don’t get us wrong Brett is not a jack of all trades as one trait prevails and that is his top- class food. Mains average at £20 alongside a ‘favourites menu’ of traditional country treats such as Sherborne sausages and mash and a ploughman’s hamper at a modest £10 a pop.
Desserts are fresh, sticky, and marinated – the chilled chocolate parfait, salted peanuts, popcorn, popping candy, and vanilla ice cream, again has a humorous edge, with a seriously luxurious undertone. The set lemon cream, lemon curd, raspberries, raspberry meringue, and iced lemon is a picture, piquant and a perfect fruity partnership.
The White Post is a transparent experience – suppliers  aunted on the menu, Brett chatting with guests, Kelly working the restaurant  oor, and two other key members of the team, sons George and Harry, found busying around the restaurant and selling their chicken’s eggs – demonstrating the business sense that clearly runs throughout the Sutton family!
There are ales, ciders, milk vodkas, and a wine list that directs winers and diners to fresh and zingy, light and fruity, and elegant and bold wines. Indeed these are adjectives that also describe the entire White Post experience, which doesn’t need to end at dinner, as there are three delightful bedrooms at the
White Post – maybe a treat to accompany the 10-course taster menu?
So, the decision to be in two counties – we now see the sense, it simply means twice as many county awards of which we are sure there are plenty to come!
Brett also supports Action Against Hunger and is leading the way in West Country support for the humanitarian charity that you can read more about on P38.
