The Whitminster Inn
The Whitminster Inn is an independently run bar and restaurant offering professional service and an imaginative menu. Expect lavish portions and exceptional value for money.
Before taking a seat in the cosy dining area, which is stylishly decorated in warm burgundy tones, we relaxed in the light and airy conservatory with a refreshing drink while contemplating the many tempting homemade dishes on the menu. First-rate starters of mackerel fillets with sourdough, and twice-baked Cheddar cheese soufflé began proceedings and was a good sign of things to come. For my main, the pan-fried sea bream fillet was a show-stopper and the accompaniments of champ mash, wilted spinach and caper berry butter took the dish into near-perfect territory. A rich dessert of flourless chocolate Balthazar cake rounded off the evening in style.
As well as a comfortable bar and restaurant, The Whitminster Inn also boasts elegant accommodation and a function room for special occasions. The Orchard Marquee, situated in the apple orchard overlooking stunning rolling countryside, provides the perfect setting for weddings and corporate events. A visit to this versatile venue is a must, be it for a special occasion or a midweek meal.
