Dating back to 1639, this Grade II listed building was once a posting house, but now functions as a charming traditional hotel and restaurant. Set in the town of Moretonhampstead, within the bounds of Dartmoor National Park, The White Hart Hotel is the ideal base for hikers, sightseers and dog owners. Soft, muted colours and tweed fabrics combine with the quiet background music to create a delightfully relaxing ambience. As well as a comprehensive wine list, the well-stocked bar has a full range of local ale and a good selection of gin – we settled down with a lime and soda and a glass of Cornish lager.

We began our meal with a wonderfully creamy mushroom and thyme soup with homemade bread, and juicy chicken and red pepper terrine with apple, pear and paprika chutney. For mains, I opted for herb-crusted lamb rump with potato Dauphinoise, red cabbage and pea purée. The lamb was cooked to perfection – sweet, pink and juicy, served in flavoursome rosemary and redcurrant jus. My companion plumped for beautifully savoury pear and blue cheese arancini with a vibrant heritage tomato salad. To follow, we sampled palate-cleansing gin sorbet, and tangy lemon posset with homemade toffee and shortbread. To end our evening on a peaceful note, we retired to the lounge for coffee before heading home.
