If you're looking for exquisite locally sourced food served in modern, airy surroundings, then you should head to The White Post in Rimpton. Following a refurbishment and a general breath of fresh air, Brett and Kelly Sutton opened The Post's doors in 2014 and went on to put their restaurant firmly on the culinary map, in turn earning a listing in the Michelin Guide and a Taste of the West Gold award. The array of British dishes that helped the Suttons win such accolades have been influenced by the restaurant's location along Dorset's border with Somerset, meaning that the food at this stunning eatery consists of the best produce of both counties.

The dining room boasts views across the pretty, expansive countryside, so there's plenty to look over both in terms of the surroundings and the menu. Serving both lunch and dinner, The White Post is the place to come to for lip-smacking starters like roasted Lyme Bay scallops with cauliflower fritters and golden raisins, and baked duck egg served with smoked gammon hock, peas and pineapple. Beautifully presented mains that aren't to be missed include rich truffle risotto with artichokes and creamy feta cheese, roasted duck breast, and the salt chamber rib-eye steak with dripping-cooked chips and watercress. To follow, puddings such as gooseberry and elderflower curd tart with meringue and refreshing lemon sorbet, and vanilla crème brûlée with a spiced tuille, are a popular way to round off a meal. Alternatively, feast on a variety of regional cheeses like Barber's Cheddar and Isle of Wight blue when you order the cheese board.

Visit on the day of rest, and you can also try the show-stopping Sunday roast selection, which includes a choice of six meats with fluffy Yorkshire puddings, vegetables and crispy roast potatoes - even Mum would be impressed.

If you want to extend your stay, you can get a comfy night's sleep in one of the en-suite rooms. Sink into the soft mattress, wrap up in the cosy duvet and unwind. Wake up and admire the tranquil landscape, then feast on the filling breakfast provided - the perfect way to set you up for a day exploring the area's attractions. Top places to visit nearby include the village museum, National Trust's Montacute House and the historic Sherborne Castle, which are all just a short drive away
