Winner: The White Post, Rimpton

Readers from as far afield as Sutton Coldfield and Bristol were telling us about this ‘awesome’ Sunday lunch. ‘Families, couples and parties flock here on a Sunday because the concept is brilliant,’ said one reader. And that concept is a board of roasted local meats placed in the middle of the table for diners to share featuring roast rib of beef, roasted lamb, loin of pork, pot roasted chicken, topped with giant Yorkshire puddings and accompanied by dripping cooked parsnips and potatoes, and seasonal veg dishes such as red cabbage cooked in Dorset cider and cauliflower and broccoli cheese.

Highly Commended: Custom House, Poole

Sourcing and cooking great British beef is something that this establishment in Poole excels at according to our readers. Whether it’s melt in the mouth steaks, Chateaubriand to share, or their famous Sunday roast beef, which uses South West beef that has been hung for 28 days. It is cooked to perfection by Head Chef, Adam Philips, accompanied by crisp duck fat roasted potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and seasonal vegetables.

Highly Commended: Haddon House Hotel, Bridport

Our readers loved the traditional take on the classic Sunday roast at the Haddon House Hotel in Bridport, which they described as a lovely family run hotel with great service and friendly helpful staff. Readers said that they liked the fact there was a good selection of hand carved roasts on offer including lamb, beef, pork and turkey, served with all the trimmings, including feather-light Yorkshires, crispy roasties and rich and tasty gravy.
