The White House is a family-owned Hotel and Restaurant located in the bustling Somerset village of Williton. The building, originally a farmhouse, was built approximately 300 years ago and is a Grade II listed building. It has 7 guest bedrooms in the main house and a further 5 in the Courtyard. These outside rooms were formally the stables and a dairy and if you venture to the back of the Courtyard you can see the original barn.
The restaurant is open to the public as well as hotel guests and has two resident chefs, Dainis and Arek.
Our 2 chefs, Dainis and Arek, are both directors and have been friends since they worked in the same kitchen in London in 2005.
Arek is from Poland and Dainis is Russian Latvian.
As well as Poland, Arek has worked in kitchens in London, Dubai, Oxford and Reading. He specialises in Asian and traditional British cuisine.
Dainis has also worked in London plus New York, Birmingham and Exeter. He specialises in European food, particularly French and Italian but has also been head chef of a traditional Indian restaurant.
At The White House we source our meat from Somerset Farmhouse butchers, our vegetables from Veggie Patch in Watchet and our eggs from Meadowsweet Farm. We grow a lot of our own herbs at The White House.
Our menus showcase the different skills of the chefs. They add their own splashes of exotic flavours and cooking styles to predominantly British dishes.
