Welcome to The Olive Branch

A stunning bar / restaurant in the heart of Wimborne

The Olive Branch joined the Hall & Woodhouse family in 1964, originally ‘The Dormers’ it changed its name to the Olive Branch in 2003 after the Roman practice of hanging olive branches outside taverns as tokens of peace.  As you enter the pub you’ll find the Pantry with long bench style seating for a more relaxed dining experience, beyond the Pantry is our amazing bar, the heart of the house, and then the dining room with its open kitchen.  And if that’s not enough outside you’ll find our stunning terrace and garden, the best in Wimborne and the perfect place to relax on a sunny evening.

Unfortunately we are now fully booked for Christmas Day, don’t worry if you haven’t booked yet though we still have availability earlier in December, just fill in the form below to enquire and our Christmas Elf will come back to you.
