The Olive Branch | Stunning bar and resturant in the heart of Wimborne

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.

Following Government approval and clear operating guidelines, we’re delighted to be able to welcome you soon!

We just need a little more time to make the necessary changes to keep you and our team safe and ensure we can consistently deliver the very highest levels of hospitality.

Our reopening date is Thursday 9th July and you’ll need to book in advance, either online or via the phone, for all food and drink visits. For a limited time we will be operating 6 days a week, 11am to 11pm Tuesday to Saturday and 12 noon to 6pm on Sundays. Our food service times will be 12 noon to 9.00pm Tuesday to Saturday and 12 noon to 4.00pm on Sundays.

Please note that our guest bedrooms at the Albion, just a short walk from the pub, will remain closed for now, but we’ll let you know when they can be safely reopened in due course.

We’re also making some changes to keep you safe. For more details of what to expect when you visit, please click here.

Excited? Why not book a table today? We can’t wait to have you visit!

We’ve Made Some Changes to Keep You Safe

Your safety and enjoyment are our main priorities, so we’ve worked hard to introduce a range of measures to keep you safe, simply click on the link below to view all of the changes and our special safety video.

SEE ALL OUR CHANGES

Sunday Roasts

We think ours are the best (apart from Mum’s!) and we spend all week looking forward to them. Freshly roasted every Sunday morning and served with seasonal veg, Yorkshire pud, roasties and gravy, homemade in our kitchen.

Unlock’d Lager

Forum Lager, brewed exclusively for H&W pubs, has undergone a temporary re-brand to ‘Unlock’d Lager’, with 10p from every pint sold going to one of our local pub charities. So when you try it you’ll be doing your bit to help the local community during these difficult times.
