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 the Government’s instruction on the 20th March 2020, we have temporarily closed our doors to protect our guests and our team from the risk of spreading COVID-19.  

We are now focussing on the immediate future and how we can continue to make people’s day during the temporary closure of our pubs. We will also ensure that we are well prepared to re-open when it is right to do so.

Colourful Coffee

Our delicious ‘Rocket Espresso’ comes from our friends at Extract Coffee Roasters and is the perfect combination of great coffee and good ethics. The special blend comprises 100% Arabica coffee beans from a single farm in Colombia and a co-operative project in Peru, which works to directly benefit the families and communities involved. The result of this is a naturally sweet and full-bodied coffee with notes of chocolate and caramel to finish.
