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.

We’re open 7 days a week and can’t wait to see you!

Please note you’ll need to book in advance, either online or via the phone, for all food and drink visits.

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

Badger Beer

It was deep in Dorset’s rolling hills and patchwork fields, in 1777, that local farmer Charles Hall brewed our first beer. A union of the Hall & Woodhouse families soon followed and the story of Badger beer had begun.
