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.

Forum Lager

Introducing Forum, the brand new lager from Hall & Woodhouse.

Forum is a 4.2% refreshing Helles style lager, with a delicate flavour from the Weihenstephan yeast and a subtle fruity lemon character from Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon hops.

The name refers not only to Blandford Forum, the location of the H&W brewery where this new, exciting lager is brewed, but also to a meeting or gathering where ideas and views can be exchanged.  And where better to meet and put the world to rights than in a traditional British pub, where you can enjoy this refreshing drink with friends and family.

So what are you waiting for, make sure you try a pint next time you visit
