It’s like stepping back in time with beautiful decor and quaint little corners to sit. Long drapes and candles gives a lavish ambience. It all makes for a memorable evening after reading the endless list of gins on offer.

Amazing selection of various types of Gin and mixes. Lovely atmosphere and very well thought out with Decor. Waiter service brilliant. A must to go to on a night out in Wimborne.

This was our first visit since they moved. The staff were great - very attentive and knowledgeable. We all had a couple of great gin cocktails before going on for dinner! Lovely start to the evening and lucky we booked as they were full.

I visited the new Gin House with a friend. The menu has got bigger and so has the place. We got 2 for 1 drinks which was a boost. The detracting factor was the poor service by a bunch of muppets who were more interested...More
