We particularly enjoyed the Steak pasties and vegetable and cheese pies....:) The bar has retained its timber walled wainscoting and the high back seating is comfortable.
No fancy bar or modern furniture (or modern anything), just fantastic drinks from and old world hatch, lovely wooden benches, tables and chairs sprawling outside.

It's a bit off of the beaten track compared to all of hubub of the pubs and bars around the quayside but the boot is only 200 metres from all of that and it's a whole different pace of life.
Bar staff were also super friendly and welcoming and really enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the ales.
Church St. Gin House Wimborne
#11 of 181 Nightlife in Dorset
I think this place is just what Wimborne needed - it's a cosy, quirky bar that provides a more decadent atmosphere than the many pubs that make up the majority of Wimborne's nightlife.
Amazing gin bar brilliant staff 'craig & David ;)' sooooooo many Gins, hundreds on the menu and unexpectedly well priced :)

Having moved here from London, we were quite spoilt for nightlife, to find we have a new local that exceeds my old favourites put the biggest smile on my face!

Absolutely stunning looking bar, with super knowledgeable and friendly staff (Laura, John and the team know their stuff!).

Convivial Rabbit Micropub Dorchester

We were recommended to this bar whilst on holiday visit to Dorchester, and found it hidden down a side street.
