As regular users of the Olive Branch in Wimborne and having pleasantly dined there last New Year’s Eve we were looking forward to this year. Unfortunately, it did not meet the same expectations. The welcoming was very friendly but the Prosecco was not chilled. The...More

Had very enjoyable meal, chicken burger with crispy bacon, and hubby had fish and chips. We shared cheese and biscuits. Waitress was lovely, and pub had cosy ambience. We ate early on a Tuesday evening.
