Stopped here while seeing the sights of Dorset. Super lunch and drinks at very reasonable prices. Enjoyed a ploughman’s with good quality cheese and gammon. Great Wadworth beers on draft. A very warm, welcoming and friendly bar woman served us and topped off our visit.

The green man was booked for this lunch. I am in a wheelchair and we have a large dog and this pub made everything perfect. The location was perfect with easy entrance and landlord very welcoming. The food was simple but great. Definitely going again

Many thanks for your comments. We are sorry you feel you were started on by some 'drunk locals' that is unfortunate although not everyone that comes in the pub are locals and we try our best to monitor everyone. Our quiz night format is a...More

Thanks Kat and the team for a lovely Sunday lunch followed by a super crumble. As always the staff were cheerful and attentive. Nice pub with good ambiance and well kept beer. Good luck with your new venture. Glad you are keeping on The Green...Man too. Our favourite pub. Just wished we lived in Wimborne so could enjoy the Swordfish beer more often.More

We went for Christmas Eve drinks with two friends, it was 11 o’clock and had bought a round of drinks 10 minutes after were told to “Drink up and F@#$ off” by Carol the bar tender. Then as we are leaving the pub 2 minutes...after being told to “F@#$ off ” we were delighted to hear her say “just f@#$ off already”. Nice pub shame about the quality of the beer and the staff.More

Went for lunch at the Green Man. Wonderful pub with friendly service and excellent food. Although the menu is small what is on it is well cooked and delicious. Always tastes fresh and wholesome due to the pub sourcing most of it's food from local...suppliers. We visit often and would highly recommend the pub. Great service and sensible pricing and excellent beer.More

Visited for Sunday Lunch, having read in the local paper that it had been voted ‘Friendly Pub of the Week’. It certainly lived up to its accolade. The staff were friendly and helpful, showed us to our table and took our order. The Sunday roast...was excellent, with a choice of chicken and/or beef and was one of the best roast dinners we have had in a long time. The food arrived piping hot, with a great selection of fresh vegetables and plenty of gravy. All this for less than a tenner! And for an extra £2 you can have a dessert from a good selection. We had apple crumble and custard and brownie and ice cream. Both delicious. The roast chicken was moist and very tasty. Also you could have a smaller portion, which I found perfect. We will definitely be back.More

Booked up for Sunday lunch. A great meal. We both had roast beef. Cooked to perfection. The vegetables were cooked beautifully, not too hard and not to soft - perfect. My wife had the smaller portion, which was perfect for her and left room for...a lovely apple crumble and custard. As always great staff, and great value. No rip off prices like we experienced in the West Country last week. Our favourite pub. So we can highly recommend this pub.More

Our favourite Wimborne pub, a must on every Wimborne visit, even if it is only once a year. A proper pub, always a good welcome, always a good floral display and Wadworth ales. Back next year.
