“Poor Thai Food, Slow Service, Great drinking pub.”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

We went to The White Hart's Thai night back in June and it was pretty rubbish.
The food took ages to come out and seemed like Lidl's packet food when we got it. The fish cakes were rubbery (I don't know how that was possible!) The pork was so fatty and grissly I have to spit some out into my napkin I couldn't eat it (slightly embarrassing amongst friends).
The staff were neither friendly or efficient (straightening their hair in the restaurant!!)
The pub is however in a great central location of Wimborne and is a great drinking pub with a pool table and fruit machines. But I wouldn't eat there again.

“Part of Wimborne's establishment”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

If you want a pub that is not pretentious and give a good solid and relaible service in the centre of historic Wimborne the White Hart is for you. This is a no nonsense hostlery with attentive service and basic home cooking that hits the spot. On the edge of a square that adjoins the Minster (Wimborne's iconic church) the place hums when the annual Mayoral carol concert takes place outside. As the brewery chains take over Wimborne this is an oasis of normality. Note there is garden - that backs on to one of Wimborne's best car parks that is well used on a sunny day.
