Yet another lovely lunch here. We have eaten here lunchtimes and evenings so many times, with friends or on our own and we have never, ever had a meal that wasn't top class. The staff are capable and friendly, the decor is really nice with all sorts of different tables to sit at. If you can't see a thing you...

We stopped here for a Sunday afternoon meal 2 adults and 2 children. Service was quite slow but very friendly and the menu was good for everyone with a separate children's menu. Food was very good and tasty.

Had lunch at the restaurant and ordered a sharing platter for two. It was very good value and tasted delicious. We came again for dinner another night and also enjoyed our meals then. Definitely a nice place to eat.

We were working in the area after being in London and a friend took us to visit the town. She put us up in this small hotel. The rooms are on the small side, but the whole place had charm. The food was excellent and the staff helpful. We appreciated stepping out the door directly onto the town square, which...

My wife had just had an operation on her foot and could not walk so well. They reserved a place for us in the car park which made all the difference. The central location was perfect not too much walking. The hotel as you would expect for a market town hotel that has had been in service of a few...

Visited here with family for a birthday meal 13 of us in total. The service was efficient and very prompt. The menu choices were brilliant, so much to choose from and a brilliant all round selection also not too expensive. I Would definitely recommend this place and I will also definitely be visiting again soon.

My husband and I stayed for just one night as we were visiting the area for a friend's 60th birthday celebrations. The room was comfortable and warm and very clean. There was an en suite which was fine. The staff were friendly and hospitable. Great choice of breakfast and it was served hot. All good quality. We would definitely stay...

Booked a few nights to coincide with a Chris Farlowe gig. The gig was fantastic..... on the other hand the "hotel" was absolutely awful. The rooms were of a very poor standard, stains on the carpet, cheap beds ( woke with back ache ) no USB point (come-on guys, in this day and age???) and this was one of their...

Well. What a lovely building and so much potential. Unfortunately it must be managed by the chuckle brothers or Stan laurel. Shame shame and more of shame. This place could be the absolute diamond of WIMBORNE. It's not. Not impressed.
