Fairly nice Hall & Woodhouse pub situated just to the north of Wimborne. There are 2 rooms - the Village Bar, which had a few young customers and a larger lounge with only one table occupied, until a local sports club (possibly hockey) arrived. Only 2 beers were on - First Gold & Pickled Partridge. The fridges looked a little bare. Could be better if it wasn't a tied house.

Not a bad place, lovely vista's out the front over the peaceful woodland burial ground. Massive underdeveloped garden out the back. Bet this is turned into a campsite before too long. Beer always nice and well kept if a little pricey - but then that's what a brewery tie does for you.

From strength to strength. The community minded landlady tries very much to involve the local community hosting a number of events. Food is pretty good (my son likes it) beer is Ringwood and ok, but not for me and I remain one of the Guinness drinkers.

Spent a very pleasant Sunday afternoon in the Horns. Really don't know why we don't visit more often. Great service, good choice of home cook food and good beers. The garden is a real plus with lots of people across all ages enjoying the Autumn sun. A proper pub not far out of Wimborne.

Went there with a load of friends - Nice Pickled Partridge pint. Didn't have food but it looked nice. Good pub. Did headstand on the bar - easy!

I always say if you see cycles parked outside on a Sunday it must be good. Cyclist's are always there and I know it is good.

I'd heard a lot about this pub from clients of the near by Burial ground, so on that premis, i took the inlaws there for a drink last friday.

I have to say, it felt like a proper pub when we walked into the lounge bar. Very homely and had a warm 'pubby' smell about it.
A nice pint of HB Premium, and some VERY nice Rose wine, were available
The barmaid/land lady was a little frosty but did the job and a nice time was had by all, We didnt eat here, but the food looked plentiful and seemed to go down a treat with those who were dining.

Agree with Billieposter. The refurbishment is a great job. Opened the lounge bar up. Modernised but still retaining character. A couple of nice large dining tables with great views across the field opposite. The staff are friendly. Food is reasonable, great value Sunday roast.
Again, in common with a lot of Wimborne pubs, it is let down by the beer - I am one of those to be found drinking Guiness. This is a shame as although it is a nice pub, there are others within a 10 minute drive that are as good, and offer a decent pint of Ringwood or London Pride
