please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Cosy feel pub and very welcoming.
Saw the old dog behind the bar......and Cooper (only joking).
No, the landlady was very nice and introduced us to Cooper, the pub's friendly dog.

Wadworth beers on three hand pumps; Swordfish, 6X and Henry IPA.

really great quality beers and friendly staff - lack of garden a shame 'cos the pub looks amazing from the outside.

To sit out next to a busy road was a let down, but that isn't their fault. A well-run and lovely place to come and see, but rather claustrophopic in many ways.

Would gladly go back again for a visit, but as I say the thought of sitting on a hot day next to a road doesn't appeal to me - definitely a winter pub!

New years eve here as a visitor - made very welcome sorry to leave early but had booked an indian (Red Fort - worst curry ever - sorry). Ale sampled was very good (6x) and atmosphere very good also. My favourite pub in the town.

Revisited this lovely little pub after quite a while. Well kept beer , still Wadworths,and a good glass of Merlot for Floozie Suzy. Didn't eat but noticed that the Sunday lunches are very popular. Best pub within the town!

I cycled out to the Green Man with a lovely lady, and enjoyed a great pint of Real Ale, followed by an even greater pint of Scrumpy. She had a Cheese Ploughmanís, and I had a particularly generous helping of Steak and Ale pie. The bar staff were exceptionally friendly. The toilets were spotlessly clean, the taps stayed on long enough for you to actually get your hands under them, and the hand driers blew hot and long. The pub itself was clean and quaint. I would have rated it more highly if it had a beer garden, but aside from that, I canít fault it.

My choice of pub in Wimborne. Always good beer and excellent Sunday lunches.

This is a great local pub. The beer is very well kept, particularly the 6X. There is generally quite a buzz of conversation from the many regulars, especially later in the evening when it gets quite busy. The landlord and his wife have turned this pub into arguably the best in Wimborne for a drink. Also does very good value food at lunchtimes. The flowers ouside in the summer have quite rightly won many prizes in the Wimborne in Bloom competition.

After passing this pub for many years , my wife and I decided today to have their Sunday Roast.
The area for eating is quite small but cosy, makes for a friendly atmosphere.
We were lucky to find seats as booking for Sunday is normally required,
They were busy which accounted for a delay in our meals, but well worth the wait, This was without doubt the best roast ever.
The lamb was -melt in the mouth, vegetables cooked to perfection, not overdone.All served hot
The inclusive choice of sweets made it difficult to select. my wife had a strawberry cheesecake, I selected the "Blemished Richard" Spotted Dick !!
Though parking is a little difficult, it was well worth it.
We shall certainly return for another good homely meal at a very reasonable price. brought to table by a lovely lady------------The landlord Andrews mum.

This is one of my favourite pubs. The beer is excellent, and the wadworth ales make an interesting change from the ringwood or badger served elsewhere in wimborne.
Trail_Blazers description is pretty accurate but he didn't mention (likely didn't know) that there are a couple of pool tables in an old stable behind the pub.

Small car park. Good decor. Good beer/cider. Reasonable food. Excelent base for pub walking.The Green Man is a pub specialising in Wadworth ales, usually 6X and Henry's Original IPA, though they also do guest ales occasionally. The present landlady Linda Flowers has turned the pub back into the style of a country town pub. The previous tenants had stripped it bare which took away from its low beamed ceilings and the wooden trestle interior. The Green Man has many little nooks and crannies in which to have a private drink, a small and cosy section at the rear is up steps as are the toilets which makes it unsuitable for the disabled at present. Seating in the main is at 4-seater dark wood and metal tables with standard chairs and some bench seating along one wall. On the walls are horse brasses and country scene pictures. Next to the bar is a noticeboard announcing the latest Wimborne and pub events. There is also a real fire which, when lit in winter warms the entire pub. The bar is towards the rear of the pub and is a small wooden strip with low overhang. There are some stools at the bar, though these can become a nuisance at busy times. Food is served lunch and evenings. The menu is basic at lunch times and not too adventurous - baguettes, toasted sandwiches and ploughmans, etc. Not much for the vegetarian. Evening meals are from a different menu and there is a specials board. Prices vary and are reasonable for lunch. The atmosphere at The Green Man is relaxed and it can provide a welcome break from shopping in the very nearby town centre, or simply for a night out. Situated on the east of the town's ring road on the road to Canford Cliffs, just off Julians Road, it is easy to get to and there is plenty of parking. In the summer there are benches outside under an ivy covered trellis with bird boxes. Occasionally there is live music here. No accommodation here
