Tucked away just on the outskirts of the picturesque town of Wimborne Minster, The Willett Arms is a restored local pub serving a menu of unpretentious modern British food. In summer, enjoy a lazy pint in the sun-drenched beer garden; in colder weather, curl up by the log fire in the bar & restaurant, which also boast rustic furniture and a large L-shaped bar.

Sourcing ingredients from trusted local suppliers, The Willett Arms menu features wholesome recipes based around the garden, land and sea. Sample hand-pressed burgers, beef & ale pie with cardamom carrots, or sea bass with potato gnocchi, while old-school puddings include warming crumbles, custard-lathered sponges and decadent brownies. Not forgetting younger diners, a kids’ menu includes miniature versions of British classics.

A partnership with the celebrated Rothschild wine merchants means The Willett Arms cellar is stocked full with an eclectic list of world wines, while indulgent wine flights allow guests to sample a variety of bins. Seasonal beers and barrel-kept ales also feature, as well as thirst-quenching cocktails and rich coffees.

The Willett Arms in Wimborne is a 12-minute drive from Poole Rail Station.

    Food was very good. The meals were all served together and were all piping hot considering we were in a party of 12. Service at the bar was also prompt and efficient. Definitely will return.

    Excellent menu choice, lovely food. Staff were great - very polite and attentive. A couple of our party asked for slight variations on the items specified on the menu and all dishes were received correctly.
