Our Story

Welcome To
The White Hart

Welcome to The White Hart, Wimborne. This 17th Century pub has grown with the town and we welcome everyone with our high quality food and wide range of drinks. Come on in, and grab a bite to eat or share a drink with an old friend. 

The good ol’ days

Time for a History lesson…

The White Hart, located in the Corn Market, is one of the oldest buildings in Wimborne. The building dates back to 1648 and was originally used as the stabling for the Wimborne Minster.

It then went on to be a holding place for the local constabulary, waiting for the Assizes. The Assizes court formerly sat at intervals in each county of England and Wales to administer the civil and criminal law. In 1972, the civil jurisdiction of assizes was transferred to the High Court, and the criminal jurisdiction to the Crown Court.

The White Hart cellar was originally used as an abattoir by local pig farmers. In the 1980s, this became a games room and then it became the cellar as it is known today.

The front of The White Hart, was added in 1798 hence the regency windows and the fact that it is so much shorter than all of the surrounding buildings. The Masons Lodge next door used to be the United Reformed Church. Wimborne Model Town used to be located in the back of the pub (where there are now houses) until they relocated to their current location in King Street.

What People are Saying

“Great Sunday Roast”

“Moved to Wimborne this week. Went to the White Hart after phoning late Sunday afternoon. Very helpful and friendly staff managed to fit us in. Well, what a feast! A fantastic roast, probably the best pub roast ever. Generous portions, good price, will definitely visit again.”

Richard C

“I popped into the pub for a spot of lunch on a day off work with my girlfriend. The staff are excellent! So polite and friendly. Couldn’t be more helpful and accommodating. The food was fantastic!” 


“The food was super fresh cooked to perfection, plus our salad looked and tasted as if it had been picked that day. But most of all we were welcomed as if we had been coming for years from the staff, a big Thank you to Chloe who had given us first class service. Really lovely place who served traditional British food, can’t beat it, Just amazing .”

Basia & Bobby
