Last year over £15,000 was raised for our nominated charity Together for Short Lives, through Christmas Celebrations (25p from every booking deposit). We think that we can do even better this year!
Following the fire on Saturday 12th August at The Albion in Wimborne; we know that the fire started in an external compound separate from the property, however it is not clear at the moment what the cause of the fire was.
Our team acted superbly in getting everyone out of the building quickly and safely. We would like to thank Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service for their swift response and their immediate actions helped prevent the spread of the fire.
For the safety of our team and guests we have closed the Albion whilst we check for any damage and clean the rooms. We are working hard to get the bedrooms at The Albion open as soon as possible and hope to open the main body of the hotel this week with the ground floor rooms opening once we have established what works need to take place, we apologise for any inconvenience this causes our guests.
Further updates, including re-opening dates, will be posted on our Facebook page and website www.theolivebranchwimborne.co.uk.

Perhaps the most spectacular Bar and Restaurant in Dorset, The Olive Branch is situated in the picturesque market town of Wimborne Minster and is easily accessible from Poole & Bournemouth.
We like to have something for everyone no matter what the occasion. Our 'Herb Garden' with its old chairs & tables and selection of plants and herbs (used by our kitchen team in some of our dishes) is the perfect place to relax. Inside you'll find the 'Pantry' which promotes a more relaxed dining style with its long tables and benches. Our ‘Dining Room’ allows for a more formal dining experience and is built around our open kitchen allowing guests to experience our kitchen team hard at work. If it’s just a drink you're after then our 'Bar' is the perfect place to meet and celebrate with friends and family over a pint of Badger Beer and the Beer Cave truly is something to behold with its curved ceiling partly made of Beer bottles.
If that's not enough then we have a Private function room accommodating up to 50 guests, a spectacular beer garden and terrace for al fresco dining and our very own Inn with 10 luxurious rooms just across the market square. For enquiries about accommodation bookings call The 1777. directly on 01202 887388 (manned between 3pm and 8pm). For phone enquiries about accommodation before and after these times, please contact The Olive Branch.
We love dogs, as all good pubs should! Well-behaved dogs are welcome in our bar and outdoor areas. Wi-Fi access is free to all our guests (subject to availability).
