we have eaten here many times because it's good honest food. Good service, pleasant staff and friendly atmosphere! Good for all the family! Great to eat here and go over to a show at the theatre opposite.

This was our first visit to The Man in the Wall, the best thing that I can say about this Wetherspoon Pub is that it was good value. A bottle of Pinot Grigio was under £9 and the total food and drinks bill for 3 people was under £24.00. The place was fairly busy indicating that it is a popular... More

This large Wetherspoons Pub is very popular and one of the hubs/meeting places in Wimborne Minster. We stayed in the area for 4 days and chose to go in there for 3 of our evening meals, it was full every time we arrived but we didn't have to wait too long for a table. We particularly enjoyed the Tuesday Steak... More

One of the best for value. I visited The Man in the Wall, Wimborne Minster on a themed Fish and Chip night 'Friday' with friends Very basic but extremely good value for money.

I don't usually complain about a weatherspoons pub because you get what you pay for! But I sat at table directly in front of the hot plate and saw my food come up. Ten mins later my girlfriends dinner was brought over. Just after that they brought over my burger which had been sat there for more than ten mins.... More

Really popular, so don't be surprised if the tables need tidying. Food here is cheap and cheerful but always good value for money. More surprising is the way they manage to serve good wine, well chilled and all other drinks at bargain prices.

We regularly have breakfast here, but after a month away have noticed on our last two visits that standards have fallen. Breakfasts were lukewarm and on cold plates. Serving sizes smaller (beans; sauce on Eggs Benedict, etc.) and the coffee is weaker. I guess it reduces costs, but we are going elsewhere for a while.
