Average, for a Witherspoon, stack it high sell it cheap, not much atmosphere. Dull. There are many more better and interesting pubs and restaurants within a stones throw, try one of them instead.

As dedicated Spoonies, we were looking forward to our visit to the Man in the Wall, and it was pretty much as expected. At 8 .00 pm on a Friday evening, there was a terrific buzz, a lot of noise and people of all ages enjoying the food, excellent beer and good company. The staff were rushed off their feet... More

Usually visit here when in Wimborne. Always a range of ales on offer and well kept. Gets busy at lunch time and 6 o clock with diners so must be doing something right. Food is usual Wetherspoon fare.

Fabulous value for the money. Had the bbq pulled pork burrito, comes with a side of guacamole, sour cream & salsa with tortilla crisps. All very tasty & with quick service. Very large pub which always seems busy. Limited parking. Good place for cheap tasty pub food.

I visited friends in Wimborne for a month and frequented the Man in the Wall on numerous occasions during that time. I have to say that quality and service and standards are excellent and there is always a friendly family atmosphere. In particular, I would like to mention Holly as one member of staff who stood out as being not... More
