Our community and area
The Green Man is ideally situated in Wimborne, Dorset, perfect for visitors to the South coast, as well as locals and residents.
Situated just under a mile from the A31, visitors can take advantage of our great location and join us for breakfast, brunch or lunch before continuing on their way along the coast.
Alternatively, why not spend some time in the area as there is plenty to do! Here are just a few activities in and around Wimborne.
The impressive 12th church that gives the town its name. Wimborne Minster houses the second largest chained library in the country and very interesting architecture. www.wimborneminster.org.uk
