The Silent Woman

The Silent Woman

Coldharbour, Wareham, Dorset, BH20 7PA

A famous Dorset country pub in a spectacular location

Nestled in the heart of Wareham Forest in Dorset, the Silent Woman offers superb home-cooked food, beautiful gardens and a tranquil environment.

Until the 1920s the pub was known as The Angel, but after Thomas Hardy referred to it as ‘the Quiet Lady’ in his novel ‘The Return of the Native’, the pub changed its name to ‘the Silent Woman’. Today, the pub is a popular wedding venue, with a lovely garden gazebo and picturesque landscaped garden. This, along with its famous range of traditional home-made desserts, carefully chosen fine wines and local, award-winning Badger Beer on tap, makes the Silent Woman a unique pub not to be missed.
