There are two listing options available to help you advertise your public house.
Firstly, we offer pubs a BASIC listing for simply indicating the presence of your pub. This listing will show limited information on your pubs core facilities and is free of charge. You can update your listing anytime, but it does not include contact options or a link to your pub’s website. Your listing will appear in a standard position on search results and you are limited to just a single photo image plus sixty words of text to describe your establishment.

By comparison, a FULL listing is for those landlords wishing to maximise the number of views of their pubs listing and generate as many customer enquiries as possible. A FULL listing will show detailed information on all your pubs features such as your facilities, food, drinks, events, entertainment, and accommodation along with unlimited images and as much description text as you wish to include. It provides potential customers with multiple routes to contact you such as your telephone number, a direct messaging facility and a link to your pub’s website. Your pub will appear in a priority position on searches, and it also provides links to your social media websites. Additionally, your pub will be featured on our website homepage. The FULL listing option is subject to charge by annual subscription but is very cost-effective compared to most other forms of internet-based advertising.

If you are considering listing multiple pubs in Wimborne or advertising an entire chain of pubs we can help ensure you get the best terms available to meet your needs. For instance, you may wish to list a number of pubs in Wimborne and have the ability to switch between listing pubs which are closing as businesses and new pubs in Wimborne or other areas that are opening. Please contact us to discuss commercial arrangements for such requirements.

If you list your pub as a FULL listing, your subscription is for a 12-month term. As the term comes to its end you will be sent a courtesy email at that time to remind you to renew your subscription if you wish to continue as a FULL listing. If you don’t wish to continue advertising your pub as a FULL listing on our guide you don’t need to take any course of action, your listing will simply automatically switch to a free of charge BASIC listing.


In addition to helping pubs in Wimborne advertise their business on our pub guide, we have relationships with partners that can also help with all aspects of website design and development and with trade associations that can assist you with market information and engaging with organisations within the pub industry.
