We have eaten at the Crown dozens of times since moving to Dorset in 2000. We have seen landlords come and go, and the quality of the food vary over the years, but the ambience of this lovely place, with its roaring inglenook fire (even in May in the cool spring of 2015) stone walls and old furniture, never changes....

After my stay here last September I couldn't wait to return with my boyfriend and sample their wonderful cheesy chips I have ben dreaming about all winter. What a disappointment ;-(( The Crown has changed hands over the winter and the standard of the food has taken a real knock - not only were the cheesy chips not a patch... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights as we were taking part in a local marathon. It is a beautiful pub and the annexed accommodation is delightful. The décor and furnishings stunning. The landlord/staff were very attentive and we had some very good meals including a lovely cooked breakfast. We would definitely return and would also recommend to... More

On our travels around we tend to stay in towns and busier places but just for a change I thought I would find us a more countryfied overnight stop for the last day of our family break. Whatever website I was on the pictures looked good and so we booked. First of all none of the pictures do this place... More

Stopped for a lunchtime meal with friends whilst visiting the area. Greeted very warmly and the staff were very attentive during our visit. Great atmosphere and the food was of a very good standard. Would be extremely happy to visit here again.

A lovely hotel in a wonderful setting. The staff were very friendly and the room was very well appointed. Lovely large bathroom, large bath with a shelf for drink! Only drawback was a charge for early registration. Excellent full English Breakfast. Will recommend and no doubt return.

Initially the 6 of us were just looking for a relaxing meal out during our weekend away. We ended up staying for hours chatting to the friendly locals and owners, Darren and Matt. Great food, large portions and very welcoming. Would definitely recommend the bar and restaurant however we didn't stay there so can't comment on the accommodation. Well done... More
