Don't be put off by all the deals!

I don't know about you, but too many signs outside a pub advertising special offers, "open mic" nights (whatever they are), sport on large screen TV, etc, can put me right off. The Crown has plenty of them but do not be put off. This is still a traditional pub (with rooms) serving real ales and... read more

Ian and Marilyn treat us like good friends than paying customers. Truly wonderful experience. There was nothing I disliked, our room was clean and tidy and the breakfast was plentiful.

Took my family here to celebrate my birthday. The food was really good value and tasted great. Staff were very accommodating and good banter. They made us welcome and had a laugh with us also. We'll be coming back.

I arrived at The Crown Inn on a Wednesday evening to be welcomed by a jazz band playing and a friendly landlord (Ian) and bar staff. My room was very comfortable and I enjoyed a hearty breakfast in the morning. It was a wonderful introduction to Sherborne and I would recommend it as a lovely place to stay for a... More

Don't normally write reviews, but thought this place was worth making the time for. Family holiday of seven made an opportunist stop at this place.. Welcome was great.. hospitality throughout was great.. Food was great.. Well worth a visit..

The room the food and the staff were great. Beds were comfortable and we really enjoyed our meals for dinner and breakfast the next morning. Like the saying on the wall, we arrived as strangers but left as friends. Friendly relaxed atmosphere in the pub in the evenings which had us chatting to locals and others travellers alike, as well... More

Have been here many times now that it's opened under new management, and it is very civilised and welcoming; dining here has been pleasant, good value and is something we will repeat many times again. Keep up the good work - it's working!

My family and I visited The Crown for lunch. We were welcomed by a lovely lady, who was very polite and helpful. It is a very pretty building that has been refurbished to a high standard, creating a really relaxed atmosphere. We all ordered from the Golden Years menu (2 courses for £5.95 when buying a drink). The food was... More

We ordered drinks at the bar initially & several of our party had diet cokes , served from a ' tap'. Unfortunately , although we complained that we felt these were ' flat' this... More

My husband and I had a wonderful Valentines evening at the Crown. Everything from the food to the staff was excellent. The meal was very good and the presentation of the food and how the table was laid out was excellent and the price was very competitive. The landlord was very attentive but not in your face and the landlady... More
