I just wanted to say that we had a fantastic night at The Crown Inn. We had a party for 55 guests and every single one of them commented on the quality of the buffet. The roast potatoes were delicious! We had a function room and use of the restaurant which was perfect, The bar staff were lovely - all... More

I stayed here whilst working in Sherborne, not impressed, indeed far from it. The rooms are nicely done but the walls are very thin and you can hear everything that is going on in the other rooms/bathrooms, including the TV. The waste system on the loos cuts in at odd times of the night, making a lot of noise, not... More

The writer has a very short memory, he has stayed at the premises on 4 occasions during the last 2 months at times keeping staff hanging around while finishing drinks, then commenting he had to work late. On the last occasion there was a party in the room under the said bedroom, he was made aware of this on booking... More

We had an evening meal here with my elderly mother and her sister (both in their eighties) as we were visiting my uncle in the hospital opposite. We were made very welcome and the owners were very flexible with our rather eccentric orders - the older ladies having soup and then dessert, my partner and I having a starter and... More

I've been here twice since reopening. The service is good, the food basic pub food but well cooked and good value for money. The first time I went, my fussy daughter couldn't see anything on the menu she wanted so the landlord quickly offered her egg and chips which went down a treat. The second time was for the £3.95...

I was doubtful if this place would ever reopen after a succession of disasters. one minute it was open the next it was shut. To my knowledge the freehold has been bought so it is free of tie and a freehouse [ the only other in Sherborne is The Digby Tap] I went in briefly for a drink and the... More

We stayed at the Crown because our friend was having her leaving party there.(Great buffet).What a friendly place it is. Our modern room was excellent it has been refurbished and the quality and detail made our stay very comfortable.Ian serves one of the best breakfasts we've had in a hotel in a long time.
