My company booked me in at the crown inn Monday to Thursday over a two week period whilst I worked in Sherborne & I have to say it was a lovely stay. The landlord Ian and his wife Marilyn were great hosts & made me feel so welcome, the rooms were very clean and cosy with all the amenities you... More

We have eaten several times now and the food is fantastic. It has been so consistent. The friendly atmosphere also makes it a great evening out. We have been so impressed we have booked our christmas lunch there.

Fantastic, food was spot on, with quite a range for a buffet and excellent value. Well looked after by staff and landlord very friendly. Everyone went home happy, what more could you ask. For those leaving bad reviews, I am not sure they were staying in Sherborne let alone the Crown Inn! The Crown has had a few landlords over... More

I have just attended a school reunion at the Crown. It was the perfect venue and the landlord Ian (a former pupil at the school) was very welcoming. The finger buffet was lovely and the service good. I have yet to sample their restaurant menu, so a return trip is on the cards. From what I could see other diners... More

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...
