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.

I stayed in the Crown Inn for a few days with a friend to rekindle memories of our school days in Sherborne. Ian and Marilyn made me very welcome with a lovely fresh modern room and great food particularly the summer pudding! An excellent base to explore Dorset from.

We also had a a very succulent steak meal cooked just as we had asked. Iain and his staff were very attentive and we were treated as... More

My daughter and I went in on Friday 18 April, I had an 8oz rump steak and she had a... More

I have been a regular at Crown for many years and seen Landlords come and go. Chris O'Brien was the last decent one there, and since then Punch let the pub go to ruins. So thank god that Ian and Marilyn have arrived to save us from using other pubs in the town that frankly have seen better days. The... More

Over the past twelve months this excellent hotel has been closed and shuttered up at least three times. I have been a regular here since 1977 and have seen many landlords come and go. It must be said that most of them were excellent. Ian & Marilyn have bought the hotel from Punch Taverns Group to a huge sigh of... More

Had lunch here. Very pleasant attentive staff. Comfy seats near a log stove. Lunch was good. Just what we were looking for. Good omelette. Specials board always nice to see. One of our party enjoyed the chicken curry. Nice jazz music playing quietly in the background
