We had been hearing good comments regarding the food from various people, including locals, so thought it time we tried a meal at the Crown Inn. Visited last Wednesday evening and had a very enjoyable meal. The food was freshly cooked, tasty, very filling and well presented. Will certainly be eating there again.

Five of us had the Sunday Roast, served by attentive staff in a thoroughly clean, attractive surroundings. If I was going to be picky, the beef was probably bought in all ready sliced, the Yorkshire puds weren't home made,and the roast potatoes were deep fried, but along with plenty of delicious well cooked vegetables, nothing detracted from a generously portioned...

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
