Our drinks selection is well-formed but uncomplicated.

Our ales are supplied by local brewery, Hall &. Woodhouse in the nearby town of Blandford Forum, gin comes from local & world distilleries & our wine list is varied & growing. Our handpicked list (we’ve personally tried them all) features over twenty-five wines from around the world & a carefully curated range of beers, ciders & spirits through to a choice of non-alcoholic options & softies if you aren’t on the booze.

DINE

Our relaxed pub is the perfect environment for lazy lunches, sumptuous suppers & the chance to relax after a day exploring the surrounding countryside. In the summer months the dining space extends into our sun-filled walled garden for alfresco dining on small plates shared amongst friends. Meat & game comes from West Country farms & butchers, whilst fresh herbs are picked just a few steps away in The Crown kitchen garden.

Everything we do at the Crown is evaluated through asking ourselves whether or not it’ll make people return. We are aware that our business relies on people coming in time & time again. That’s why we’re generous with our offer, wholesome portions & a chance to try something new, whilst you’ll always find old classics & comforting pub bangers dotted throughout our menu like our wonderful hand raised pies & our amazing Sunday roasts.

Our food is hearty, interesting & delicious; we try to keep things simple & do them well.
