My wife and I had a lovely 3 course meal there this week. The food was excellent (the beer battered fish and chips were the best I've had) and the service was very good. The old place is looking good since it's recent refurbishment and I thoroughly recommend it.

Hotel had a large bar and restaurant, was well kept, clean and nicely decorated. Room was very comfortable, well equipped. Breakfast was excellent quality but the shortage of waiting staff was obviously causing issues - they are recruiting for more February not the time to sit outside but there is a lovely terrace. Staff were very friendly and helpful

Took a friend here. as nearby pub music had ridiculously loud music blasting for a weekday The Crown however is very well furnished and ideal to relax in talking with a friend Not knowing the evening venues of blandford this is a top place and the near by supermarket provides easy parking

Stayed for one night at the beginning of February to attend a dinner and dance. The first impression of a hotel is normally with the reception staff and the young girl on duty was lovely and handled the booking in process with the minimum of fuss. Our room was amazing full of 'quirky' character and very comfortable. Nice not to...

A late Christmas meal for the Dorset branch of the Road Haulage Association. 60 people had a 3 course evening meal. Food was all excellent as expected. Service was quick and very efficient for such a large group. Staff helpful and the whole evening went well. Highly recommend the Crown and in particular the Sealey Suite for a large function....

Probably the best pub meal I have ever had and all at very reasonable prices. The refurb has worked really well - the only (minor) downside being that it can get a bit quiet later in the evening now that the bar is on the other side of the corridor. Would definitely recommend
