"A lovely place in Dorset"
A very pleasant stay, all the staff were very friendly breakfast was excellent, evening meals were freshly cooked and not out of the microwave. I would recommend the hot evening buffet on a Wednesday. The room was very clean and tidy, but could be a bit noisy due to traffic, but didn’t bother use over all a very enjoyable stay and would certainly return. Read less

"Shame about the road noise"
Having stayed at The Crown last year and being disturbed by the road noise we asked for a 'quiet room'. Disappointed to see that our room was again on the front and lorries etc rolled through all night.
The bath grouting is discolored by black mould, as it was last year.
Couldn't find a light above the bathroom mirror which made shaving/make-up application difficult. Room ready for a bit of refurb. Read less
Likes:
Good bed linen. Excellent breakfast. Excellent pub bar in the evening.
Dislikes:
There is no getting away from the road noise as there are no rooms on the back. Grubby tiles around the bath.

The Crown at Marnhull is steeped in history. It has been used as a pub and has been serving customers since the time of King Henry the eighth. The thatched part of the building dates back to the 16th century and has as far as possible remained untouched. A priest hole is still visable in the bar that linked the pub to the nearby St Gregory`s church. Thomas Hardy was a frequent visitor to The Crown and the pub features in his most famous novel, Tess of the D`urbervilles as ` The Pure Drop Inn` situated in the village of Marlot.(Marnhull).

Nowadays, The Crown boasts 5 en suite letting bedrooms. Spacious and fully equipped, huge fluffy towels, flat screen HD TV`s with freeview, stereo system, tea and coffee making facilities, room safe, free WIFI, power showers and deep roll top baths or a wet room supplied with toiletries.

In our pub we are open 11:30 - 3pm Monday to Friday, and all day at the weekends, you will find food served 12pm - 3pm and 6pm - 9pm. We use only the freshest local ingredients that Dorset`s fine larder has to offer. Our eggs are all free range, vegetables are used in season and we try to cut out food miles by buying fresh and local. All our dishes are homemade and cooked to order.

The main bar `The Pure Drop Inn` is open all day serving quality real ales, wines and soft drinks or even just a coffee by the roaring log fire.
