"Missing Marnhull"
My fiancee and I stayed at the crown just a couple days after I had proposed to her in the Cotswolds(Dursley). Her grandparents had a B&B in that town as well for decades, just 30 seconds from The Crown. Her parents were married in St. Gregory's Church, and this was my first visit to England. The Crown was my favorite place we stayed during our entire trip. Monty and Gemma were wonderful hosts and we had a great time chatting with them and some of the locals over Guinness and cocktails.

Likes:
Everything. The beautiful town, the quaint atmosphere of The Crown, and the delicious full English breakfast that was cooked by Monty on Monday morning. The bedrooms were beautiful and elegant!
Dislikes:
Yes. We weren't able to stay longer!!

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 7 en suite letting bedrooms. Spacious and fully equipped, huge fluffy towels, flat screen HD TV`s with Freeview, 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 12:00pm - 11:30pm and you will find food served 12pm - 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 from first principle.

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.
