"We had a lovely stay, the staff were great, the food excellent and the rooms very comfortable."
We stayed two nights and have a lovely time. The pub has a lovely atmosphere with a popular dog friendly bar and welcoming and friendly staff. The nice restaurant area was good and the food excellent with large portions and a good selection on the menu. Our bedroom was lovely with good beds and a large bathroom. The room was by the road but we were not disturbed by the traffic. We look forward to stay again. Read less

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.
