A charming coaching inn at the heart of Blandford Forum

Immerse yourself in centuries of history (as well as plenty of modern day comforts) at the Crown Hotel. We’re a winning choice for locals and visitors alike, thanks to our characterful spaces, fine food and warm hospitality. Enjoy a memorable meal in our handsome dining room, its walls lined with paintings echoing its gorgeous views over the nearby Stour Meadows. Or opt for a pint in our wood-panelled bar or manicured beer garden.

Our Menus

Here at the Crown Hotel we take our food seriously, whether it’s a generously-portioned classic Sunday roast, a tempting light lunch, or a memorable evening meal for a special occasion. Our chefs work with seasonal ingredients to reinvigorate traditional pub food, offering familiar favourites alongside imaginative fine dining dishes. That means hand-cut chips, sumptuous specials, and luscious puds you won’t want to share.

Our coffees

You’re guaranteed a decent brew at The Crown Hotel, because we take making coffee just as seriously as we take pouring the perfect pint. Our ‘Rocket Espresso’ is an 100% Arabica blend from our friends at Extract Coffee Roasters. It’s delicious as well as ethical, with a natural sweetness complemented by full-bodied notes of chocolate and caramel.

Our beers

Drink in the taste of the Dorset countryside by sampling our Badger beers, which were first brewed by local farmer Charles Hall in 1777. Created from hops, malted barley, and pure spring water that’s naturally filtered through the chalk downs of Dorset, they’re a firm favourite. At The Crown, we offer a full, distinctive and delicious range, including our new Outland beers, which are imaginatively flavoured, and far from ordinary.

Stay at The Crown Hotel

Whether you’re planning a family adventure, a business trip, or a romantic break for two, we’re looking forward to welcoming you. Our dog-friendly rooms mean there’s no need to leave your pooch at home, while our family rooms are perfect for all ages: just chat to our team to design your perfect stay.
