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.
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.
Christmas at The Crown Hotel
Make your yuletide extra merry by booking a festive meal with us. Our wonderfully cosy pub restaurant will be decked out for the season, while our menu serves up all your Christmas and New Year favourites.
Just make sure you book in advance, because tables will get snapped up faster than mince pies on Christmas Eve.
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.
