I stayed locally for a week in the summer, and needed an internet connection to get some work done - so I rolled up to the Crown - the sort of lovely Cotswold inn that Americans go all weak-kneed about. The new young manager and his staff made me feel really welcome and accommodated me brilliantly, giving me my own 'office' in the atmospheric wood-panelled Hardy Room for a few weekday afternoons. Nothing was too much trouble. With a few nice drops of real ale on tap, some good food and an attractive garden, this one's a winner, and well worth spending a bit of time in to soak up the atmosphere.

Visited this pub last week and what a refreshing difference! The current landlord has improved this pub dramatically with sensible menu choices and more importantly sensible pricing. Good live music every week and great to see the pub buzzing again with a healthy group of locals. This pub suffered from the previous landlord, who seemed more occupied making sure his wine glass was full rather than listening to the customers and improving the business. Good work, will return.

(The picture is of the Crown on Shaftesbury High Street (6 miles away), not the Marnhull pub.) Changes landlords regularly. On the minus side, it is a Hall & Woodhouse pub; on the plus is that they try quite hard.

Lovely pub, great staff, excellent food friendly efficient landlady, but the landlord [Phil] is a scruffy unprofessional who lets to whole pub down. Better having our pub open, but I do wish Hall & Woodhouse would take more care with who they appoint.

Delighted to report that the Crown achieves a rare double - it's a lovely pub AND an excellent hotel. The new owners have done a fantastic job.
Very historic, atmospheric interior (open fire, flagstones etc) - and the rooms have been really well done up. Friendly, and knowledgable, staff. The food is v, good as well. We had a great break there before Christmas and will definitely be back.
