In the village of Marnhull, nestling in the Blackmore Vale in North Dorset, the Crown Inn has offered rest and refreshment to visitors for centuries. Famously, the pub features in the Thomas Hardy’s novel ‘Tess of the d’Urbervilles’ as the ‘Pure Drop Inn’. The original plank and muntin wooden walls, the priest hole and flagstone flooring add to its unique character and charm. Today, it continues to provide its guests with warm hospitality in a cosy and timeless setting.
The Crown’s traditional British pub menu, range of draught Badger Beers from Dorset and its seven comfortable en-suite letting bedrooms make it the perfect retreat from ‘the madding crowd’ for any modern-day visitors.
