What an amazing little place, the food is absolutely superb and you definitely get your monies worth. Gluten free fish and chips in a proper solid batter is the best ever and something that is a real treat. The mussels in sauce were also fantastic!...More

Under new management from the 26th of September 2016, the new tenants are here to rediscover the charm and beauty of The Crown. It is situated in the beautiful village of Puncknowle, close to Chesil beach and five miles from Bridport and West Bay (The fictional 'Broadchurch' in the popular ITV drama). The Crown is a traditional thatched 16th century Inn serving home-cooked food, real ales and a great selection of other drinks. Friendly and welcoming, The Crown is popular with walkers, families and with dog owners, who's four legged friends are welcomed with open paws inside the comfortable pub with its roaring log fires. Leather sofas and traditional pub games entice you to relax and enjoy your drink or food. Regularly changing with the seasons and with new produce, The Crown's menus are of the highest quality, with hearty flavours of good traditional British food. Wherever possible the kitchen sources produce locally for use not only in its main menus, but also in its regularly changing specials and desserts.In the summer, there is a lovely garden, overlooking the Bride Valley, for you to relax in the sunshine, savouring a long, cool drink. Its mature shrubs and lovely views, offer a peaceful world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. For those travelling, you might consider booking their en-suite room for the night - with its windows looking out over the old church you may be greeted by the bells ringing on a Sunday but, other than that, you should sleep peacefully! Of course, for those of you who want to include the whole family in your stay, the room is dog friendly. Since November 2013 the pub is proud to incorporate the village shop in its premises selling local goods, home-made food, fresh fruit and vegetables and much more.
