About
Description
Situated in the beautiful village of Puncknowle, close to Chesil beach and five miles from Bridport and West Bay (the fictional town of Broadchurch in the popular ITV Drama), The Crown is a traditional thatched 16th More 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. The en-suite room, with its old beams and its windows looking out over the old church, ensures you are relaxed and comfortable. You may be greeted by the bells ringing on a Sunday but, other than that, you should sleep peacefully! - Oh, and if you want to bring the whole family, dogs are welcome in the room too! Less

There are plenty of walks in the area including the South Dorset Ridgeway - 17.5 miles but you only need walk part of it. Up to Hardy's monument is nice with great views. We saw plenty of dog walkers on that path.
