Located in a 14th century inn, in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside, The Rose and Crown restaurant serves locally sourced, seasonal British cuisine. Guests can sit out in the scenic garden surrounded by stunning landscapes, or in the cosy interior beside roaring fires.

The Rose and Crown menu features a delicious selection of gourmet British food, including the likes of crispy pig’s head with smoked Granny Smith purée, date confit and rocket salad. Local cask ales, ciders and fine wines are matched to complement the bold menu flavours.

Popular main courses at The Rose and Crown Trent include Dorset venison suet pudding and Cornish hake with braised lentils, chorizo and pimento. Warm treacle and orange tart with bourbon vanilla ice cream is just one of the deliciously indulgent desserts.

The Rose and Crown in Sherborne is an 8-minute drive from Yeovil Pen Mill Train Station.

    Lunch with two friends - very friendly, very relaxed and unhurried, delicious food and excellent service. One of us had the "light bite" fish and chips and two of us had calves' liver with bacon, kale and polenta.

    Absolutely lovely from start to finish. Hadn't been for a while because we'd had a bad experience a couple of years ago and there are so many other places to go! But the weather was gorgeous and their outside space is beautiful, so we decided to give it another chance. This time it was perfect. Sat outside in glorious weather, service was friendly and efficient and the food was fabulous. Fairly expensive, but worth it.

    Really interesting menu, excellent presentation, welcoming staff and lovely dining room. A real find for us , the sort of pub we would all love to have in a village.

    Beautiful location. Welcomed on arrival. Efficient and unobtrusive service. Cosy surroundings, lovely atmosphere. Excellent food from a varied but not overwhelming menu.
