David & Karin welcome you to the Crown Inn & hope you enjoy your visit.

Karin had a very successful award winning pub for 16 years, followed by a restaurant at a Hampshire Golf Club for over 10 years. David was Steward at a Hampshire Golf Club followed by Steward for the British Legion.  Both of us having been in the hospitality trade for many years, decided to return to the West Country where we came from & took over The Crown Inn on 6th January 2016. The village of Uploders is a lovely place to be, with very friendly people who have made us extremely welcome & this feeling is passed on to our customers.

We redecorated & refurbished the Bar & Dining room, it has a lovely warm cottage feel to it. Why not pop in & see it for yourself.

Whatever the weather, take a visit to the Crown  either to eat or drink inside a traditional West Dorset Country Pub, or enjoy the large enclosed garden.   Our cosy Bar is warm & welcoming.

The Crown is family run with the help of our excellent team of ladies. David in the Bar serving 3 changing Palmers Real Ales, Wines, Spirits or  Soft drinks & Karin who is the Chef,  preparing only the freshest of mouth watering food,  all home -cooked along with an excellent selection of homemade desserts.  Our menu changes frequently, but the usual favourites are almost always available.  Karins homemade Old Fashioned Steamed Puddings are a big favourite when on the menu.

Since taking over the Crown Inn we have received the TRIPADVISOR EXCELLANCE AWARD 2016, 2017 & 2018 plus TASTE OF THE WEST AWARD SILVER 2018. David has also received two Beer awards for the past 2 years.

We have a Village Dart friendly evening once a month through the Winter with tasty nibbles  supper for the players.

There are also three Crown Golf Days through the year. April, September & November (Turkey Trot) win your Christmas Turkey from a local supplier. Posters are up early & Facebook page showing information on where & what time. This is usually played & back to Pub for Presentation & Supper. ~All prizes are supplied by ourselves~ Its a brilliant day & well supported, should you be interested we would ask you to contact us & leave your details so we can add you  to teams our  list.


Should you be planning a family gathering & require  information or a specially prepared menu, please give us a ring & we will advise on what we can do for you.

Whether you are local to the area or visiting beautiful Dorset, a warm, friendly welcome awaits you from David, Karin and the team.
