Events & Functions

We can cater for your function or event!

We are close to the Guildhall, in Market Street, Poole – so we are an ideal location for any celebration or special occasion. Similarly, with such a central location, we are just a stones throw from the port of Poole, which means that we’re ideally situated for the ferry over to Cherbourg.


Having a special occasion at the Guildhall? Why not celebrate with friends and family at the Crown, where our skilled chefs can cook the perfect accompanying meal to help celebrate your big day!

Birthdays and Special Occasions

Enjoy a hearty meal with friends and family, whether it's a birthday, an anniversary, or something romantic! We can cater for large groups, so book with us and we'll take care of you.

Corporate Functions

Want to treat your work colleagues to lunch? We can cater for large groups with sit-down meals, buffets, and private functions - just send us an email as we can help!

We currently have a number of money-saving deals on food at The Crown.

Why Choose The Crown?

We’ve been lucky to have received some great comments from people who have dined at The Crown Hotel. Below are some reviews that have been taken from TripAdvisor recently.

Fantastic meal and drinks
We visited the Crown for the first time on Saturday afternoon for lunch with our 5 year old daughter. There was clearly a lot of effort and love put into each dish we ordered, and the majority was home made. Even the bread was all home made, and our meal came out with complimentary breads, oil and olives which was a really kind touch. Annoyed to hear a table at the same time complain the food was cold- I can assure the chef and staff that day that this was not the case for us and everything was just perfect. We will definitely be returning regularly!
Sunday lunch
Best roast in Dorset - consistently fantastic at every visit since last discovering the gem last year. Took over 20 friends for a meal and everyone loved it. Food fabulous, service great, friendly and welcoming. Any where else for a roast is disappointing after the crown. Booking recommended!

Love It Here
I’ve been here a few times, both with my boyfriend and my family, and we love it. The food is always delicious and the people are friendly. It doesn’t look much from the outside but I would definitely recommend eating here at least once in your life! Lunch or dinner, the standard of food is always extremely high
Delicious Lunch
We had an amazing lunch today at the Crown. Super friendly staff and delicious food that is very reasonable. Very tasty indeed!

Service was exceptional which made our visit one of the best places I've been to in a long time. Well done to Sean, Patrick and the rest of the team!!! 5 star guys!!!
