With each and every occasion different; an intimate gathering for four or a big celebration for over 100-150, the team at The Rose and Crown Trent has one aim in mind to make your occasion memorable. The pub has different sizes of rooms - small and intimate, roomy enough to hold a real celebration, or outside in the beautiful peaceful garden in an impressive marquee. The options are all very different.

The inn is situated next to St Andrews Church in the immaculate village of Trent. The inn, church and village alike have a long and varied history from medieval times. A few miles away lies the market town of Sherborne famed for its schools, Abbey and architecture. Rolling Dorset hills and the world renowned Jurassic coast lie to the south. To the east are the tranquil Somerset levels, whilst to the west is Stonehenge and Salisbury plain. The city of Bath is only an hour's trip to the north.
