One of my family had a significant birthday at The Square & Compass recently & throughout the whole process of trying to make it a great success the landlord Chris couldn’t have been more obstructive if he tried.

The rooms are surprisingly large as is the bathroom which has an ample bath and a wet room shower. The bed is massive and extremely comfortable and there is lots of outside space for parking and areas to walk dogs. The staff at the pub were extremely friendly and the food was very good with ample portions. Bring an appetite!!...

Stayed here last year for one night whilst house hunting in the area. Lovely room, great evening meal and a full English breakfast to die for. Now live in a village up the road, but plan to return pretty soon.

We stayed here on a flying visit to the area. The room was great; really big (the bed was absolutely enormous) and it was helpful to have a separate shower and bath. The pub itself wasn't as impressive when we first entered - the decor looks a bit jaded - but the food was excellent. We had steak and ale...

They kindly booked us in later that evening. The service was very good and the food portions were amazing, we both went for the beer battered...
