After reading a review on this website I felt appalled how some people can stoop so low. A comment which included photos left me gob smacked. Some people have no time and simply go out of their way to find problems. I stayed at The Square and Compass this month and found it outstanding. The staff were wonderful and made... More

Had a really lovely stay at this place when we stopped off on the way down to Devon. The rooms were spacious and clean with big beds! Food in the pub was great and breakfast was also very good. The staff were really attentive and happy to help. Look forward to visiting again soon!

I have just returned from a second stay at the Square and Compass Stables and would like to highly recommend the accommodation. Rooms are large, immaculately clean, as on my previous stay, and well equipped, I am at a loss as to how the reviewer below could have found such problems with the standards of the cleanliness, as on both...

Stayed in what appeared at first glance to be a clean and modern room with en-suite. Lovely newish stable block type accommodation in pub grounds. Fantastic bed & linen. The trouble started when my book stuck to the bedside table! Wiped it clean then started noticing "other stuff", yuk. Dog hairs in all the draws too. Lampshades absolutely coated in... More

Surprised that this guest went to so much trouble to pull out the extremely heavy almost unmoveable 6'6" bed in order to take these pictures. More

Stayed while on business in the area. Good welcome, very good accommodation, free internet, plentiful parking. Good restaurant / bar, and the food was of good quality, with more than enough choice. Also enjoyed a good freshly made breakfast. All in all, very good, well worth what I was charged. In this area, give it a go.

Lovely room. Slightly cold on entering but soon remedied by highering up radiator. Ideal surroundings. Breakfast well worth the price and food hot when served. Staff very friendly and not too imposing

The staff were very friendly, pleasant and helpful, although if they had remembered to offer us pudding after our meal they might have got a bit more money out of us! The room was comfortable and clean and very spacious. The meal portions were very generous and the food was nice. Perfectly acceptable for the price. Unfortunately there was quite... More

We stayed a night whilst on a business trip to Chard. The pub food and ales were great and the room itself was clean and quiet. Breakfast was included and was excellent and the service was likewise. Would definitely stay here again if I had the chance - and maybe catch one of the bands that play there
