Stayed in the room adapted for disabled. Room is excellent with loads of room to move around in a wheelchair. Bathroom brilliant as well with good access. Bed is massive and easy to transfer to from my wheelchair. Owners and staff fantastic and will serve meals in your room if you can't get across to the main building. Service and... More

A lovely spacious room with two huge single beds, though sadly the mattresses were on the soft side and had a definite centre body hollow! However, lovely quite location meant an excellent nights sleep. The full English breakfast was huge and very tasty, but it took absolutely AGES to arrive, and we ended up having our toast and marmalade before... More

I’m going to review the Square & Compass with a slightly different perspective. It’s true the rooms are really quite nice and the very large bed was truly one of the best I’ve slept in. However where I differ from the other reviews is the Pub part. We went into the pub as it opened at 6:30 and so I... More

Another couple of stop overs at this pub set on the top of Windmill Hill and once again we were not disappointed. Good pub grub as always but its the rooms that are the star. Spacious , comfortable, modern and very clean accommodation. Always welcoming to our labrador. Friendly and very helpful management and staff, We will keep coming back

We attended a wedding here in May. The whole day seemed laid back and informal yet the ceremony, food and evening were very efficiently organised. The ceremony, dinning and evening entertainment took place in a renovated barn which was nicely decorated. We stayed in one of the eight lodges. A large, clean room with a huge bed and a very...

Booked to see squeeze in the barn. And what a great time we had. Venue and pub are excellent with great organization. A proper pub with friendly hardworking staff. Stayed overnight in the clean spacious stables. After a night of rock n roll and a thick head we where given a hearty breakfast before heading home. A credit to the... More

My husband and I stayed on Saturday 18th April and were very impressed! The owners couldnt be more accommodating. We needed a place to stay having been at a party and it was not a problem at all that we arrived at 1am in the morning! Lovely large room and comfy bed...just felt a shame we couldnt stay for longer... More

We booked a one night stay on a B & B basis at The Square and Compass and couldn't fail to be impressed. The property proudly displays its 4 star AA sign on entry to the generous sized car park which was tidy and well kept. We were made very welcome by the bar staff and owner and shown to... More

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
