Great hospitality from arrival, huge bed that provided a great sleep, in room facilities ( lots of coffee and tea etc), comfortable and spacious room and all followed by great traditional breakfast. Plus a quiet rural location.

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

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...
