We found this pub accidently by following a sign from the A30 and what a find! It was a traditional old English pub. It had a friendly welcome, a fire burning and a great menu. The food was very well cooked, interesting and there was a lot of choice. The children's menu had fewer choices, our son enjoyed his pasta... More

This thatched roofed idyllic rural pub icon is located in the heart of Wiltshire: picture perfect! And everything else ticks all boxes. Huge and glorious pub meals extraordinaire: wild mushrooms picked this morning followed by slow roasted lamb shoulder served with abundant caramelised beetroot and cauliflower and lima beans. Owner Alan a warmly humorous and engaging personality. They have a... More

My husband & I had lunch in this wonderful pub. The food was outstanding, the landlord & staff really friendly. This pub really is a Gem, & worth going the extra mile to try to find it. We cannot wait to visit again!!

A small pub with accommodation in a beautiful hamlet , for those who love peace and quiet this is the ideal spot. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful a pleasure to meet such lovely people. A good selection of beers and an even better menu. I have never had a better cooked breakfast at any place I have... More

A beautiful and well furnished room, quiet and light. The dinner in the pub was excellent and the wine was great. The people were friendly - it was altogether a wonderful stay and we were sad that they were booked for the next night because otherwise we would have added another day in Lower Chicksgrove.

Wonderful setting in a tiny village. Very quiet and rural. Lovely old pub with bags of character. Great rooms with lovely comfy beds. Food great with loads of choices. Excellent wines. Staff can't do enough for you. And they take dogs for free! Highly recommended.

I stayed at The Compasses Inn en route to Land's End and at the end of a long day's cycling would have accepted any welcome and a bed! What I received surpassed all expectations; a warm welcome with a comfortable, clean and spacious room all set within an extremely quiet and relaxing setting. Having rested up I was blown away...

We stayed at this inn as part of a walking tour. We were greeted upon arrival by proprietor Alan, who was very warm and friendly. Our room was a good size, with a couch and table, coffee service complete with KitKats, and a comfy but squeaky bed. The downside was no shower, only a bathtub with handheld shower head (in... More

After a long morning at Stonehenge and some confusing driving to drop off a fellow traveler on a nearby obscure lane, we literally stumbled on this inn at 13:30 on a Monday afternoon. We needed refreshing and surely this pub provided us with all we needed. The kitchen was open till 2:00 and the lamb burgers were tasty. The staff... More

I think if you get to find this place you should award your navigator a large drink as they will have earned it. Where do i start ? Its in a fantastic rural location, great food and fantastic beer. Also importantly for me dog friendly, which was very helpful. Room had a kingsize bed, TV, sofa, tea & coffee making... More
