We spent a night at the compasses. The room was so sweet with an ajoining bathroom. It was immaculate and had everything we needed. It was a real treat to stay in such an old pub, it had so much charm and athmosphere. The food was fantastic, we had a three course meal, with wine and drinks either side of... More

We had a wonderful evening with tasty food and good drinks and some bears. Like the origin atmosphere very much. surrounded from Beautifully countryside around. Nice location for having a perfect trip at the countryside (we have been fly fishing) and get some tasty meal after ;-)

What a great find "The compasses Inn" turned out to be. We chose this B&B for a 2 day break in Wiltshire. Be warned, it's not the easiest place in the world to find and the narrow roads leading to it are not for the faint hearted, but when you do arrive, you quickly realise it's worth it. The accommodation... More

This location was the second in a walking tour of SW England provided by Foot Trails. As mentioned in a couple of other reviews of our inns, this is primarily a pub with some room accommodations and suited us perfectly. The rooms were small and offered limited amenities which was expected considering the age of the building, hamlet and remote... More

I visited on a Sunday for the roast service. Our main courses were absolutely brilliant, my beef was nice and pink in the middle and there was plenty of meat, veg and potato. But the service was my main bug bear. We had to ask to order, and then when our desserts arrived we hadn't been given cutlery after waiting... More

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
