We stayed at the Compasses for 3 nights in late June/early July. Lovely, peaceful location, fine room (creaky bed), good food and real ale. The only reason why I give the inn 4 stars rather than 5 is the fact that standard breakfast time does not start until 9.00am! For those wishing to use this as a base for touring... More

An absoultly loverly and quaint Olde English pub and restaurant nestled in a totally silent location. Beautiful and peaceful. The pub and restaurant are nostalgic. Food in the restaurant is excellent. Good beers and wines, very enjoyable port! We stayed at the pub in bedroom one. Thick walls, oak beams, thatched roof. A dream to many. Staff are helpfull and...

My husband and I went to the Compasses for lunch last Saturday. The food was amazing and the staff really helpful. We had not visited for some time but only because we have been busy doing other things. We decided that we need to visit more often. Can't think of another establishment within miles which has the same high standards.

Very comfortable accommodations, fabulous food, and friendly staff. A very good start to our inn to inn walk in southern England. We arrived after the pub stopped serving lunch, but they put together a Ploughman's for us that was wonderful. The view from our room, out onto a green, wildflower studded hillside was lovely.

I stayed for two nights in May on business in the little cottage to the right of the photograph (Plumb Cottage) it was very clean and welcoming, as was the owner and all staff. The cottage has three bedrooms and sleeps four. Downstairs is a well equipped kitchen and family lounge with a large feature fireplace. The cottage has free... More

We were recommended to call here by friends and also a go rating in our good pub guide. Type the postcode into your satnav and you almost get there, but not quite. It's down a narrow lane. Anyway, we got there and it really is as good as others have reviewed. A menu and weekday lunch time specials board all... More

If we can ever find this place again we will b returning with more people!! We had a delightful Sunday lunch on a day when we were driving aimlessly looking for somewhere interesting to eat! The compasses inn delivered just that! Lovely quirky pub, with high quality food, the soup in particular was something special and served with homemade bread!... More

We recently stayed overnight en route to Cornwall. As always, our stay was first class. Excellent food, lovely staff and a very clean and comfortable room. Perfect! We will be back again as soon as the opportunity arises.

We stayed two nights here whilst on a bike ride and loved the room which was large, warm and with a big bathroom and warm fluffy towels. Do not be alarmed with the noise coming up from the pub below because once it has shut it is quiet. It is out in the middle of nowhere but easy to find... More

We had arranged to meet some friends for lunch and thought we could find it without using Sat Nav - wrong!! Tisbury was easy enough to get to but from there on, there were no signs whatsoever. Even after asking the only human being we saw for mile (a postwoman) we spent about an hour driving up and down similar... More
