I came on a Friday night for a weekend with my son. The first night, we were kept awake by nearby campers until 3am. We set out the next day and when we returned in the afternoon a large group had set up their tents within a foot of ours, surrounding us on all sides. Their cars were parked around... More

This is the third time I have camped on the Square and Compass Campsite. I think it is quite good value and the landlord/staff are friendly. Facilities are basic and fine if the site is not busy, I guess the queue for showers could get quite long when it is busy. ideal for Campers happy to rough it a little,... More

Hi, we, the Micro Maniacs "bubble car" owners club, held a rally there over the weekend of June 5th to 8th 2014. We camped on the flat site opposite the pub which even though it had rained very heavily it did not hold too much water. There are no electric hook ups but that did not effect us. Good clean... More

Fab landlady & landlord and staff too! Best Fish & Chips in the area and they definitely look after their beer. Good value for money. You can also do a bit of Water rafting on weekends for a bit of fun too. Highly recommend the monthly Open Mic night too. Great atmosphere a real home from home

Clearly a simple and basic establishment. I opted to order what I considered a safe option, tuna mayonnaise jacket potato. "Mind yourself the plate is not" if only it was. The potato was warm at best, under cooked. My friends jacket potato was still frozen on the inside. The pint was good. Drink here don't expect good food here.

We visited the Square and Compass for a short family break, the Landlord and Landlady could not do enough to make us feel at home, nice cozy room, unlimited hot water, and amazing food in the pub at very reasonable prices. We could not fault the breakfasts or the attitude of the hosts, I believe this is a relatively undiscovered... More

Stayed here on their campsite for the first time, upon arrival thought it was a lovely setting and possibly the first of many visits. Paid for pitch and bar staff were ok then went to pitch. First meeting with owner was when he came over and asked for our ticket to show we paid, no "welcome" no "hello" no "have... More

We were looking for a b&b near a campsite, as my dad camps but me n my partner like a bit more luxury (my mum passed away recently and we wanted to be nearby). We found the square and compass and stayed for 2 nights in May, the campsite is directly opposite. Rooms are basic but very comfortable and clean,... More
