Went 10 years ago with husband and found it overpriced and old fashioned. Made the mistake of giving it another chance with a group of 4 school mums-still same menu and still overpriced-whitebait cooked to a cinder. We shared 2 bar snacks for a starter and had 4 bar snacks as a main course, 6 pimms and 5 glasses of... More

Had a fabulous birthday lunch, the Suckling Pig is definitely well worth the visit alone. Not a cheap meal, but you get what you pay for in life. Will be back, thank you

Brilliant menu, good wines, professional friendly waiters. No rush - just enjoy the good food and wine. Very low beams in the original dining room. Quiet country location. Pleasant place to sit outside weather permitting. Always enjoyed every meal here.

Taken to this Inn by a friend when visiting a local art gallery.We were lucky to get the last table . We had a selection of soup and snacks all of which were delicious. I had an excellent pud. Despite being very busy the service was first class.

Yes, the pub itself is picture box stuff. I've not been in here for ten years despite living just a couple of miles away so I was looking forward to it but also concerned about the love/hate reviews. The garden looks lovely and if eating out on a summers days then it would probably be wonderful. The day had been... More

We were taken to this restaurant by our nephew and his wife when staying with them for a couple of nights. I feels very old inside, with beams, and very low ceilings in part of the pub. The service was good and it felt more like a fine dining restaurant than a pub. They coped with our diet fairly well... More

Quintessential old style English pub, on a sunny day you can't beat it. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Food however was awful the day we were there. Vegetable soup was a congealed gloop, chicken Kiev was deep fried to destruction. Other reviewers reported good food so maybe depends which chef is on - however at the prices charged it... More

We did a circular 4 mile walk around Compton and took in the stunning Watts cemetery chapel/crypt before submitting to the very friendly publican at the Withies Inn. Bar snack menu was outstanding. For Tuesday lunch - it was busy. Ploughmans, Quiche and Burgers all highly recommended. On our list to revisit!
