We stayed 4 nights this time, at The Square and Compass Windmill Hill. My husband and I stay in pubs a lot, and the rooms here really are of an excellent standard for the money. They are spacious, clean and attractive, with big comfortable beds and well sized bathrooms with a really good wet room shower. Staff at the place...

We recently had another enjoyable stay at this country pub, having watched a band in 'The Barn', the excellent music/ wedding venue situated on site. Once again, we found the whole atmosphere very relaxed with the friendly and welcoming owners and very attentive staff. The bedroom was spotless and so well equipped, with a modern wet room complete with complementary...

Another visit to the Square and Compass and another great meal. Lovely steak and ale pie, large portions and good value for money. All other meals were also very good. A great stopping point on the way to the South coast. Would definitely recommend!

Very overpriced for what you get. We stayed overnight after a wedding party. It is a shame because it has the potential to be really nice, but no thought is given to small details. The rooms are a nice size with a large comfortable bed but it was not spotless and no attention was given to the little things which...

One of my family had a significant birthday at The Square & Compass recently & throughout the whole process of trying to make it a great success the landlord Chris couldn’t have been more obstructive if he tried. On arrival at the venue we told numerous times that they do so many weddings a year there, but virtually anything we...

The rooms are surprisingly large as is the bathroom which has an ample bath and a wet room shower. The bed is massive and extremely comfortable and there is lots of outside space for parking and areas to walk dogs. The staff at the pub were extremely friendly and the food was very good with ample portions. Bring an appetite!!...

Stayed here last year for one night whilst house hunting in the area. Lovely room, great evening meal and a full English breakfast to die for. Now live in a village up the road, but plan to return pretty soon.

This is the first time I have visited here since June 2016. I feel it is not as good as it used to be. Food was fine after a very long wait also had to ask for the vegetables as they did not arrive. Waitress did not understand great English. Only the bar maid and one waitress for a Saturday...

We stayed here on a flying visit to the area. The room was great; really big (the bed was absolutely enormous) and it was helpful to have a separate shower and bath. The pub itself wasn't as impressive when we first entered - the decor looks a bit jaded - but the food was excellent. We had steak and ale...
