Stayed 2 nights, one double room for myself and husband, one twin for the children. Very impressed with size of rooms, a modern purpose built stable style block of rooms. Standard of cleanliness was great, and the huge bed was super comfortable. Ditto the twin beds next door. Spotless and spacious bathrooms too, perfect mini toiletries, decent quality towels. Great...

I believe this is the essence of a good pub. It was surprisingly quiet at noon when I arrived. Three friendly locals were the only other customers. I had a superb cauliflower cheese served with he optional bacon and mushrooms and red hot garlic bread. I washed it down with well kept St. Austell Tribute. Service was pleasant and efficient....

We were in Lyme Regis for a few days and used at the Square & Compass as our base. What a find! Very good rooms in the 'stables' but these were no Donkeys or mangers in sight. There was a wise man though- the Owner who was full of tips on the local area and ensured we got a table... More

In my last review I gave it a one star rating,,,, this was a mistake and was definitely meant to be five stars so sorry if you were confused. I stayed with 5 colleagues and all had good reports of their rooms and stay.

We were looking for somewhere to stay around Taunton, and the usual chain hotels were working out quite expensive so we started looking for B&Bs. This one had good reviews and the menu looked good too. We found it easily, and were welcomed when we arrived and shown our room. We were asked if we wanted a drink, as the... More

Stopped on the way to Appledore (Devon). Arrived during the afternoon, parked outside the room, and we were approached by a lady (turned out to be the owner) asking if we needed a drink. Very soon we had 2 pints of excellent beer. The room itself was marvellous - very spacious with a huge bed. Dinner was excellent, although portions... More

We stayed overnight again on our way to Devon. Again a lovely welcome, same massive, comfortable beds, and a stunning breakfast. Room was very clean, lots of room, car parked right outside the room. A nice lady behind the bar recommended some Stones Ginger wine for my wife who was feeling a little under the weather and it really did... More

Lovely property and warm friendly staff. Room was large and really comfortable making it excellent value. I didn't have time to sample the food but would have liked to. Only down side for me was the wet room floor! Remember to take your towel from the bed before entering the wet room. I had to go back for mine and... More
