We have eaten here on a number of occasions and the food has always been good. There will be something for everyone on the menu. The all day breakfast will just do that - it will keep you going all day long. Every dish is a delight and will not disappoint you.

We visited The Axe & Compass on day 2 of a cycle trip. We needed a quiet venue and the terraced chalets at the back of the pub were quiet, just the noise of cars leaving the pub but all quiet by 11pm.

My sister and I had lunch at the axe recently. The ham and eggs is to die for!!! Such a huge portion it was tempting to ask for a doggie bag for the delicious ham they served. Just too much of it to see off in one go😉 Will certainly be going back ASAP.

Internet is nonexistent and TV signal intermittent apparently because of a nearby wind turbine. In-the-room breakfast limited to three small Kellogg cereals of...

The room was clean and tidy with all of the simple things that one needs for a couple of nights stay. The bed was on wheels and moved around all night which was kinda annoying. The staff were helpful and friendly and the food in the pub was excellent.

I stayed here for four nights on a business trip and found the accommodation clean, warm and comfortable. The room was in the lodge at the rear of the bar/restaurant and had a newly fitted shower room which I was told was the start of a full refurbishment of the lodge. The guys who run the place couldn't have been...
