Always have been a great fan as food is consistently good and the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. Even when very busy you never have to shout across the table!! Sunday lunch did not disappoint , all the family enjoyed the food and the service was absolutely perfect, in previous visit sometimes the service was , at times ,slightly 'iffy'... More

This restaurant is one of the very best we have been to. The food was cooked to perfection and I especially liked the fact that it is nearly all locally sourced. Lovely atmosphere and spotless and the prices are very reasonable. Wiltshire team

This is my favourite place to eat out as everything has been thought through. I had the steak for my main course and it was perfectly cooked. There's no music drowning out your conversation and I really cannot find fault with anything.

Excellent service and friendliness from all staff, provided details of meals which contained gluten when asked-which was less than a handful across the whole menu. Food was excellent and very tasty. Very clean and a nice quiet setting, decent soul/disco music was played during my visit-which gave the place a relaxed feel.

We were taken here by a relative for lunch when visiting them. We asked for a bottle of champagne but were told they only had Moet & Chandon or Freixenet,(which is a Cava!)None of us like M & C so we asked for Veuve Cliquot or similar but the young lady came back and told us they were sold out!!!!...

Haven't been to the Three Compasses for quite a while & we were disappointed that it appears to have gone a little down-hill. Our meals were OK, but there were a few 'niggles' that need to be mentioned. Our group were placed at a table, in the corner, next to the fireplace. One of the overhead spotlights was 'out' so...

Love the atmosphere at this restaurant. It is cosy/comfortable and a warm welcome. Interesting menu and I love the salt beef starter.

Tried the Three Compasses for Saturday Lunch. They offer two course for £9.95 or three courses for £12.95, although a portion of vegetables (if needed) is an extra. The food was nicely presented and excellent hearty value, all piping hot and we left full and contented on a rathe co l d and wet April day.

Our reservation grew from 6 to 12!...It was Saturday evening and the restaurant was full. We all enjoyed a fantastic evening full of good food and plenty of wine. Service was impeccable. A thoroughly excellent night!

Thank lisa h
