Visited here for the first time in several years and was pleased to see the same chef/owner and the same quality of food. All items cooked well and nicely presented. Prices not a lot more than in some pubs but a real upgrade in dining experience.

As always have enjoyed a lovely meal here, Gorgeous food well presented and all served by attentive and welcoming staff. Have never been dissapointed when I have visited here, have been with a large group, a couple of friends and to celebrate a special occasion with my husband.

Went to the three compasses for our Christmas meal, overall the place was good, homely and nice inside. We sat down for our meal when the waitress got a little bit of an attitude as some of us couldn't remember what they had picked, I had a duck leg which was good but quite greasy, my girlfriend had the roast...

I always enjoy my visits here. The food is hearty rather than Nouvelle Cuisine, which is fine by me. We went on a cold night in November and it was warm and relaxing inside even with the odd gust of wind when someone came through the door. The staff were very good and they dealt with my food allergy just... More

Met up here yesterday with friends I had trained with more years ago that seems possible, and really enjoyed relaxing and chatting together over a delicious and very reasonable set lunch. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. Worth booking (we did) as it seemed full and popular.

We went for Sunday lunch and the restaurant was pretty full. It took a while to take our order but the staff were friendly. We were then given a homemade bread roll which was good but very salty. We had to wait 50 minutes for our food and everybody around us seemed to be getting theirs first! When it did... More

The restaurant is beautifully decorated and very clean and bright. The service is friendly and efficient. Although the food was not to my personal liking (I would have liked some lighter choices as everything came with sauces and mashed potato), it was well cooked, nicely presented and good size portions. Everyone enjoyed their meal and it was good value for... More

We are regulars at the Three Compasses so do not always think to write a review. However on Friday evening we were a party of seven with our daughter and her friends and we were reminded who good the 3Cs can be. We ordered from all corners of the menu and the food was universally well received and appreciated with... More
