Visit the Compasses quite a few times, came across it about 10yrs ago whilst out on a motorbike run, don't think I would have found it otherwise! Very low ceilings, big roaring fire in the colder months, we had decided to go on a snowy Sunday, so didn't book like we normally do as we have to travel about 35 miles to get there, it was packed, but the landlord was very accommodating and found us a table, great Sunday roast, a very little complaint was not a lot of veg for 4, but no problem in asking for more... Great walk with the dog afterwards via a countryside path across a fields afterwards to round of the afternoon.

Good food and cosy atmosphere, big fire, excellent menu and good beer, off the beaten track - worth the detour

We live about 20 minutes from this superb country pub. We try to go a few times a year for special occasions and so does my son and wife.
It's always been good! Lovely flagged bar,low lighting, unobtrusive but excellent service and really good food. Recommended but tricky to find.

Great presentation, choice and flavours. Lovely sauces and good sized portions. A good variety of traditional pub meals and gourmet dining.

Ancient,tradtional thatched pub, tucked away in beautiful countryside. Good food (both hot e.g. mussels and cold e.g. ploughmans), beers and wines.Very welcoming for families and dogs.Worh booking a table as it is both popular and small.
