For once the sat nav parked me right outside The accommodation is separate to the pub and extremely impressive I have to say the best I have stayed in so far. The rooms are spotless, bed is huge and comfy and the bath room equally as big with shower and bath complimentary toiletries included. Plenty of free tea and coffee...

We booked two rooms for an over night stay on our way to cornwall to break up the journey . The rooms are of a good size with nice big comfy bed . And if the pub is closed they bring drinks over to your room also dog friendly .

They are spacious, clean and attractive, with big comfortable beds and well sized bathrooms with a really good wet room shower. Staff at the place...

Once again, we found the whole atmosphere very relaxed with the friendly and welcoming owners and very attentive staff. The bedroom was spotless and so well equipped, with a modern wet room complete with complementary...

Another visit to the Square and Compass and another great meal. Lovely steak and ale pie, large portions and good value for money. All other meals were also very good. A great stopping point on the way to the South coast. Would definitely recommend!

Very overpriced for what you get. We stayed overnight after a wedding party. It is a shame because it has the potential to be really nice, but no thought is given to small details. The rooms are a nice size with a large comfortable bed but it was not spotless and no attention was given to the little things which...
