Stayed over on a Saturday night and took advantage of the great food in the excellent pub with cosy and clean rooms. Would like to return in Spring/Summer to take full advantage of the country location.

We came into the pub and found it quite dark, but we found this only added to the atmosphere. First appearance was the age of the place, you could only find this sort of pub in England. We asked of the age of the building and it was about 14th century with some of the roof beams allegedly from some...

We booked two nights in Plum cottage - genius to have a three bedroomed cottage right next to the pub. We enjoyed our stay there, wood burning stove (with wood etc provided) and all. We enjoyed the pub even more. Looking like it last had a makeover around 1453 (ie immensely characterful with no hint of any kind of corporate...

We really wanted to get away and have a New Year break and when we found this place it looked perfect, especially as they take dogs! Arrived on 30th in good time for the pub's New Year party, which we'd also booked in advance. The staff and the owner (Alan) were really friendly and accommodating from the start. Our rooms...

Recommended by locals we visited this lovely pub for a family birthday and catch up. The 14th century pub was authentic, charming without being over the top and on a cold winter day there was a roaring log fire and we had a warm welcome from the manager. We were made very welcome by friendly staff, wine was reasonably priced...

Husband and I chose this accommodation after reading very positive comments on Trip Advisor. The comments didn't disappoint. The Inn itself is situated in a small hamlet with delightful surroundings. You won't hear loud music in the Inn or be distracted by a TV. It's just locals and guests indulging in conversation. The interior is characterful and charming with a...

We loved our all too brief stay at the Compasses Inn. This is a quiet, country Inn with a lovely restaurant and four adjacent rooms. Nothing fancy but lovely people, service and food. The location was in the center of a beautiful landscape. The rooms were large and comfortable.

Great pub which well deserves the accolade of being in the top ten in the Good Pub Guide 2017. Elegant and comfortable room, good linen and lovely bed. Food was quite excellent, both dinner and breakfast although I would like to have had some fresh fruit/ yogurt to start. Very friendly and efficient staff and guests and lovely atmosphere in...
