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...

Didn't realise it was a pub until right up close. Good beer and good food. We hadn't booked and there were no tables spare. We sat outside on a bench and enjoyed a lovely lunch. One or two problems with the Credit Card machine but left it that we would both check our statements. The staff were quite relaxed about...

Very friendly and helpful staff in a hidden gem! It is worth the gamble of having to brave a mile of single track road(with very few passing places) to reach this beautiful old pub which has so much character. The food was fantastic and the garden at the back idyllic! You could not ask for better hosts and their food...

Lovely old pub that is not to easy to find. Ate here two nights running, great food, try the Chicksgrove faggots, whole place, arancini, panna cotta pud. Portions are quite large, good value. Three or four real ales/cider to try. Garden to sit in on a sunny day. Great staff. Would recommend to eat and maybe we will stay overnight...

We stayed three nights in Plum Cottage. The owners had informed us that the cottage had one double and two "very small single rooms". Don't be put off, they are fine for a short stay. The cottage was lovely, all the amenities you need. And the beds were very comfortable. The pub restaurant serves good food in the evening. Breakfast...
