We took my 90 year old father out to lunch and asked for a quiet table which we were given. The service was good and my father was very pleased with his delicious plaice.
Outstanding meal, lovely atmosphere, would definitely come again
Poor service. Put in a cold tent that smelt like a farm yard.
An excellent menu with beautifully presented food in an environment which always felt safe and cautious.
The Compasses is one of our favourites, we're not local but always visit when in the area.
Friendly staff, good food and lovely unpretentious atmosphere. Please keep it like this.
I had fish pie which was just how it should be. Full of fish with a superb sauce. My companion had the belly of pork which he stated was excellent.
Service very good.
We stayed at the Compasses and dined there on both nights. The food was delicious and the house wine a great accompaniment. we would definitely return for more asap!
One of the best evening meals during our seven day stay in the area. It was worth the fairly long journey for us. Very professionally run and friendly welcome. We felt comfortable in our little corner with candlelight in the main restaurant, but had the choice of a marquee should we have preferred this in these troubled times. Fish pie superb!
Ambiance perfect for our age group (70+) with a full house of diners nicely spaced.
Best meal out for a long time....,obvious quality ingredients, delicious taste combinations. Full marks to the team👍
The. Impasses is a lovely thatched pub in a fabulously remote hamlet. I have been going there for special occasions such as showing visitors a lovely place, for over 45 years. It is well worth the drive out.
The waiting staff were sweet and they were very obliging. I had a starter as my meal and they were very happy to oblige!
Of course one needs to book currently and food is served in a marquee at the back of the pub - the inside of which is beautiful and very historical.
I would recommend both for food and service!
Great to find a lovely pub/restaurant in such an out of the way place. The food was really tasty and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
I would certainly recommend this place.
Would certainly recommend booking....very friendly staff.....excellent food....well priced.
Solicitous and amiable service. Satisfactory choice of food and drink. Quiet and interesting ambiance. Would definitely patronise again when in the area. Enjoyed lunch very much. Food well cooked and tasty. Good selection of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks.
Food was great. Waiting staff were sweet. Very happy.
Excellent food, great little pub tucked away, friendly and welcoming staff
Great innovative food; well presented, flavoured and delivered.
Lovely welcoming staff and lovely ambiance
Almost like pre-covid days - so nice to have a bit of normality in such difficult times
lunchtime visit, friendly staff, great food and service
Beautiful setting and delicious food with attentive staff
We ate out whilst the Eat Out to Help Out offer was on. The food was excellent as always. The staff were very polite and friendly and we had a really lovely evening.
Service a little slow but good food and a pleasant atmosphere.
Delicious lunch again - twice in one week! Always a pleasure to go there
really wonderful food. Pleasant family atmosphere. Well done.
We went as part of the 'Eat out to help out' scheme, so very good value for money! Good food and service.
Delicious food, great little pub
Excellent food and efficient friendly staff. Meal was served promptly and plates cleared afterwards.
Lovely environment, great food and service even though it was busy when we went.
We sat in the marquee as the pub was full. However we were not forgotten or neglected. Food was good, service excellent. Wins by the glass very expensive.
All perfect,thank you so much.we look forward to seeing you again for a dinner
Compasses Inn was amazing. The food, the atmosphere, the marquee in particular was a lovely place to spend the evening.
Would highly recommend.
Reasonable menu choice. Well cooked food and good service
Excellent roast Sunday lunch. Very thoughtful service. Thank you
Charming Pub, dog friendly, Great service and food. Worth a visit.
Have enjoyed The Compasses pre and now post Covid - always do a good bit of food in a characterful setting.
Only disappointment was the staff not wearing face masks or visors - had a form on the back of the menu for contact details but did not ask us to fill them in. Although I guess they have contact details from online booking.
Nice marquee put up in the garden to enable social distancing and very cute fairy lights which made it feel warm and lovely
Beautiful food in a beautiful setting. Lovely walk through the woods to get there too!
Had a lovely lunch thank you. Will definitely come back
This is a really quaint traditional pub in a lovely spot. Lovely warm and friendly welcome, well stocked bar and incredibly good food. Thoroughly recommended.
Booked to have a treat to look forward to driving back from Cornwall to London. Best roast I have had in a very long time! Excellent service. Beautiful views. Couldn’t be better! Thank you very much!
Great Dover sole.
Fantastic sticky pudding of clotted cream with dates and walnuts
In the circumstances the Compasses has pulled out all the stops to make a visit there enjoyable and relaxing.
Delicious food, excellent wine, total confidence regarding Health provisions which were well organised and non intrusive. A great place to go for a lovely meal out at a wonderful pub.
