Fabulous Sunday lunch in a beautiful setting with great service
My family and I met for a celebratory supper and weren’t disappointed. The food is excellent and the menu varied but not too extensive. We all said it was hard to choose from such an interesting and varied menu. The staff are friendly and helpful and the new outdoor seating allows views over the adjoining fields. It isn’t heated but we were offered blankets and were very cosy. Excellent value for money and thoroughbred recommended.
The Compasses is a near-perfect pub. The location is idyllic, and the staff are super friendly and attentive. Plus, the food is consistently brilliant with a varied, revolving menu that is always chuffing delicious (technical term). My only hesitation for sharing praise is that it gets too busy, and I can't book a table.
We had such a lovely evening at The Compassses in Chicksgrove. Service could not have been better - quick, efficient and polite. We shared starters of humous and deep fried chilli squid, and then all had the steak and chips- perfectly cooked rare, absolutely delicious, hot and so tasty with a lovely bottle of mellow red wine - I was in heaven and the best way to go out for the first time in a long time!
Lovely Middle Eastern inspired food. We loved it! Glad to see several veggie options on the menu!
Food at The Compasses great as usual with an interesting and well balanced menu. Marquee service works well and staff working very hard to get it right. Cannot wait to get back inside the lovely pub though
Delicious food in a great setting. Friendly efficient service. Couldn’t ask for more.
Nice spot, nice view, great food
Proper country pub with stand out grub
Our first meal out after lockdown. Very nice garden seating. Friendly staff. Great food and beer. Highly recommend.
Excellent quality - just a problem finding the place.
fantastic outdoor experience and as ever top quality food
Fantastic location, and the new outdoor area is an absolute hit
Staff were lovely and every effort was made to accommodate
Would happily recommend and go back again
This was our first experience of "eating out" and it was good. It turned a little cold at the end, but only one of our party hadn't really prepared for this. The rest of us had dressed warmly and there were blankets available for our use. We're going to do it again!
The food was absolutely amazing as always. Loved the atmosphere in the outdoor tent and such a beautiful setting. Felt nice and cosy with the blankets. All of the waiters are so friendly and helpful and know their stuff. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Food was good quality and tasty but portion size was a little small. Lovely view of nearby fields. Chairs a little uncomfortable but overall very enjoyable.
Another fantastic meal at the compasses, food was faultless and so well put together. Lots of new choices on the menu and loved the new outdoor area. It was just a bit chilly but nothing much you can do about that. Look forward to more alfresco dining when it warms up.
It's a special environment sitting outside viewing sheep on the hillside in the sunset. Nicely unreconstructed too mirroring the inside settles, flagstones and fire.
First meal put after they opened. It was a bit chilly out, but blankets helped and the staff and food were excellent. The chicken kebab was very good value as well as being really good.
Even though it was freezing cold outside we had a fantastic dinner with delicious food that came quickly, arrived hot and was extremely welcome! Thanks for a great evening!
Excellent menu, with a great choice to suit everyone. Service, ambience and setting was also brilliant. A real find and definitely recommended!
Wonderful pub who have done a great job to adapt to the new world, can't wait to go back
Lovely pub. Keep good beer. Frequently changing menu. Top class food. Freshly cooked lovely flavours. We had a very enjoyable evening
Beautiful setting being outside with the sun going down. Food is incredible! lovely people and service.
Wondeful location, great food and brilliant service. Will definitely be going back.
Always a great meal at the Compasses Inn. The food is delicious and the setting couldn’t be better.
Given the difficulties surrounding meal serving ad eating, the Compass’s staffcoped magnificently.
Amazing food, amazing setting! Would highly recommend.
Everything and more than expected. Our first proper visit to our new local. So refreshing to sit drink well kept beer, eat a great burger and soak up the atmosphere.
Great night at the Compasses. Our party of 6 were seated in the temporary marquee which was warm, cosy and beautifully decorated. Great atmosphere. We were served by Nicky who is an outstanding waitress and made every effort to look after us.
One of my favourite pubs in England, especially in the winter.
My new favourite country pub. Great vibes, super friendly staff and a meal I’ve been dreaming about for days after. Definitely get the Comte “crack” cheese sticks but beware, you will try to make them at home yourself and fail. Best leave it to the pros.
All round excellent. Lovely pub. Recommended by many local friends and we'd do the same. Would love to return for the music evening.
Great grub, great service and lovely warm atmosphere
We enjoyed a quiet dinner a deux on Boxing Day which made up for the disappointment of not having our family with us at Christmas.
The food was delicious and we were made to feel very welcome and valued by Alex. He was an excellent host and we will definitely be back.
Pub was full which was to be expected for the time of year, however the service and quality of food was faultless, will definitely be returning.
It's a guarantee every time we visit that the food is out of this world. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Reasonably priced for the decent portions you get and the flavours and combinations offered are the best out of any gastro pub in the area.
Friendly capable staff, superb food, lovely cosy atmosphere. Covid safe.
Totally recommend.....Gorgeous, friendly, low key atmosphere and truly delicious food!
One of my favourite pubs! Great service and atmosphere. Food very good.
