Very accommodating as we arrived early for are reservation. Therefore we had to be seated in the bar area but staff were helpful and made room for me, my husband and toddler with the room they had available. Sunday dinner was delicious!!

We had prebooked for a table of 14 and they are clearly used to dealing with large groups. The staff were all friendly and easy to deal with. They were also able to cater for 2 gluten free diners in our party. I was told the GF burger was one of the best ever (by my son!). Decent atmosphere and a good range of beers.

The trout dish was absolutely gorgeous. One of the tastiest main courses I've had in a long time! None of us could fault the food! Expensive, but worth it.The main draw back was having the sun glaring at some of us, and no blinds etc to prevent this, so we ended up having to hang our coats up. Otherwise, for a group of 15 people, it was a lively, enjoyable afternoon... Oh, did I mention the trout... 😃

We ate here as a party of 8 on Sunday, as usual the food was extremely good and service was very attentive. We had a warm welcome from both staff and management team from the moment we entered; we all opted for roast dinners which came with a proper homemade Yorkshire puddings and plenty of vegetables. The only slight niggle would be the length of time for drinks to arrive at the table and empty glasses cleared away. Thoroughly recommended; we will be back

The crackling wasn’t very “crackly” when our waitress asked us how the food was I mentioned it and she went straight back to the kitchen and for us some that was! Very impressed with the service. It was super busy when we arrived but the team were brilliant at getting us to our table. The portions are huge! Good value for money.

We had 2 vegetarian nut roasts - they were very small in size compared to other vegetarian roasts you have had on the menu. The side of vegetables between 3 people were very small. We did not mention this as the time as we were visiting with a friend from America and did not want to put a downer on the atmosphere. Great staff, tasty food but not enough of it.

Six of us (and our dog) came for lunch on Christmas Eve. As a fairly frequent lunchtime visitor it was a big change to see the place so busy. However, that in no way detracted from the usual high standard of both food and service. Well done to a young team of hardworking waiting/ bar/ kitchen staff who ensured that everything was as professional and tasty as it always is.

Not your usual good standard. Visited Xmas eve. usually Excellent food especially for me(Coeliac requiring Gluten free) Uninterested server with an "eye roll" when asked to check what was suitable-Not a good start Told steak and chips would be fine-very small portion as gluten items ie onion rings omitted rather than substitutes in place. Steak flat cold-even the garlic butter didnt melt-Did I complain/send it back-NO-as there was no servers around to speak with.(Understandably busy ) no one to check food was OK neither to replenish drinks etc. On a plus note the gluten free crumble for dessert was amazing and restored my faith in your usual fantastic food..

We recently hosted our wedding in the private vault at the square and compass. We chose the venue as it has always been our favourite gastro pub. The wedding meal was just wonderful - running up to the day, Paul and the team were on hand with any questions and we felt confident in them so we had no concerns on the day. Even with last minute changes, they handled everything so smoothly. The day itself went perfectly - the food was delicious - all our guests commented on how good it was - even for a large group they cooked all the steaks to order and the service was seamless. A special thanks to Simon and James who were really helpful and friendly and assisted us with everything on the day - including carrying our decorations to the car at the end of the evening! All drinks for our guests were charged to our tab and Paul very correctly estimated the cost before hand using his experience so we knew what to expect. Nothing was left to chance and we had such a wonderful day - all helped by the great team and incredible food at the square and compass. Thanks to all! We made amazing memories and will keep on returning to a place that is so special to us.

One of our party would have preferred to have just a main but didn’t feel like the menu was explained properly until we came to order desert so ended up paying for a starter she didn’t want. Also the roast potatoes On the roast were pretty rubbish, but they always are in pub roasts so there you go. Everything else was very nice, the service was friendly and the food came swiftly.
