The food was very good but I thought most of it was overpriced. £14 for a very ordinary butternut squash salad was ridiculous. The staff were excellent and I felt very safe.

Review is based on Saturday menu. Staters were acceptable - no comment to be made. Mains: Beef burger - genuinely could make better at home. So thin beef patty’s were very dry and bland. Sauce for the burger was one small squirt and Mayo on the top bun ONLY. Burger bun was visibly burnt (black) so as you can imagine it was like tasting a burger that had been dragged through the Sahara Desert it was that dry. My friends Seabass: good size portion with 2 fillets. The positives ended there. Drenched in oil and other sauce. Other friend butter chicken: chicken was dry, couscous cake ruined what could have been some nice simple fluffy couscous. The cake was compacted so tight it was like an ice hockey puck and covered in what looked to be cement, but I believe was baba ganoush.

Not worthy of the price. First hour was akin to working in a boarding kennels with dogs barking constantly. Service was appalling. An hour + wait between finishing main course and finally getting a menu for pud. Empty glasses and bottles remaining throughout the meal. Paid, left. Didn’t pay the 10% discretionary service charge. Still £163 for 5 covers.

We had Saturday lunch with my cousin, her husband and her new puppy. Because of the restrictions at the time we had to sit outside, but under a tented area that had been created. Unfortunately it was quite cold, but blankets were provided. The staff were all really lovely and very helpful. The food was delicious and we will definitely come back again once we can all eat inside!

Very nice meal I really enjoyed the food and wine. The sticky toffee pudding was especially tasty! I liked the marquee which provided cover from the weather and blankets and hot water bottles were great.

Great meal in the circumstances. The Square and Compass have really made the most of their outside eating area and the menu was so good compared to many other establishments who have substantially cut back their food offering. Thank you.

We had an excellent meal on May 9th and 11th at the Square and Compass in North Rigton. The food was superb, the staff very friends, polite and attentive. We were still unable to eat inside but a Marquee was available with two sides fully open. This made it much more cosy. Blankets and hot water bottles were offered. Only the blankets were used round our legs Thoroughly enjoyed my two Birthday Treats there.

Visited 09/05/21. The Sunday roasts we had were tasty but unremarkable The portions were embarrassing - we had a roast chicken and I had to double look to find the chicken amongst the potatoes on the plate. Tiny breast and a bit of a leg. We feel no rush to return again for a meal and wouldn’t recommend friends to visit based on our meals.
