We waited for our food for over an hour and when it came my boyfriends burger was missing the bacon and had burnt cheese on it and I had about 10 chips which were cold when I ask for more the wait was too long so I they said they’d give me a refund but that didn’t happen

Serving staff were lovely but everything was rather slow. We were told a number of time it was because the kitchen was so busy. We understood this but wasn’t sure why this meant a bowl of olives couldn’t be brought out to us.

Visited here on Saturday and wont be returning. Stood at the bar for at least 5 minutes without anyone even acknowledging we were there, all we wanted was to be shown to our table we had booked. Even though we had actually prebooked, no one could be bothered to show us to a table so we were left to find our own. Went to order food to then be told that there wouldnt be any food for over an hour. The bar tender was told this by what looked like the manager who couldnt even be bothered to tell us himself. Felt sorry for the bartender as it was not his fault. Pretty place on the outside but wasnt even busy so dont know why they couldnt serve any food. We didnt even receive an apology or a reason as to why.

We were a party of six (two grandparents, two parents and two kids) and had a lovely lunch on Easter Sunday! Although there was a small, initial problem with the booking, the staff went to great lengths to rectify and we then all enjoyed a lovely meal with friendly and helpful service. The pub itself is cosy and welcoming - especially with its roaring fire on a miserable day!

A truly disappointing meal on Easter Sunday. Some food served tepid, roast beef so tough as to be inedible and the slats on the table were full of old food debris which was unappetising and unhygienic at the same time! Server was very pleasant and we made our comments known before we left

This was my second visit to the Three Compasses. The food was not as good as I remember and, although the service was good, it was very slow. Not sure if they were just having a bad day, but it was rather disappointing.

We had a nice mothers day meal at the 2 Compasses. The food on the whole was very good aside from the beef which was tasty but a little tough. We were sitting near the door that accesses the rear play area. I think the door is not intended to be used as a usual way to go back-and-forth more a fire exit or something that may be open in hot days in summer. Fellow customer kept going in and out of the door letting the cold air in - my frustration was more with fellow diners constantly in and out with their kids. Finally the door was locked but then someone else came directed by a member of staff and unlocked it again...Did not spoil the afternoon but I should have asked to move to another table.

Came here spontaneously on a weekend lunchtime when dog walking in the area, was very welcoming into bar area with dog and muddy boots and had a lovely time, so decided to book for my birthday dinner. Staff all very friendly and attentive even when busy on a saturday evening. Food was great, taste and presentation, we had a variety from the menu and deserts disappeared quickly! Only downside no cocktails as some ingredients not available. Beers and spirits good variety though. Will be back.

The pub has been very nicely refurbished & layout is good. The home made soup was very good & so was dessert but the Sunday roast was disappointing. Our party had beef, lamb & chicken & all agreed it was just mediocre. Service wasn't great either- forgot to bring drinks & had to go to bar to ask for mint sauce. With many nice pubs doing good roasts, I think we'll try somewhere else next time.

I have been to Three Compasses a few times for lunch and I always find it cold. Please warm your restaurant during this cold weather. Menu is varied and interesting which is why I’ve been back but have to dress up warmly!

You should remove the shoulder or lamb from your main menu and serve it as a light meal. Never had such a poor quality serving. 3/4 of the plate full of greens, a tablespoon of potato gratin and four mouthfuls of lamb. Very poor for the price. Will no longer dine with you.
