would probably have put this at 3.5 stars - nice enough pub, beer was good, staff were friendly - not exceptional but good and perfectly happy to go again. We didnt eat so cant comment on that

We visited while camping at the Compass. Friendly reception from all the staff. Had fun with karaoke on Friday night and the band were fab on the Saturday. Great with kids and dogs! See you again soon!

We only called in for drinks, but it's exactly what a pub should be. Friendly and welcoming with tip-top local beer at very reasonable prices. Why would you stay in?
