Found this place through booking. Com. Near where I was going the following day. Very happy with my choice, deep in the countryside. I'm from London where there is a lot of light pollution so when I saw the millions of stars above my head I was breath taken. Friendly charming little Inn.

We got caught in A30/M5 traffic and decided to go off track looking for hopefully, a good pub for lunch. We didn't go far towards the M5 Taunton before we saw the signs for a Good Pub guide handmade sign and I'm so glad we followed it. Such a lovely pub who also apparently specialise in weddings and functions. We...

We stayed here for 3 nights with our dog, ate at the pub twice in the evenings and just loved it. The rooms are cosy but very roomy and spotless, the staff at the pub could not be more welcoming and friendly and were brilliant with our dog. We used it as a base to see friends and visit local...

We ate frequently at this establishment whilst touring the area. The menu offered a great choice of food, which was very well cooked and thoroughly enjoyable. The portions were huge, and overall offered great value for money. As a CAMRA member, I was keen to sample the Ale's, and the ones I tried were top notch. They also have a...

Booked in last Saturday night to see The Martin Barre Band, my favourite guitarist. Leaving the band aside, they were awesome, the whole set-up of Square and Compass turned out to be brilliant, especially if you're staying over! Arrived mid-afternoon and although kitchen was closing up Chris the, very amiable, landlord, sorted out a couple of steak baguettes and a...
