This was our second visit to The Compasses, the first being in February. The food was just as good, the fish and chips is highly recommended. On our first visit they served tap water in a decorative bottle which was inscribed 'Only tap water but perfectly good to drink!' We thought this was a lovely touch and didn't cost anything....

We found this pub on the good beer guide and wow what a find. A bit off the beaten track but not too far from the A303 I doubt it can rely on passing trade. Instead it relies on fantastic beer, excellent food and a great atmosphere. Brilliant staff too. I would thoroughly recommend this pub.

Visited on Friday 28th April, in the evening. This pub is like going back to medieval times in its furnishing and size. The staff were lovely very good service. Good was rustic but tastes amazing. We had the braised beef and the fish pie, both were very tasty. Would go back next time we are in Wiltshire.

Welcoming staff....fantastic old pub, with garden.....good selection of beer/wine....great atmosphere. BUT the real star here is the food. It's expertly cooked and reasonably priced by today's standards. Quietly located on a lovely part of Wiltshire. Highly recommended.

We noticed The Compasses Inn on the internet in a list of best pubs, so living just 30 miles away decided to give it a try, greeting was very friendly and we were quickly served with drinks and shown our table. First impression was of a very old quirky village Pub, The food was delicious we could not fault it,...

Three of us squeezed onto a table for two. Good food and service. Overpriced drinks . Also three glasses of the same wine, came in at three different prices. Landlord more interested in messing around with his till and paperwork than dealing with waiting customers. Also no lights in Car Park, on a very dark night.! Apart from these niggles...

Now under new management and new Chef and to be fair no major changes to this wonderful idyllic country Inn. The menu is modern with plenty to tempt you and some little bar snacks if you just want a light bite. We had a selection off each and everything was great, portions, look, flavours all did exactly as expected. Special...

Had a nice Sunday lunch bit tight with the veg considering it was £15 for a roast. Good choice of real ales. Staff bit lacking in customer service skills I.e welcoming customers. Overall good but probably won't rush back.

We live fairly close - 15 min drive - so it's handy to pop for a quick bit of supper. Food is really good. The haddock and chips are some of the best around. The chaps serving us were friendly and helpful. It's a great little pub - old charm with character. We ate on a Monday evening and got...
