Charming thatched inn amid beautiful rolling countryside

Compasses Inn was built in the 14th century and you can sense evidence of its history as soon as you walk through the low-latched door at the end of the cobbled path. Flagstone floors, low wooden beams and a roaring fire retain the timeless character of the pub but new owner Ben Maschler has a modern approach to the food and drink. The menu changes daily and is written around the freshest local ingredients. Pan-fried pigeon breasts, chorizo, lentils and sherry and walnut vinaigrette could be followed by fish pie with buttered greens, or Goan pork curry. Wash it down with a pint of Wiltshire-brewed Plain Ales Inntrigue.
