Welcome to the Square and Compass

A friendly, family welcome from the staff, locals and customers of the pub is extended to all
who visit The Square and Compass. Undoubtedly a true gem in the heart of Dorset.

Award winning beers and ciders including home pressed traditional cider made by the owner,
are the perfect accompaniment to a traditional hot pasty or pie.

Live music is also served up on a regular basis with bands and artists playing
at the pub on evenings and Sunday afternoons through out the year.

It is London, 1924, and rich and powerful tycoon and former East End barrow boy, Sir Arthur Cattermole, is not happy. His son, Gerald, whom he has spent his hard earned brass on to go to Eton, is in love with the girl next door, the beautiful Isabelle and daughter of hard up doctor, Cornelius Truss. So he sends Gerald to Africa to look after his cocoa business. The young lovers, of course, are heartbroken. Funny, romantic and moving the play demonstrates the gritty determination to overcome an apparently unassailable problem through absolute love. New theatre inspired by the Commedia dell’Arte

"Commedia dell'arte – the tradition that gave us Mr Punch and the foundations of pantomime – is a rare discipline, even in Italy. But the Rudes have made it their own" ~ Jenny Gilbert, The Independent

"It's a pleasure to see a company so expertly making good 21st century theatre firmly based in an old art form which is such an important strand in the history of our industry" ~ The Stage Magazine
