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.

Please note: Summertime Opening Hours now apply:

Summertime Opening (from Mon 3rd April):
12-11pm - 7-days-a-week



Not a competition, but an event for people, experienced or novice, to enjoy carving stone, this 2 week long stone carving festival has been running now for over 20 years.

Watch the experts turn a block of stone into a work of beauty over the 2 weeks, and take the opportunity to borrow some tools, select a stone and have a go at creating your own piece of work.

The event runs daily with the tent open from 9.30am till 5pm.

Children must be accompanied by adults.

There will be music in the pub every night.
