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.

This summer Cornwall’s Miracle Theatre ventures into a world somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and Father Ted, where the earth is not round but sausage-shaped; where eccentric policemen fall in love with bicycles and you can visit eternity via a rickety lift, hidden beside a lane in the heart of rural Ireland.

With its hilarious characters, streaks of dark humour and unforgettable plot twist, The Third Policeman earned its author, Flann O’Brien, a world-wide reputation as one of Ireland’s great comic geniuses. O’Brien’s scorching wit and delicious turn of phrase, combined with Miracle’s delight in physical comedy and absurdity, has to be a winning combination. Fans of this cult classic and newcomers alike should expect the unexpected!
