Slide 1 - Welcome

Welcome to the Square & 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 throughout the year.

Wintertime Opening Hours:
12-11pm - 7-days-a-week


We are now open, (as of the 4th July), and to allow for correct social distancing we have decided to only serve through the windows.
- (ie. No Inside Seating!) -

We will still be trying our best to make the Square and Compass the welcoming place that we hope you love, and though it may take a while to perfect this, we are sure, with your help that this is possible.

Sadly for the immediate future we will not be able to provide you with any of the excellent live music that you have come to expect here and also, sadly, if we find that we have too many customers for our outside seating, we will have no choice but to close the pub until correct distancing can be maintained.

Hopefully we will see you all soon, but also hopefully, not all at the same time!

Please also note:
All of our planned festivals this year have had to be cancelled.

We hope to get back to some semblance of normality with the schedule as and when circumstances permit.

In the meantime - Stay safe. Stay well. Stay happy!

With best wishes to everyone from the Square & Compass.
