Blackthorn _ left this review about The Compton

A popular country pub that was pretty much full to capacity on a recent late Saturday afternoon visit, which is good to see, if somewhat surprising given it's slightly out of the way location. According to one of the friendly locals this is due to the local shoot meeting in the pub.

Inside, the pub is basically a single L-shape room, divided up in to a couple of different sections. The main area at the front of the pub is a traditional bar area with wood flooring, pale lemon paintwork on the upper part of the walls, and pale green wood panelling below as well as a community notice board. There was some exposed stonework at the rear, which was a nice touch although it was shame it had a plasma stuck on it which spoilt the look somewhat. Fortunately this was not in use. A large fire-place to the right housed a small wood burning stove, but this was not in use and looked as though it may be more of a decorative feature.

However, there was another large dual aspect stone fire-place to the left which also housed a roaring wood burning stove and this was kept well topped up whilst we were there from the pile of logs alongside. Next to this was a bookcase squeezed in to the gap between the chimney and the wall. A few armchairs and a leather sofa around the fire are a cosy spot and to the other side of the fire-place is an area that looks more geared up for dining with old black and white pictures of the village on the walls.

Another, carpeted dining area was at the rear of the pub complete with candles on all the tables. Despite this, I didn't get the impression that this was particularly a dining pub, but more of a village local that does food. That may have been just due to the nature of the clientele present at the time though.

Beers on tap were Doom Bar, Butcombe and Gem. Ciders were Blackthorn, Stowford Press and Thatcher's Traditional.
