he Square and Compass couples three tasks: it entertains long standing patrons, refreshes walkers and tourists and draws in music lovers. There was always a touch of music. Old Charlie played the fiddle, Eileen liked the village folk playing, Raymond encouraged musicians to bring their instruments. When Charlie began to take over he gave music a formal status, booking performers from across the country. This attracted new clientele, brought a new question 'Who's on at the Square?' Meanwhile other occasions were added to the menu, including dressing up for New Year's Eve (which was exported to Swanage where it became a major event), Square Fair, the climax of a fortnight-long (July-August) stone carving session and Pumpkin Day in October, when local gardeners compete for the heaviest pumpkin. Kevin Hunt continues all these and has added an annual table-tennis tournament, a Jazz Fest in September and a bottled beer festival to close the year. Meanwhile, Charlie creates excellent cider behind the pub The square serves a variety of delicious homemade snacks.
