The strongest and the best cider I have ever drank was while walking the South West Coast Path, at a village called Worth Matravers. The pub was called "The Square and Compass" They had a selection of 8 or 9 ciders that were served straight from the barrel. My favourite was a pear cider called Perry.

I live not far from the Square and Compass at Worth Matravers. It is just outside Wareham, Dorset. I can confirm that the cider is still good!

" I live not far from the Square and Compass at Worth Matravers. It is just outside Wareham, Dorset. I can confirm that the cider is still good!" Hi Rob, I remember the first time I visited the S&C, there were chickens running free in the lounge.

Hi Mick, there are not too many places left like the Square and Compass. It has been in the Newman family for generations and been in every edition of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. You would be surprised at the number of Coventrians that live down here. We even have a Dorset Sky Blues supporters group on Facebook which has nearly two hundred members!

All planning is now done for my next adventure. Starting May 12th. 44 miles of coast path from Cromer to Lowestoft over 4 nights. Wild camping, so we hope it dries up a bit !!

Is this trip solo or are you travelling with your kids? 44miles- I'm very impressed. We'll be over in Norfolk but not until September. We've recently finished watching lovely documentary about Norfolk and Suffolk, narrated by Bill Nighy which made us want to jump on a plane to visit all the places he did.

Hi Linda. no, not solo. It is the usual 3 of us. One to carry the tent outer, one to carry the tent inner and one for poles and pegs. We should cover the 44 miles over 3 days as long as we can keep out of the pub.
