We stayed for one night and the place is brimming with friendliness from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. It was perfect for us as my husband has limited mobility and room called Old Bob could not have been better!! The people who run this place go the extra mile in my book. Oh, did I mention... More

This is our favourite pub in Essex, a real gem! It offers real ales, traditionally served, it has a large beer garden and hosts regular beer festivals. Excellent food, comfortable B&B rooms & a bike shed for cyclists. Friendly welcoming staff.

Very warm welcome, a beautiful location, nice hosts, good local real ales and ciders, well furnished and comfortable rooms, very dog friendly pub, fantastic breakfast ... "In the middle of nowhere" but it's worth to visit it.

My partner and I stayed here for the night as we were attending a wedding nearby at Leezs Priory. The bedroom we stayed in was small but beautifully decorated and had everything you could want there. It was a little noisy with the windows open during the afternoon due to it being a nice day and people drinking outside however... More

What a great surprise in the nearby countryside outside Chelmsford! Well-run, clean, tastefully decorated with friendly and attentive staff who seem to love working there. As a female travelling on my own for business it's a safe and secure alternative to the bland B&Bs in town. It's a jewel - I can't wait to return!

We didn't want to venture far and found the compasses online. A must visit place. Still run by a ridley and viewing windows to the beer cellar where beers poured from barrels. The huffer for lunch is a must we had one each and they were massive. A real local pub with excellent accommodation which is pristine, clean and modern.... More

Stayed only one night as we had a wedding nearby. We would however definitely go back. Beautiful rooms, exceptional cleanliness and superb disabled facilities. Great food, brilliant staff and a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Quiet and peaceful location.
