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.

This place was exactly what we wanted. Very doggy friendly with lovely dog walks in the Essex countryside next to the pub. The room we had ( the old bob) was beautifully done out and the pictures on the website didn't do it justice. Spotlessly clean with everything you need for an overnight stay. We didn't try the food but... More

Great beer (real ales and cider) served the traditional way, food was very good for dinner with a lovely choice of breakfast. Joss and staff were very friendly and helpful and Joss even arranged for a taxi to be on standby to take us to Chelmsford races as were late arriving at the Compasses.
