Always a delight to visit the friendly Compasses. Beer is always a highlight and, on previous occasions, the food. This time were there for the Hopstock Beer Festival. Well run and not too overcrowded it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Stayed here for one night, pub was closed in arrival but a local I encountered on the road found me the owner! Very helpful locals and staff! They were happy to get me some food ready, which I ate in my room (not the easiest thing to do but better than being hungry!). Lovely clean room and bathroom, plenty of... More

The pub is a bit of a throwback to yesteryear and offers none of the mod-cons of some pubs but that helps create a friendly atmosphere that is rarely found these days. The pub is very popular with cyclists, walkers and those who enjoy a traditional country pub. The beer served is first class, hardly suprising as the landlord is... More

My partner and I attended a wedding at Leez Priory and found the Compasses online as it is a stone's throw away. It is situated in a pretty part of the countryside and is just very pretty. The landlord was having breakfast when we arrived but took time out to chat to us, help us with our questions and show... More

We live locally and are drawn back to the Compasses. The pub is a real English pub and in the middle of a delightful part of the Essex countryside. The beer is excellent and there is always a good choice. The food gets better every time. We took friends with us and they were very impressed. The pub has a... More

We were again at the Compasses (the second time) and stayed for two days. It was like the first time. A very warm welcome, very friendly and helpful staff and a beatiful room. The Compasses is absolutely dog friendly. We enjoyed the food, especially the rich breakfast and the local ciders and ales.

Stopped here for lunch and tried the well conceived huffers and some decent real ale. A charming old school pub and busy, despite being a bit out of the way. Would definitely be a pleasant place to spend more time.
