The Compasses Inn


0.5 miles
Littley Green, CM3 1BU

Surrounded by rural Essex countryside, this is an ideal getaway for walkers, cyclists and those simply enjoying a day out. Owned by a member of the Ridley family (of the Essex brewery), the pub offers the humble, traditional simplicity of a bygone era. All beer is stored in the cellar and comes straight from the tap. In fact, The Compasses was named Essex CAMRA Pub of the Year for 2012 and 2013 – a testament to the quality of their ales. Food-wise, the pub is well known for its huffers – bread baps packed with tasty fillings, either hot or cold, which are as delicious as they are big. Homemade dishes, including curry, fish and chips, jacket potatoes, salads and traditional Sunday roasts are also available.

A glimpse at the surrounding countryside will leave you wanting to explore, so maybe take advantage of the inn’s well-appointed guest rooms. You’ll have a delicious cooked breakfast to wake up to, plus a choice of muesli, yoghurt and fresh fruit – a great start to a day spent exploring the beautiful surrounding streams, cycle routes, walks, woodlands and historical sites. The Compasses boasts a spacious beer garden and hosts a monthly folk night and two beer festivals – one in August (featuring vintage tractor ploughing) and one in December – with proceeds going to Farleigh Hospice.
