Come and enjoy life in the slow lane at the traditional Compasses Inn. This charming pub is situated in the hamlet of Littley Green which lies in the heart of the underrated Essex countryside.
This dog and child friendly Victorian pub, formerly known as the Ridley’s Brewery Tap, is steeped in history and tradition. It offers warm Guest Accommodation rooms and serves local food, including the famous Essex Huffer, alongside some of the best real ales in Essex, prizing itself on its traditionally well kept cellar.
So if you are looking for a relaxing time with a pint of real ale whether it be in the garden on a sunny day or some hot traditional pub food by a warm open fire in the depths of winter, The Compasses welcomes you. We look forward to seeing you soon.

ALE OF THE WEEK
Having come from a brewing family and been taught the importance of providing a good pint I converted the cellar into a traditional temperature controlled room where we pull your pint directly from the barrel giving you the freshest real ale money can buy.
We offer a wide selection of real ales written on our blackboard which we frequently change but leaving some of the firm favourites all year round.
There is always one Essex ale available, usually Bishop Nick (brewed by my brother Nelion Ridley), and Adnams Bitter from Suffolk.
