Come and enjoy life at a more relaxed pace at the award winning Compasses Inn. Our charming pub is situated in the hamlet of Littley Green which lies in the heart of the delightful Essex countryside.
Our dog and child friendly Victorian pub, formerly known as the Ridley’s Brewery Tap, is steeped in history and tradition. We offer warm Guest Accommodation and serve local food, including the famous Essex Huffer, alongside some of the best real ales in Essex.
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.
