Welcome to the awarding winning Compasses Inn at Littley Green.
The Compasses COVID-19 Statement 22/03/2020
It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to shut the pub’s takeaway service from tonight.
Although I really appreciate the support we have received over the weekend, having spoken at length to my staff and in light of the advice and support given by the government, I cannot, with a clear conscience, ask my staff to continue to come to work. Not only am I putting them at unnecessary risk, many of them live with vulnerable people. I believe the decisions we make today, and the way we behave, will greatly affect our collective future.
I would like to thank you all for your support. We are lucky to serve such a wonderful community and we are saddened that we will not be able to do so in the coming weeks. I’d also like to thank everyone at Essex Young Farmers for their generosity – it has been a great couple of months!
Take care of yourselves and your loved ones, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to the new and improved Compasses in the not too distant future.
Joss & everyone at The Compasses xx
COMPASSES’ NOMINATED CHARITY 2020
The Compasses’ nominated charity for 2020 is Cancer Research UK. Joss Ridley, the landlord, has chosen Cancer Research UK as one of his best friends (Dan) has been living with Stage IV bowel cancer for the last two years. There will be numerous events at the pub, including a weekly quiz night on Thursday evenings whilst we’re at The Whitbreads Barn, to help reach our target of £10,000. Joss is also racing the Transcontinental Bikepacking Race in July in order to help raise awareness. We would be very grateful if you are able to support us in any way, and if you would like to sponsor Joss on his big bike ride and read about Dan’s journey, please click on the link below:

Being members of the sixth generation of the Ridley brewing family we pride ourselves on the quality of our real ale.
There are always two classic Essex bitters available – usually Bishop Nick Ridley’s Rite and Crouch Vale Essex Boys Best – a dark ale, a golden ale and one other guest ale. See the blackboard below for our latest offerings.
