Welcome to the awarding winning Compasses Inn at Littley Green. We are open as normal and serving food and drink every day of the week. Please see below for our opening and food times.
HOPSTOCK BEER, MUSIC & CYCLING FESTIVAL
We are raising money for Cancer Research UK this year in memory of my friend Dan Goode who passed away from bowel cancer early in 2020. Dan was a keen cyclist and it is therefore apt that we have a cycling theme to this year’s festival. We will be giving a free half pint of real ale, real cider or soft drink (whilst stocks last) to anyone who cycles up to the pub for the festival this year. We also hope to have a display of old bikes and on Saturday 20th August there are cycling events going from the pub organised by the Audax Club Mid-Essex (ACME) – details of how to enter the 50km, 120km and 200km events are below:
You do not need to book a table to come to The Compasses. We have 14 tables available in the pub and 8 in the marquee to the side of the pub. We only take bookings for groups of 6 or above and these will be staggered to minimise wait times.
Being members of the sixth generation of the Ridley brewing family we pride ourselves on the quality of our real ale.
There is always Bishop Nick Ridley’s Rite (a session bitter), a dark ale, two golden ales and one other guest ale. See the blackboard below for our latest offerings.

COMPASSES’ NOMINATED CHARITY 2022
The Compasses’ nominated charity for 2022 is Cancer Research UK. Joss Ridley, the landlord, has chosen Cancer Research UK as one of his best friends (Dan) sadly died from Bowel Cancer early in 2020. We have already reached our target of £10,000 but there will be numerous events throughout the year to help raise even more money for a fabulous cause. 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:
