Welcome to the awarding winning Compasses Inn at Littley Green.
VALENTINE’S WEEKEND CHARITY TAKEAWAY
We are also offering 2 Crouch Vale real ales for £10 for 4 pints – please bring your container for takeaway only!
COVID-19 UPDATE 15TH DECEMBER 2020
As of 16th December, The Compasses will move into Tier 3 which means we will have to shut. We are not sure when we will be able to reopen – there is a review on 23rd of December. Given the severity of the increase in cases, it is very unlikely that we will be able to open over the Christmas period.
We will probably offer a takeaway service this weekend to get rid of any surplus stock, so please watch this space for details.
If you would like accommodation for any of the legitimate reasons stated in Tier 3 guidelines, please get in touch by email.
Otherwise, we wish you all a very happy and safe Christmas and hopefully see you at some point in the new year.
Last Updated 12th December 2020
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.
Breakast at The Compasses!

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:
