Come and enjoy the Essex countryside, a well kept secret. The pub is situated in an idyllic place where bat willows grace the banks of the River Chelmer. Pike can be seen swimming in the clear waters and if you are lucky you will see the vivid flash of blue as the kingfisher flies past.

See the historic pillboxes, remnants of World War II, amongst the wild garlic in the nearby woodlands and enjoy walking through the fields of linseed and wheat.

The local countryside is perfect for walking, cycling and horse riding. If you are interested, the The Compasses' unique cycling shirts are available from the bar.

For all those winter walkers there is a welcoming open log fire and a good pint of real ale to help you on your way.
