About Compasses Inn
Hidden above the Downs between Canterbury and Ashford in Kent, the Compasses Inn is a great Rural Country Pub find whether you are looking for a pitstop whilst cycling or walking, a relaxed lunch, a special evening meal, or a pint of fine Kentish ale.
Husband and wife team Rob & Donna Taylor are just into their third year at the Compasses and clearly have a great love for what they do - reflected in the pubs' appearance and the care and attention to every detail inside. They have a wealth of knowledge between them gained at some of the best restaurants and hotels in London and Australia
Robert says he feels lucky to own such a gorgeous pub in a very beautiful part of rural Kent. "As an area of Outstanding Natural beauty (AONB) we are surrounded by Game Estates, Rivers for Fishing, amazing Farmlands with Local Producers - and not to forget the stunning coastline within striking distance." With meats coming from as little as 1/4 mile down the road, and vegetables, herbs and fruits used from their own garden, they really have grasped the concept of fresh local produce.
Donna describes the Compasses as a "muddy wellies and fine food kind of place" adding that "we have not lost sight of the pub's history as a Fine Ale House, and we endeavour to complement this with a fine Modern British Menu offering both light lunches and full evening meals with traditional foods in contemporary style
We were in the front bar and loved the relaxed atmosphere. Also good to know that well behaved dogs are allowed in the bar. The service and food was excellent. We were pleased to be able to have a glass of Prosecco each (rather than a bottle) and it was very well chilled.Will definitely come again.
Always fantastic friendly service and the food is always incredible! Lovely, clean and cosy, it's first on our list for any special occasions! Never a disappointment.
We were a bit disappointed to be honest. My husband thought his meal very small for the price. I had the veggie option which was delicious. After the initial 30 minute wait which was fine the service seemed terribly slow though there were lots of staff and it wasn't packed in there .sorry. I had been looking forward to it for ages and have heard great things. We will be back I expect maybe more for winter when we could benefit from the lovely cozy rooms.
Wonderful food, lovely relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. Would highly recommend. We have booked to go back already
As always great reception, superb lunch, and very nice wines....
We loved it! So much so, we booked to come back.
The Compasses Inn was just perfect and we will be back sometime in the future. Thank you
Food was absolutely sublime. Staff were lovely and very pleasant. And jessica went above and beyond to help make it a very special occasion and deal with the booking in her personal time too. 110% will recommend to everyone. I've heard nothing but good things and all were proved true at our visit. Well done to you all.
