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
Great atmosphere and food
Great place, lovely atmosphere and wonderful food ethos and cooking.
Excellent second visit
One of the ladies serving was quite rude as we were 10 minutes late for our booking as we got lost as quite difficult to find and she told us we were 25 mins late until I reminded her we were actually only 10 mins late as we were booked for 2.30 and it was nearly 2.40.This and being hurried to order coffee and feeling of rushing us when we spent about £130 was only unpleasant thing as meal was delicious, atmosphere great.
Brilliant meal. Really good food cooked really well in a friendly cosy setting. Favourite eatery in the area.
Sensational food; every course delicious!
We eat in some amazing places, and this little country retreat did not fail to impress, the friendliest of staff, great range of drinks, both Ales, Larger and wine, this is to Michelin star standards
