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

Can't really fault what you guys are doing, best meal I've had in a long time. I've no doubt I would give 5/5 for value for money if I had the set lunch menu. Keep up the good work!!!

We tend to bring friends/relatives along to the Compases, so eat with you 4 or 5 times a year. We have never been disappointed and neither have our fellow diners.

Venetian Evening Venice is a city of memories, romance and exciting eating experiences. In their special evening of Venetian cuisine we were presented with a five course meal with excellent matching wines and an informative introduction by an expert on the subject. Well done to all concerned, particularly Robert, whose dishes were delightfully cooked and presented. This was a tour de force by him and his efficient team. Well done everyone.

The Compasses was once again simply perfect!! We received the warmest welcome on arrival and perfect service throughout our visit and as usual the food was exemplary. The Compasses is somewhere we always look forward to visiting, delight in everything while we are there and then leave with a warm happy feeling inside. It’s our favourite place to eat and I can’t wait for our next opportunity to book.

It was our 2nd time here and, as before, the food and wine were excellent and the staff were fantastic. We came on on a Wednesday evening so, unsurprisingly for a venue in the middle of nowhere, it was very quiet with only one other table occupied so, alas, the atmosphere wasn’t brilliant. We shall come again though!

After some good words from a friend, I was excited about our first visit, Cracking little pub in the middle of nowhere. Immaculately kept inside and outside, with a real country pub feel with all the woodwork and brickwork inside, nice size garden, and a very warm welcome by the staff, sat us in the garden while they set our tables, brought us some drinks and the menus to get our tastebuds going. I was really anticipating the food now, the good reviews, the friends recommendation, the tasty looking menu, I was ready, and I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED, John Dory for starters and the delicious Roast beef lunch, perfect for sundays, my partner had the Roast Chicken which was also exceptional. The staff gave my partner a nice birthday surprise also, just an all round great day out, little more expensive than most sunday lunches in other pubs, but you pay for the service, the friendliness, the terrifically well maintained pub, and some great food at the same time, you will definitely see us again in the near future, thanks, Gaz
