Very nice meal. Dogs barking in the bar before hand was a bit annoying, but other than that, a lovely meal.

I was so disappointed with our visit. We felt rushed and not valued as a customer. My food order was wrong but to counter this I was not charged for my two coffees. After such good recommendations from friends and family we were really excited to be going to this restaurant it sadly it was not the experience we were anticipating.

Excellent meal with friendly, efficient service. Our experience was slightly marred by the noisy table next to us but that didn’t prevent us from having a great evening.

This was our third visit, we went as a party of four. Unfortunately my husband and my friend chose one of the specials off of the board which was not really good, but the way our complaint was dealt with was exceptional, they couldn't do enough for us. Mine and my other friends meal plus all the desserts were as always amazing. Cannot wait to return. Thank you Three Compasses in Aldenham

I posted to TripAdvisor Well there's a surprise! A lovely pub and the menu looked good on-line, so we booked. It's hard to try new places. They always seem to disappoint. The other place has better chips or the staff are better because they know us. There's always something. Not at the little Alpine at the three compasses! The name 'little Alpine' should of alerted us to what to expect........ Near on bloody perfection 😃 The Alpine of Bushey nr. Watford was a great Italian restaurant when I was a boy My dad used to take us. Real Italian food and lots of it! Fantastic! Closed recently unfortunately. The Little Alpine in the three compasses, you keeping up? It's the son this time, he was schooled by the father and a world accomplished chef in his own right has a winner on his hands. I had roast beef. I like a good Sunday roast. I've not had better, really, other than at the Savoy grill! The meat was cooked perfectly, the litmus test are the potatoes, they were perfect. The carrots had a unique taste which was divine, the Yorkshire pud, perfect and the gravy complimented it all. My partner had the salmon which had a delicate taste of lemon grass which she loved. To start we shared a buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad. It was so good, typically Italian. It came on 2 plates, a first! The food was 5*, the staff were excellent, the pub was lovely. The little Alpine at the three compasses is a must. Enjoy 😉

Warm friendly atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff. Just a comment on the Vegetarian sharing plate ,it was a little greasy and too much fried items . The pitta bread for the hummus didn't arrive so we had to ask for it. Would have been better warmed or lightly toasted. Too many poor quality olives , preferably fewer and better quality and selection. We will be back
