  • The pub is now owned and run by Jocelyn a scion of the Ridley family. You can now get decent beer and somebody wholly committed to seeing the pub as a thriving example of the best of Essex.
  • First steps in brewing taken in the winter of 2010/11. "Compasses bitter" is a really excellent, traditional East Anglian bitter. It is simple and honest and reminds me very much of the old days. Through the summer Jos and Neileon hope to increase the range. Getting started in brewing is always a learning process. Jos and Neileon have been fortunate to be able to use the equipment and assistance from Felstar. It has worked really well. Bravo!

  • Mystery This pub lies on a straight line 10 miles long of three pubs called the (Square and) Compasses. Coincidence? How is a church, LOST FOR 650 YEARS pinpointed by a fourth pub called the Compasses and using a 'square and a compass' 10 miles across!
