About us

The Square and Compasses is a traditional country pub set in the picturesque countryside of rural Essex. Believed to date from about 1652 and originally two farmers cottages, the building retains a wealth of original features with exposed beams throughout.

 This 17th century freehouse has been sympathetically refurbished both internally and externally and offers a warm and relaxing atmosphere, delicious food, real ales and fine wines.

Inside, the cosy atmosphere and various styles of eclectic furniture and antiques ensures your comfort in which to enjoy a drink or two and maybe something to eat, in the company of family and friends. Whilst outside, there is a small garden with seating where you can enjoy the warm summer sun and the scenic views over the Essex Way.
