A terrific little place where quality real ale and conversation replaces juke boxes, musak, fruit machines and fizzy lager. With a car park 100m up the road, and the town centre a short walk away, we've visited three times in the past few weeks. Do...More

The best that Gravesend has to offer for superbly kept real ales. It is small but welcoming, the cellarmanship shines through with beer in top notch condition. Conversation can extend to anything and everything and can not be avoided. Dog friendly. Little rear yard for...More

It was the first time I had drunk in the Compass but a great pub that gave the feeling of being a small scale beer festival that I imagine continues throughout the year. Keep it up guys!!

Love this place. It's small and co set with a great selection of drinks. Staff are friendly and it's a pub were people actually talk to strangers and not just because they are drunk. You must visit if you are in gravesend.

If you are a fan of piped bar music, fruit machines, TVs, and lager - run away now. The Compass Ale House is all about beer, in it's many various styles. There are usually 3-5 beers, gravity-fed from kegs, available every day - 3 from...More

Great little Ale House. Small, no bar, but the best ale in Gravesend. No music or phones so conversation is expected.
