We have been to the Compass on many occasions. Its a superb Micro Pub, its very quirky in that it has no Bar...simply sit down and the Bar Man will serve you. They only sell Ales/Wine/Spirits and selected Bottle Beers but the prices are reasonable...More

The number of micropubs is growing, and whilst they are all better than your average boozer, few are as great as the Compass. It stands out because of its atmosphere and because its constantly changing ale and cider selection will keep your taste buds tantalised....More

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.
