Love this pub - it's my husbands favourite for the locally brewed beer too. Kids love the stream which is a former watercress bed. Near a busy road so not too great for toddlers as the garden and steam are open to the road and...More

The Compasses is very nicely positioned next to the brook at Gomshall, with plenty of car parking. The locally brewed beer was in excellent condition, the food was standard pub fare, but very well cooked, in very generous portions.
