The Compasses Inn is situated on the main road (the A25) roughly halfway between Guildford and Dorking, and within Shere civil parish. It is a nice friendly pub with a large garden area ideal for sitting in with a glass of wine or a beer...More

Had lunch in the garden on a hot sunny day. Food was good with friendly service. Good selection of real ales. I enjoyed a cooling paddle in the stream with my granddaughter.

Negatives: everything a bit dated and worn, including the ladies loo experience. Plusses: the food, beer and wine were good - we had the two different steaks (they accommodated changing chips to salad for one of them), one burger and one calves liver which all...More
