Quinno _ left this review about The Bell & Compass

Looks like a down market JDW from the outside. A fairly gloomy non-descript main bar that needs a lick of ceiling paint. Nicer rear raised area that has a skylight and some fabric banquette seating. Two Marstons list ales, Hobgoblin and Cumberland (cold, so-so). Mute TV showing a terrestrial channel to an audience of zero. Bland R&B music of the Yamaha preset drum loop variety. Pub grub listed on sticky menus. WiFi wouldn't connect. It exists, but why you'd choose it over other outlets in town would be a mystery outside of the weird world of pub ticking.

Popped in here during a recent pub crawl but no real ale available, just a bank of keg fonts. I remember it as the Westgate a quarter of a century ago when you could get the magnificant Morrells College Ale (7.3%) brewed just down the road. Turned around and left without a drink and a slightly watery eye.
