Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Compasses
Still a Greene King pub, but all the branding has been removed and it now offers a good selection of guest beers from a total of seven handpumps (although I opted for the seasonal 1799 Porter, £3.30 on my latest visit). Some interior signage claims it to be Tunbridge Wells' oldest pub, and the interior retains a two-bar layout with further seating areas towards the back. Very traditional furniture and decor, with lots of dark wood about the place. Rear door leads directly into The Grove, a very pleasant little park on a sunny day and tranquil since it lies some way off the beaten track. Overall, much better than it once was and rating increased accordingly.
