Street corner pub ,but with the internal features ripped out and little to celebrate.The two large flatscreen had the racing on,there were few punters inside and the rear area by the kitchens was deserted apart from a couple on a sofa.The furniture in the rest of the pub was mixed,with more sofas at the front,an obligatory row of cinema seats as a supposed feature,and ranks of dining tables elsewhere.
On the real ale front Doom Bar and TT Landlord (past it's best) will be regulars with guests on my trip of London Pride,Wychwood Hobgoblin and a real cider.Make sure you inspect both ranks of 3 handpumps to see what's on offer.Pub grub available,mains and burgers £10-16.

Dull ale selection,dull pub and apart from the polite service I cant see a reason to return.

The Three Compasses is a large looking corner pub with a tower on its upper corner.
Once inside there is a decent sized single L shaped room with the bar facing,the room is bare boarded,the seating normal tables and chairs and leather settees.
There was a good choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Bath Ales Summer Hare which went done very well,the other beers noted were Alchemy Five Sisters,Brains Reverand james,Taylor Landlord,Adnams Broadside and St Austell Tribute.
Food was being served and the background music was crap.
I thought this was a smart and decent pub to have a drink in.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Three Compasses

Substantial two-bar pub, partly opened out to leave a 'L'-shaped layout. Airy feel in the front room, with high ceilings, large windows and a sensible mix of furniture. Darker in rear part, with pool table but more basic furniture and decor. Three handpumps in each bar, with the regular Redemption Pale (£3.50), Pride and Landlord on the back counter and Doom Bar and Marston's EPA as guests at the front. Real ales served in oversized lined pint glasses. You can see why it has been a local Camra award-winner, so worth a visit if in the area.
