Komakino . left this review about The Three Compasses

Doesn't look much cop from the outside considering the area it's in, but the word "free house" on its sign intrigued, and upon entry this appeared to be another hipster hangout with dimmed lighting, red-painted walls and ceiling and dark-green lower-third colouring. It's in essence an oblong-shaped room with the bar eyes left with a fake stone-tiled bar apron and wooden floor thereafter. Seats against the right-hand wall are semi-booths, but bench seats facing each other and old school round tables and small stools occupy the centreground between these and the bar. Like a lot of "reinvented" London pubs, the food menu is burger-based, food here courtesy of 'Goneburger'. There are a variety of trophies, cups and shields above the bar display which I'd imagine were won by various darts, crib and pool teams in years past as well as some old framed photos dotted around, including a load of boxing ones against the far rear wall. Two stumps - one unclipped and one with Hackney APA reversed as it was "playing up". Plenty of keg options so I crazily went for a pint of Beavertown Lupuloid IPA at 6.7% and £6.20 a pint to line the stomach, which to be fair was served in a funky Beavertown glass which eventually accompanied me home. Looks can deceive and this doesn't seem to be a great draw from out front, but it's a decent appropriation of an old boozer and it was busy on a Tuesday night so good on them. It's also walkable to / from the nearby Farr's School of Dancing for maximum hipster overload. (Original Review 11th August 2017)

The Three Compasses is a decent enough looking pub that is an area with run down shops,so just the areas i like doing pubs in.
Once inside there is a decent sized oblong shaped room with the bar on the left side,the room is bare boarded and the seating is comfy bench type on the right side plus some pew seats,there are normal tables and chairs in the middle area,there was a large screen to the rear showing Austria v Denmark i think.
There was one real ale on the bar which was Ilkley Pale,this was a very nice drink.
Background music was playing and menus were on the tables.
I quite liked this pub.

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

Located in quite a run down area, the traditional post-mounted pub sign is rather more obvious than the building itself (which is set back from the road by a front patio). Dark interior with red paintwork, traditional furniture and a distinctly old-looking carpet. Loud-ish music and a yound clientele, but retaining a darts board and table football. Doorman on a Friday night, despite being some distance from the nearest busy high street. Slightly surprisingly, two of the three handpumps were working, offering Crouch Vale Brewers Gold and the local London Fields Hackney Hopster (£3.60).
