Hidden above the Downs between Canterbury and Ashford in Kent, the Compasses Inn is a great Rural Country Pub find whether you are looking for a pitstop whilst cycling or walking, a relaxed lunch, a special evening meal, or a pint of fine Kentish ale.

Husband and wife team Rob & Donna Taylor are just into their second year at the Compasses and clearly have a great love for what they do – reflected in the pubs’ appearance and the care and attention to every detail inside.  They have a wealth of knowledge between them gained at some of the best restaurants and hotels in London and Australia.  Robert says he feels lucky to own such a gorgeous pub in a very beautiful part of rural Kent. “As an area of Outstanding Natural beauty (AONB) we are surrounded by Game Estates, Rivers for Fishing, amazing Farmlands with Local Producers – and not to forget the stunning coastline within striking distance.”

With meats coming from as little as 1/4 mile down the road, and vegetables, herbs and fruits used from their own garden, they really have grasped the concept of fresh local produce. Donna describes the Compasses as a “muddy wellies and fine food kind of place” adding that “we have not lost sight of the pub’s history as a Fine Ale House, and we endeavour to complement this with a fine Modern British Menu offering both light lunches and full evening meals with traditional foods in contemporary style
