Easily missed. Depends what you want. More of a pub than a bar which is unusual for the area. Good place for watching sport/football - rarely gets too busy but also have efficient and very friendly bar staff. Good value as well.

In my experience though, and I'm usually a beer drinker, the quality of the bitter is indifferent at best here - I like the place but drink lager or cider here so am marking it down to a 7 because of the mediocre beer quality.

As a previous poster said, front of the pub is almost hidden it is so unimposing, and I walked past before realising I'd missed it.

Busy-ish with the afterwork crowd when I popped in on Friday evening.

Two ales on tap - Deuchars and Santa's Little Helper, with the latter very drinkable and 3.45 for a pint.

Food was on offer, but all I can tell you is that crisps were 90p a bag.

Okay enough for a couple of beers, but not somewhere you'd spend all night.

was in on thursday night, pints of Deuchars were in good condition and crisp. watched the 1st half of the liverpool match on the screen while chaating with a couple of chaps who use this as their work local. staff were attentive and the visit overall was fine. would return if in the area again

Just down the road from Farringdon tube the Three Compasses has a fairly small unimposing street front that leads into a larger room than expected. It's pretty bland though and almost "All Bar Oneish" in environment. A couple of plasma screens on the walls provide the sports entertainment. The clientele were mainly suits in for an after work pint and quite frankly they're welcome to it.

I was in here after work a few days ago. Quite liked it. Half busy, good vibe and tasty beer. Will be returning.
