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.

Visited this pub recently and it has had a change of managment, and wow what an improvement. The Lady in charge is so friendly and clearly knows how to run a pub. I have read the last couple of reviews and i would suggest that these people go back to see the place, you will see an improvement. I will definetely be back.
