Three Shere Drop ales on, all delivered with a friendly welcome and a smile. What more do you want? Well, the Ranmore was a bit cloudy although it tasted fabulous. So fabulous that my partner was spinning as we tackled the steep climb back up to the North Downs Way. To be fair, the guys at the bar checked we were OK with it and I'm not afraid to sup a pint near to the end of a barrel but I'd suggest the staff just take it off sale if Ranmore misbehaves again. Sheer (Shere) heaven were the other two pints - I can't recommend the Greensand IPA enough, it's a superb pint, not too hoppy but enough to give the tastebuds a squeeze.
The pub itself is two minutes stagger from the Mill but has a the better garden to sit in. I like the Compasses.

The Compasses is a short stroll across its car park from the Gomshall Mill. They had 3 Surrey Ales beers on - Greensand IPA, Shere Drop & Ranmore Ale. Seemed to be more of a locals pub than the Gomshall Mill, with the latter probably focusing more on food. What struck me most about this pub was the prices. I don't think I paid any more in any of the other pubs during my Monday evening visit to Surrey. The pub has a lovely location next to the stream/river and has a beer garden alongside it. The interior is nothing particularly special.

Visited on a Thursday evening - our first visit for years (since the days when it was renowned for its Gibbs Mew Bishop's Tipple beer). Excellent range of Surrey Hills beer - had the Sheer Drop which was kept to perfection. Sat in the garden for an excellent (pub food) meal. I had sausages and mash in a large Yorkshire pudding - a dish which is increasingly difficult to find in Yorkshire itself these days! Thoroughly recommended. One word of caution. Only visit on a Friday evening if you like loud live jazz music!

As the Pilgrim says the range of 3 Surrey Hills beers was on sale but for whatever reason I didn't think was up to scratch and certainly not as good as when I first started drinking their beers. The accolade for taste must now go to Tilingbourne which the barman at the Gomshall Mill says they will always try and stock now so no need to divert to Wonersh. The Compasses Inn is definetely worth a visit though; it has a lovely garden and for food I gather it's good. One slight downer, the lounge bar smelt musty.

Quite quet in here for a mid Sunday afternoon, five others in the bar. Three beers on tap all from the Surrey Hills Brewery, Ranmore Ale, Sheer Drop and Greensand IPA - the latter in fine condition but that came at a price 3.90 a pint!
