user reviews of the Compasses, Abbots Langley

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Don't judge a book by its cover - from the outside, taking in the well-kept exterior and nicely written boards advertising food, I really felt this would be quite gastro inside.
So, imagine my surprise when we walked into the saloon bar and it felt like being inside a proper old school pub.
Bar in the back corner, opposite the door, with seating around the edge and a TV on the back wall (terrestrial only, by the looks of it). Two rooms off it and a big garden too.
Four ales on tap - London Pride, Spitfire, Courage and Abbots. Went for the Spitfire which was very drinkable, especially accompanied by a packet of pork scratchings.
Did ask about Camra discounts, seeing a stand for their magazines, but nothing going.
Seemed to be quite a few regulars drinking there, and the lady and gentleman behind the bar were very pleasant.
Flicking through the menu, food looked promising, normal pub grub and reasonably priced too.
Handily, it's also opposite a bus stop taking you back into Watford.
Would come back here if I was in the area (sadly it's quite a walk from where we live).

I work locally and and have had on more than one occasion had reason to complain about the lunchtime service. Today was the last straw we ordered food at 1215 Bacon Baguette, Cheese Melt Baguette & Burger & Chips with a bottle of wine....At 1245 the food arrived luke warm... I would not recommend the lunch time service unless you have a 2hr lunch break....When I complained the bar staff offered their apologies and asked if I could wait again .. As I only have 1 hr for lunch this was not an option.... I was then given a cash refund of the returned Burger & Chips .. This is clearly not part of a chain of public houses if so they might be a bit more careful about the lack of customer service they provide.

This is a fantastic place. Nice pub with welcoming atmosphere. The gov'nor is a really nice bloke. But, the real reason I come here is for the steak (when Neil is doing the cooking). It could be the best steak I have had in the world (and I've had quite a few around the world).
