The Square and Compasses


Known locally as The Stokehole, this beautifully restored 17th-century village pub is set in lovely countryside but is just 10 minutes from Chelmsford. Originally two farm cottages, the privately owned and run free house still retains its original beams and inglenook fireplaces, with antique furnishings. The locally sourced food is straightforward, served alongside a good selection of ciders and ales. As well as pub classics, the daily-changing seasonal specials might include Cromer crab cake, 28-day-hung rib-eye steak with chunky chips and roasted tomato, and orange and passionfruit tart. There is a picket fenced front garden affording views of the Essex Way, and Mediterranean-style decking area.
