About Based in the spectacular North Essex countryside, The Compasses at Pattiswick is a family-run business that offers their venue for exclusive-use. It is the perfect venue with its rustic interior and beautiful scenery- creating an outstanding backdrop for your big day. The Compasses at Pattiswick was established in the 1700's but was transformed into a magnificent gastro pub in 2005. The pub has won a number of awards since it was established including, 'Best Restaurant in Essex', 'Best Pub in Essex' and 'The Great British Family Pub of the Year'. Since then they have established their own events team who have been planning and running lots of events from weddings to private parties since 2010. In 2016 the venue became an exclusive-use only venue so that they could focus on providing the outstanding events for customers.
