Sicilian Menu

Paesana brings the magic of the Mediterranean to The Compasses most weekends. If you'd like an idea of our ever-changing menu here's a sample, and if you fancy it you can book online.

Wood-Fired Pizza

From 6pm every Friday, you can have a fresh wood fired pizza delivered to your table. Arrive early and choose your toppings wisely!

Bar Snacks

Come and try our tasty sausage rolls, served whenever we're open - they go perfectly with a pint. 


An unrivalled range of cask and keg beer from some of the country's best breweries, alongside a small but carefully selected range of lovely wines and spirits.

 Alcohol-free options are a house speciality - non-drinkers shouldn't have to compromise on flavour!

We're hoping to soon be making our own beer on site; watch this space for more details...
