06/03/24 - no cask beer on sale. We do not know if this is a premanent situation.

Pubs Next Door, the North London pub company started by Aaron Wilson, is planning to run five sites in the capital, following the launch of its second pub with Star Pubs and Bars. The Three Compasses in Hornsey reopened in November following a £230,000 joint refurbishment with the pubco. As well as food and drink, Wilson plans to launch activities ranging from jazz nights to mother and baby quizzes. The makeover of The Three Compasses has restored and redecorated the outside of the pub, which dates back to 1896 and was designed by architect John Farrer. Thanks to Pub & Bar online magazine.

What follows may no longer be accurate as indeed might the other facilities listed. At the moment we are unable to find any info on opening hours etc etc News welcome. The pub had been operated by Laines.

A large Victorian pub which attracts a diverse range of customers, it is Hornsey's oldest public house. There are known to have been at least three different buildings on this site, the current one dating back to 1896. It was originally a coaching inn and the New River passed through its grounds. Londoners would often visit the pub on a day out to enjoy the fishing, cricket and tea grounds. It was comprehensively restored in 2004.

Main bar is light and airy, with several doors which are opened in warm weather. It won a number of Community Pub Awards as well as being a finalist in the North London Pub of the Year competitions in 2009, 2010 and 2011 although it is under new ownership since those awards were won.
