The Three Compasses

88 user reviews 5

Three Compasses is a charming pub in Dalston that doesn't conform to what you'd typically expect from a popular pub in zone two. It isn't a super-chic hipster parade with a microbrewery and a room for stroking cats; it takes a much more simple approach. This local eastend boozer finds its pleasure in screening all of the weekend games for punters as the friendly bar staff keep the pints coming long after full time.

This Clapham Common cracker of a pub doesn't mess around when it comes to sports screenings. Not only do they have two Sky boxes, Sky Sports and BT Sports, but they also have a mega HD projector and four TV screens, so you know you're sure to catch all the action at this classic spot.
