Dave Strauss and Henry Harris join forces to present a distinctive blend of pub and bouchon at the Three Compasses - a historic pub with a rich legacy spanning three centuries. Offering an extensive selection of beers, wines, and spirits, the pub mirrors the simplicity and charm found in the menu at Bouchon Racine upstairs.

Ascend the stairs to Bouchon Racine, perched elegantly above Cowcross Street. Drawing inspiration from the bouchons of Lyon and the bistros of Paris, the team’s mission is to deliver unabashedly French cuisine, complemented by a curated wine list led by French selections and a selection of exquisite apéritifs and digéstifs — all within an inviting and informal setting. Crafted by the culinary prowess of Henry Harris, the menus at Bouchon Racine feature classics and staples from his iconic Knightsbridge restaurant, alongside seasonal daily changes. Allow the sample menus to tantalise your taste buds and prepare you for the culinary delights that await.

Every nook and cranny at Bouchon Racine exudes a glorious charm - each corner is brimming with character, soul, and beauty. Immerse yourself in the warm ambiance as you enjoy the unapologetically French flavours and enjoy a dining experience that seamlessly blends tradition with contemporary flair.

Indulge in a culinary journey at this restaurant, where each dish is a masterpiece of flavour and finesse. Begin with escargot adorned with tarragon and a Mimolette salad or savour the delicate notes of Bayonne ham paired with celeriac remoulade and classic steak tartare. For mains, delight in the harmony of flavours with cod fillet infused with saffron and mussels, or enjoy the richness of confit de canard accompanied by braised mogettes. The menu continues to enchant with rabbit doused in mustard sauce and smoked bacon. Cap off your experience with the sweet allure of desserts like creme caramel or rhubarb paired with creme fraiche and salted pralines.
