Welcome to the Crooked Billet

Owner Paul Clerehugh, along with Head Chef Chris Cook and his traditional brigade of 9 chefs, make absolutely everything on the premises – bread, cheese biscuits, stocks, sauces, sorbet, ice cream and of course our famous Crooked Billet fudge. We’re equally proud of Louise and her front of house team. Friendly, attentive, personality driven service. An enthusiastic team that smiles and wants to please. Not a bunch of kids saving up to go travelling.

The Crooked Billet cooks an eclectic menu with modern British and popular bistro favourites working in harmony.

Our Food

We use as much local and British seasonal produce when it’s good but don’t restrict or spoil a menu by avoiding using delicious ingredients from far flung destinations. Besides, we’ve been importing produce since before the Roman invasion, and who wants to go through life without chocolate.

Exclusive Hire

The Crooked Billet can accommodate approximately 70 guests and may be booked out exclusively. We are also able to connect a marquee to the pub and accommodate up to 200 guests. There is a private dining room, which at a squeeze accommodates 50 guests. This room is ideal for business functions, birthdays, and luncheon meetings, Christmas parties and so on. The private dining room is also ideal for smaller groups.

The Crooked Billet Event Calendar

The way our music nights work is that you book a table in the restaurant & pay for whatever you eat & drink. There is no obligation to have a full 3 course meal, however guests are expected to eat. 100% of the music cover charge goes directly to the artist, after Sajid Javid has had his thieving hands on 20% of the artists wages.

Richard Digance

Star of stage, screen, TV & radio. Festival headliner. A rare performer respected by comedians for his own material & by musicians for being an accomplished performer/ guitarist. Many people sing, play guitar & tell stories but not many have shared the stage with Steve Martin & Robin Williams or played guitar duet with Queen & Status Quo… or had their own prime time Saturday night TV series.

Full regular menu. £20 music cover charge.

Pixie & The Gypsies

A Welcome return from Pixie & the Gypsies. Sometimes you hear a voice that just stops you in your steps. Such a voice belongs to Taylor Notcutt, who formed Pixie and The Gypsies in 2015. Usually found playing in larger venues Soho Pizza Express live stage, Camden Jazz Café, Ronnie Scotts, 8 shows at the Guinnes Cork Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Rye Jazz & Blues Festiva

AURORA CHANSON

Take a lovers stroll through Paris, from the cobbled streets of Montmartre to the Parisian cafés along the Seine, old fashioned charm & elegance. Beautiful Aurora & her French jazz quartet. Extensive repertoire of famous French songs from Les Feuilles Mortes (Autumn Leaves) to La Mer (Beyond the Sea). Imagine a Notre Dame back street café where Stéphane Grappelli, Édith Piaf, Jacques Brel & Django Reinhardt share a glass & share their music. Enjoy a complimentary glass of tomorrow’s Beaujolais Nouveau.

ALL THINGS MUST PASS

We are determined to celebrate the anniversary of George’s first solo album after the Beatles went their separate ways.
Alex Eberhard, front man & guitarist with the legendary All Things Must Pass band, joined by fellow guitarist Bernd Rest to perform a fascinating selection of songs from the album along with material from George’s incredible diverse musical output including Something, Here Comes The Sun & My Sweet Lord.
