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.

DING DONG DADDIOS

We’ve hosted the Fabulous Ding Dong Daddios many times over the years. Beautiful band. Happy days. The Ding Dong Daddios bring you the most toe-tapping tunes from the heydays of the 40’s & 50’s. Take a Choochoo Ch’boogie Runaway Train with Five Guys Named Mo all the way to Mac the Knife, passing through Istanbul (not Constantinople) on the way. Their rendition of “Top Cat” is legendary. This jumpin’ & jivin’ 5-piece swing band jive suitably suited & booted 1940’s style. Double bass, guitar, percussion & trombone. Up-tempo & highly entertaining. They’re brilliant.

Glenn Tillbrook

Anyone who has witnessed Glenn live on stage can attest to the properness of his doings, as it were. Armed with ready wit, raucous vibes & a shed load of grin-inducing great songs, there are few musicians able to connect with their audience on such an immediate & warm level.
