Great food

This has recently changed hands, but we were not disappointed. The new owners are really trying to build on the previous good reputation this restaurant/pub gained over the past 4/5 years. The food was excellent and the cheeseboard was amazing, there was more than 10 cheeses to chose from. To the... read more

This restaurant has recently changed hands. The standards were excellent; waiting unobtrusive but efficient. The new management are trying to maintain the same standards.

We visited this restaurant earlier this year and were not very impressed. We decided to try again and what a change. The food was very tasty and satisfying. The staff were extremely attentive and helpful. So pleased we gave it another chance and we will definitely be back.

This provides a good meal with a nice selection of food far starters and mains, however, I was surprised by the price. I previously came here before the change of hands a couple of years ago and was amazed with the food available and I had a wonderful meal, therefore we headed back we whole family in toe. I had...

This pub is very local to us but originally we had been rather unimpressed. There has been a change of management in recent times and we decided to give it another go. This was a good decision. We have been a couple of times in the last six weeks and intend to become regulars. The food is good and the... More

My first experience here and I have to say, I would go back in a heartbeat. The staff were friendly and attentive but not in your face - relaxed. Food was divine, so divine I wanted more but I am just greedy. Owner was talking us through some new dishes and even brought us out a sample to try. I... More

The Crooked Billet is a very quaint pub with a delightful olde world atmosphere. The food was quite pleasant but expensive for what it was. To start with I had what was described on the menu as caramelised onion tarte tatin. What it actually consisted of was a pile of onions with a piece of dry pastry placed separately on... More

First time visit since under new management. We were not disappointed. Warm friendly welcome and good table service. Beautifully cooked and presented food. Agreed, the portions aren't large but personally, I would go for quality over quantity any day and this was very much quality. A very enjoyable evening.
