Food was very tasty, and well presented, but I feel that portions were a tad small. Staff were very attentive, but I think they may have over booked their tables as they were keen for us to move.

I wouldn't even rate this one! Not child friendly at all! We went for a birthday we were sat in this tiny little space. They refused to put a chair on the end of the table as there was an extra number. Very very expensive... Between 11 of us the bill came to £350 with out starters! Staff not friendly... More

Visited this afternoon and had a lovely afternoon tea experience. I had been a little worried from previous reviews but it was very enjoyable. It made a pleasant chance to have sandwiches with thick cut bread how you would expect a pub to serve fresh homemade sandwiches. They were not dry at all and had clearly been made fresh to... More

Booked for a Sunday lunch for 8 of us ..... Venue is lovely and on the whole the food was nice, just felt that the vegetables were slightly undercooked, the carrots seemed raw. Three people in our party had the goats cheese tart and were disappointed as it was so dry and falling apart, also the apple crumble dessert was... More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon at 3pm for my sister's birthday. The sandwiches were presented on a simple round plate on cheap white value bread. There were 3 triangle sandwiches per person consisting of less than half a teaspoon of egg mayonnaise - there was so little of it that it took me a whole to figure out what, if... More

My mum bought this afternoon tea for myself and my partner as a thank you gift. I was very much looking forward to my first dining experience at the Crooked Billet as it holds a high reputation. We were booked in for a prosecco afternoon tea and our prosecco was poured straight away for us at the bar as we... More

Thank you for the feedback upon the experience. Firstly regardless of if people visit us on a voucher or not we still treat every table the same as a new independent business we only trade on our reputation, As you can probably tell in all honesty we have had some teething issues with our afternoon tea, the feedback we got...

Went for a surprise meal for my birthday, arranged by hubby. The food was absolutely lovely. Didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly impressed. It was absolutely delicious. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was perfect for a quiet meal for two.
