We were welcomed warmly and our pre ordered champagne was waiting nice and chilled on our table. Fast, efficient and friendly service. Food all top notch. Nice gin and cocktail selection also.

We celebrated my mothers birthday at the crooked billet and i must say the food was amazing. The staff were all so lovely, attentive and made my mum feel special. The place is very cosy with a great atmosphere.
