Quite honestly you'd probably not find a better gastro pub than this! It's an idyllically pretty country pub, set down a little lane...immense and interesting food, beautifully cooked and presented,using lots of very locally sourced produce, and also from Paul's (the owner and chef) own farm. Very atmospheric interior, and particularly to be enjoyed are the music nights, where you sit and eat a fabulous meal while listening to some great musicains. There is a different artist every week.(check them out on the website). We had a memorable and lovely evening eating there last year listening to the brilliant Megan Henwood. It isn't cheap, and therefore for us a place to go to on a special occasion rather than pop out for supper of an average week night. But it is a delightful treat.

This is such a great find. Tucked away from the world, and completely off the beaten track, you'll only discover this place through a recommendation or a lucky internet stumble. It's a lovely quaint gastro-pub with stunning food and a great environment. I took my boyfriend just before Christmas, and we were seated in the smaller of the two areas, where there are only a few tables. There were a few Christmas party groups in the main restaurant area, but we were the only ones where we were, which made it all the more special. There's a great variety of choice on the menu, so much so that we couldn't decide and ended up splitting both our starters and mains so that we could try more. I had the veal chop, which I'd definitely recommend! This is a perfect little place for couples, and I can imagine it being lovely in the summer for a catch up lunch with friends too.

The Crooked Billet is quite tucked away an difficult to find, but well worth it when you do. A lovely, intimate environment, great atmosphere, delicious food, helpful staff and extensive wine list. We will definitely be coming back soon!
