“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Most people who have not heard of the crooked house, when I've taken them there they think it was built crooked.
They don't believe it is through subsidence.
Put a coin on the ledge and it will roll uphill, that always amazes them.
Great place for a visit

“Shame about the service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

I love taking overseas visitors to the Crooked House it says so much about the Black Country and the Dudley area in particular.

However 'spanna 02' is correct in respect of very slow service. My wife and I have visited (separately) and can testify to this.

So I take my visitors to the pub for a pint - Banks's bitter at its very best - then on somewhere else to eat. There are plenty of other places in the vicinity.

Very silly of the managerial staff to throw away such a unique advantage with poor planning.

“Fabulous food, good service and great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

I booked here to celebrate my 40th Birthday in April. There were 16 people in total. 10 Adults and 6 Kids (2-11) . I was a little worried about going there but I wanted somewhere that was a little "different". I had a menu from The Crooked House and then sent a copy to everyone who was going so they could choose the meal prior to the celebration. I let The Crooked House know the people choices and I have to say it was absolutely FABULOUS. The location was great. The food was tremendous. The service excellent. Can't wait to go again . They put us into the conservatory which was fab. It enabled the kids to play and chatter with no worry to other diners. There was a little climbing frame just outside the conservatory which the children clambered over in between courses. Happy kids. Happy Adults. Would Deffinatly recommend here.

“Such a wonderful, natural phenomenon.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

This little public house looks like it's falling down as you pull onto the car park.. As it appears to sink into the ground on the side..
Once inside you will be amazed to see coins (or balls) actually rolling upwards - children & adults alike will be bewildered! It can be quite confusing & often makes me feel a little dizzy (I can only explain the sensation as being like vertigo), but it's well worth a visit!!
We shall definitely be going back again & again!!!

Worth going to see the building alone! Good food and great atmosphere and try to roll a coin up the table! It's a great Black Country pub!
