This is obviously a very popular pub, because despite being well off the beaten track it was almost full on a Tuesday lunchtime.
The lunchtime menu offers a good variety of starters and light meals, although the mains are a bit thin on the ground. Nothing too adventurous, but cooked well, and generous portions - the sandwiches in particular are massive, the bread more like thick wedges than slices! The burger got rave reviews, thick and juicy with again a very generous topping of bacon. Chips come with (just about) everything, but were nothing to write home about in an age of crispy triple cooked chips in most aspiring pub restaurants.
And herein lies my only real reservation about the Crooked Billet - the prices are pitched at the high end for a pub, but it doesn't really deliver food at quite the same level, which makes the experience a little disappointing.
Full marks for service, very helpful and friendly, and the decor is great.
