The Crooked Billet Review

Top 10 things you need to know about The Crooked Billet pub:

1) “Gannet!” my Grandmother calls me, and has done since my formative years. My ability to consume a 12-inch pizza in mere minutes could have something to do with it.

2) My similarities with the gluttonous bird run deep. I too hunt in the wild for large quantities of sustenance to gulp down my gullet. Although, I tend to head for relaxed country village pubs known for their hearty portions instead of the rough seas. The Crooked Billet has been long been on my hit list.

3) This Young’s pub sits inconspicuously on a small copse at the really really posh end of Wimbledon. The modest exterior belies its vastness - like my belly - and fellow gannets should migrate towards the rear where feeding takes place in The Pantry.

4) If you’ve previously visited the pub, the 2014 refurb has removed the library-quiet restaurant and eerie corridor. Instead, a barn of warmth cohabits the pub’s dog-friendly space, welcoming hungry creatures with open fires, board games, bric-a-brac, and a reasonably-priced wine list covering Old and New World. Most importantly, there’s a traditional, no frills pub menu. Puy lentils is as adventurous as it gets.

5) Wooden floors; unusual paraphernalia; Latin music; jolly waitresses; a mess of spicy chicken wings providing a lips-of-fire starter; hang on a piri-piri minute, someone give Nandos copyright team a call!

6) It’s a full house of chortling, happy faces dressed in jodhpurs, riding boots and waxy jackets; male and female totty at its most stereotypical. There must be a copy of Country Life kicking about somewhere.

7) Across the table, a mini crockpot is deposited containing a frighteningly large piece of Old Spot pork belly stuffed with tiny little bits of love (or black pudding and apple as the menus calls it).

8) Pig-in-pig combinations produce a swell of food envy in greedy gannets like me. But I’m not bitter. A huge chicken pie and honey-glazed root vegetables help to move me past the pain, and the sharpness of a Friday evening manifests as a Meantime Pale Ale.

9) This is not a gastro pub. It’s an extremely upmarket variation on a Harvester binge. It’s a feast of value for money thanks to supersized American portions.

10) I didn’t finish my sticky toffee pudding and coconut ice cream dessert, though. I’m ashamed. Sorry Grandma, I let you down.
