We were lucky that we could book a table here early in the evening as that gave us time to wander round the restaurant taking in all the old photos displayed there before most other people arrived. We had memories of the small pub just serving beer in Nobby's time in the sixties and it is still idiosyncratic, but in... More

Well presented food and pleasant staff. 2 course lunch is £16.95. The only downside is that the whole place, internally and externally, badly needs redecoration. Shabby is an understatement.

Whilst spending a few days in Watlington, Oxford our host took us out to dinner at the Crooked Billet at Stoke Row. Located right in the Oxfordshire countryside this delightful hostelry turned out to be a gastronomic delight! An extensive but comprehensive menu was put before us and it took some time to decide which dishes to choose. Without any... More

I came out for dinner with family to have a pre-birthday celebratory dinner for my mother. I had never been here before, but my mother had, and had nothing but good things to say. It took us a while to get there, but when we did, wow.....what a fantastic place. The restaurant is small, but beautifully decorated, and the service... More

We made a big mistake by almost going to the Greyhound having booked here. This turned out to be one of those wonderful moments that an hour before was not in our plan. The crooked billet was simply brilliant. The scallops and poached pear were the genius dishes and the staff where polite humorous and hit the right tone throughout.

This is one of our favourite restaurants, two things were slightly disappointing. The waitress who served us appeared to be in a hurry to take our orders,even though we said we were not in a hurry and would like time to have a glass of wine first. Secondly my partners lamb was very dry, he never mentioned this until we... More
