Welcome to
The Crooked Billet

We pride ourselves on being a true ‘Free-house’ offering all you would expect from a traditional British village pub

We (Wally and Julie) have owned this land-mark Hertfordshire Freehouse for over  24 years.

During our time we have successfully established The Crooked Billet as a friendly and traditional village pub; offering all the things you would expect from your ‘local’.

Wally is very proud of his recognition for a well kept cellar with a consistant entry in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide for the past 23 years; offering real ales from local breweries like ‘Tring’ and ‘The 3 Brewers of St.Albans as well as national beers.

He is also very proud to host three successful darts teams in local leagues. 

In recent years our kitchen team; headed by Michelle have gone from strenght to strength offering tried and tested menu options; including homemade pies andChef’s specials of the day and have helped to establish us a destination pub, particularly for many walking and cycling groups.
