Welcome to
The Crooked Billet

Christmas 2021; for opening hours and menus information please see below

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 consistent entry in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide for the past 25+ years; offering real ales from local breweries for example Tring’s Side-pocket-for-a-Toad as well as nationally renowned beers.

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

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