Amazing to think the Crooked Billet is older than America. Built in 1632, a small holding. Started selling beer in 1760, Richard Gill being the first publican.

Early 1600’s immigrants & pilgrims started to settle in colonies around Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts and begun what we term America of today.

Thursday 22nd November, celebrating American Thanks Giving turkeys on the menu. Maple glazed local free range privately educated bronze turkey from Tom & Brenda Copa’s Cookham farm along with all those glorious Yankee Doodle accompaniments. Our full regular menu is offered Thanks Giving turkey as a main course special, some American starter specials including Clam Chowder, Pastrami, pickled cucumber & lentils, New England lobster chop salad. Dessert specials including Pecan Pie, New York cheesecake and brown sugar cinnamon crusted pumpkin pie.
