I love it, its spacious, it has nice decoration and a lot more to offer. There's a nice menu with wide variety of drinks and dishes on a reasonable price. Staff are welcoming and polite. Highly recommended!
This is our welcoming, homely and very busy “local” which is even more enticing during the winter months, with the real fires roaring, than the summer months with the buzz of people spilling out onto the Crooked Billet Green.
We recently had a steak and burger which was a little disappointing, however their homemade steak & ale pie is a firm favourite of ours. Yet to try Sunday lunch ‘tho we’ve heard it’s very good.
Great atmosphere and suitable for all ages.
Nice to find a good old traditional English pub in Wimbledon. Good range of food and great to see it being prepped. I had the Sunday roast although little bit of a wait as the place was so busy! One to book ahead for. Good atmosphere whiled away the afternoon gossiping with mates. Love it!
I thought The Crooked Billet was great. Went with my boyfriend and we both had a lovely experience. The food was awesome and at a reasonable price. The manu seemed too good - it took ages to decide as to what to eat. The service was quick, efficient and friendly and the kitchen is open which is a nice. I like to watch people cooking my food. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
I LOVE the Crooked Billet. My favourite pub in Wimbledon by far. The food is great, the ambience is great, the staff are friendly, location is awesome...one potential problem is that parking is as difficult if not more difficult then getting a camel through the eye of a needle (can't believe I've worked a Bible reference into a Qype review) but this is the same everywhere in Wimbledon and it's worth it. And it's a pleasant walk from the village. If you're going to go to any pub in Wimbledon then try here first. And have bangers and mash.
The best Sunday Lunch in Wimbledon but get there early or you will not get a table. You can't fail to fall on love with this place. Roaring fire, good food, great choice of beers and next to the common. Perfect

I really enjoy this pub, cozy, charming, and with a superb little restaurant in the back. They've got a beautiful open fire place that's amazing in the winter. And they allow dogs. What's not to like?
Also try the Hand in Hand next doors - while it isn't as quaint as the crooked billet it's just as cozy. I sometimes prefer the atmosphere over at the Hand in Hand, but the food is much better at the Crooked Billet.
I love this pub. It is a really traditional, old style pub complete with log fire. Their Sunday lunch is really good - to eat both in the pub and their adjoining restaurant. The restaurant is very atmospheric and has a very good range of well cooked dishes. It’s right on Wimbledon Common, so you can walk off your lunch afterwards!
I joined the Wimbledon Windmilers Running club who mainly run in the common and very often end up in the Crooked Billet afterwards on a Tuesday or Thursday evening. The grass area outside is shared with the pub next door but you can take your drinks out there, they will bring your food out and they have picnic blankets available.
They have a great selection of beers, ales and wines and have had a revamp lately. The prices have gone up but its worth it as the decor and feel of the place is very cosy and homely. The food is excellent and I can highly recommend the Sunday Roast.
The climb up the hill from Wimbledon station reminds me of the entrenchment of the British class system. The houses and cars get bigger and the schools become more posh and exclusive. All the wealthy people live at the top of the hill near all the trees and open space and the less wealthy at the bottom have to contend with traffic fumes and noise. The feudal folk who live on the hill also have the best pubs. This pub and its location, particularly in the summer, feel quintessentially English: the thwack of leather against willow on the edge of the common, great beer (Youngs) and Pimms on tap. As long as you can ignore the omnipresent rugger types, gossiping wimbledon wives and marauding Wombles, it's a place where you can enjoy lazy afternoons in the sunshine, forgetting your worries and getting pleasantly merry. It also does food and is open until midnight on fridays and saturdays.
