Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.
The Crooked Billet takes its name from a boomerang-shaped tree branch. We only mention this as you may have noticed that our pub is the only one in Leigh not named after a fishing vessel. But don't worry, our 16th Century tavern still has historic seafaring connections as in the early 1850s, a club was formed here to help sick fishermen. The club became known as the Billet Club.
The Crooked Billet is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
