Really nice decor and the service was pleasant. I just felt the menu was a little tired and overpriced for what it was. Very traditional but without anything standout.

The Crooked Well is all things a brilliant gastropub should be... and then some.

Featuring a grand open space with a proper pub bar/lounge area -and- an adjacent offset dining room, mouthwatering food, plus a respectable classic cocktail program, this establishment screams, 'Come south of the river!' to me.

Our soup of the day starter, made with cauliflower, was much less impressive than...more
