Was reminded today of this mouth watered at the memory of the roast chicken we'd had. I have never been disappointed by the food here.

Can't wait to get back.more

On the right is the main restaurant with a modern, clean aesthetic. Great,...more

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
