This popular pub is well known in the area due to its giant Yorkshire puddings, which have now been served for over 30 years.
This is a pub that is passionate about our great regional dish, serving them on their own or with a range of hearty fillings.
The Crooked Billet’s wholesome menu is known for miles around, featuring slow-cooked meats, homemade short crust pastry pies, delicious meaty gravy and, of course, the infamous Yorkshire.
Owner Laura Charles prides herself on running a welcoming, friendly pub which doesn’t turn anyone away.
She told Wine & Dine Yorkshire: “While we recommend that you book, particularly on a Sunday, we wouldn’t send anyone away hungry. We are always accommodating and we make sure people leave happy and full of wholesome food.”
It is a philosophy that even extends to dogs, with quality home cooked meats available. Even man’s best friend doesn’t go hungry at the Crooked Billet!
Situated just outside Saxton, and only a stone’s throw from the famous Battle of Towton fields, the pub is a pretty and welcoming sight, with floral arrangements outside and a pleasant outside area to the rear.
The philosophy at the Crooked Billet is simple – to serve great food every single day. It continues to serve Laura and her team well, and if you enjoy hearty Yorkshire food at its best, then the Crooked Billet is undoubtedly a fantastic choice. Just make sure to book on a Sunday!
