A Bit About Us

The Crooked Billet is situated halfway along Sheepridge Lane (a turning off the A4155 at Little Marlow). It was originally built in the 16th century as two cottages, then changed in 1850 to a simple Cider house.

At this time the Old Smithy was still in use and many a good tale was told in the cosy bar whilst the horses were being shod. (You could at that time sit down and have your hair cut as well). Amongst the many folk who used this old house was one Edgar Wallace, the mystery writer who is buried in the local cemetery.

Other folk who dealt in crime were not so lucky. A highwayman who terrorised the area was hanged from a nearby oak tree - an event which he was not happy about. His ghost is reputed to walk about from time to time. Thoughts of ghosts soon vanish in the pleasant bar with its old ships beams and pretty brick fireplaces, where local farmers, residents of the small Hamlet, businessmen and surrounding villagers make up the customers.

In the summer, the prize-winning garden is the ideal place for a lunch-time or evening drink, whilst in wintertime the open fires provide a warm comfortable atmosphere.

We have a Liasons Social Club meet, in the bar every Tuesday evening.
