Set in a 16th-century tavern with historic seafaring connections, the Crooked Billet – Leigh-on-Sea serves British pub classics in a warm, welcoming ambience. Located just by the sea, the pub features a large al fresco terrace for sunny summer dining.

With Nicholson’s pubs first established in 1873, the fleet has become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality stock of ales. Constantly-featuring recipes are bolstered by a seasonally-changing range of specials on the Nicholson’s menu, with favourites including home-breaded chicken Kiev, or a sharing cottage pie. Also enjoy old-school desserts and nourishing breakfasts.

At the Nicholson’s bar, expect to find 25 guest ales changing with the seasons, a resident cask master, and carefully-matched ale and food pairing suggestions. Compiled with equal care, the Crooked Billet drinks list features easy drinking wines, artisan soft drinks and classic cocktail mixes.

Crooked Billet – Leigh-on-Sea in Southend-on-Sea is a 4-minute drive from Chalkwell Rail Station. Leigh-on-Sea Broadway (East-bound) bus station is an 8-minute walk away.

    Food great and prices too. Toilet facilities could be improved, best described as 'rustic'.

    Wonderful! They went above and beyond to make the table and our experience nice for my mums birthday, they even offered to send a member of staff to get a banner for her! The food was delicious, especially recommend the cheddar mushrooms and the sea bass with gin and tonic sauce. We are g&t fans so we had a few and they are not tight on the servings. It was very nice to have them served in crystal glasses too. All in all a very nice meal with lovely, friendly staff.

    Lovely setting overlooking the sea. The fish and chips were very good. Great range of real beer too.
