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.

Since Nicholson’s pubs were first established in 1873, these traditional British inns have become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality range of ales. As well as always featuring British pub classics like beer-battered fish & chips and gammon & eggs, the Crooked Billet menu is complemented by a rotating selection of pie, sausage & chop and fish specials for each season.

The Crooked Billet bar is always stocked with exquisite gins, warming whiskies and fine wines to pair with favourite meals, and there’s always a superb range of seasonal and regional real ales on offer. A constant at the bar is the St Austell-brewed Nicholson’s Pale Ale, made with Cornish Maris Otter malts, and a hand-picked blend of English hops.

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'.

  • ((((( 15 May 2016 by Les from Westcliff-on-sea

    Very good again. The onl negative was they ran out of the Dead Canary ale just after they gave me a taste of it.

  • ((((( 31 March 2016 by Charlotte from Leigh-on-Sea

    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.
