We had a fantastic evening - service was brilliant, very attentive when we needed anything but we were also given space to relax and enjoy the room! Will definitely recommend to anyone needing a private dining space. Food and drink was also excellent!

I love to visit the Crooked Well as (i) it is local and (ii) my nephew and his wife love it too! And they were kind enough to treat me this time. Peter

Warm and friendly welcome. Easy about discounts like the Taster card. Steak evening on Wednesday excellent. Nice room upstairs for events and parties. A cool venue!

One of the best roasts I’ve had in London. Excellent.

Prices are reasonable and we enjoyed the promotions. The lamb croquettes and rabbit/bacon pie were a bit on the salty side but otherwise, the food was fantastic (the fish cakes were extra special, we loved the creme brulee). Slight wait for drink orders as they were left sitting on the bar for some time, rather than brought over to our table - but overall the staff was very friendly and attentive.

Food and drink were excellent, a bit on the pricy side, but for a treat or special occasion it is worth it. The staff were friendly and helpful. I reserved a table, and I specifically requested a corner table as my father wears two hearing aids, and conversation is very difficult in a noisy room as the hearing aids pick up and amplify every sound. I booked 2 weeks in advance and we were only a party of 5 so I do not think this would have been a difficult request to accommodate. Unfortunately my request was ignored by the bookings team and we were placed in the centre of the room. I did not complain when we arrived as the room was quite busy and there were no corner tables free by then, so to ask to move would have resulted in requiring various other tables and diners to move seats which did not seem fair, and it probably wasn't the fault of the servers, who were lovely. However, this was a simple and easily accommodated request, and it really would have made a big difference to the evening, especially for my dad. I hope that in future the Crooked Well will be able to accommodate such requests for others.

Great food. Fantastic service. I accidentally spilt my full pint of cider all over the table and the waiting staff were so helpful and replaced my pint for free!

Always a reliably nice restaurant, but could have done with being a little bit warmer yesterday!

Service was slow and roast beef was very stringy and tough. Could only eat half of it. Waitress did not question this or ask if I enjoyed the food. I will not be returning. Which is a shame because I live locally.
