We have been coming to the Crooked Well for years & it is consistently excellent. We have had some private parties here too & can never fault the food, attentive service and atmosphere. Our favourite restaurant in South London.

good as always ! my only thing is that yesterday they run out of nut roast at 2 pm... which meant that the only veg option in the roast menus was unavailable for all the people of the second half of the lunch turn.. :(

The Crooked Well is consistently great. The music is always at a volume that allows you to have a conversation - a rare thing! The menu is delicious and the wine list has some great and varied choices.

I've been coming here for years as a local member of staff from the hospital. I was disappointed to see that you have removed the lunch time menu (which used to provide excellent value and good quality food, with a quick turn-around). I was forced to order larger main course items that I didn't really want, which were sadly of poor quality compared to the normal standard and somewhat overpriced.

Went for Sunday lunch yesterday. We had the roast beef and roast pork, both of which were disappointing. The meat was so tough that my mum couldn't even eat the pork and left most of it. It was like the meat had been pre cooked and then microwaved to heat it back up. It's a lovely venue and the staff are really sweet, just a shame about the food, we probably wouldn't eat again.

Sunday was my first visit to the Crooked Well, for a lunch with my family but also to check it out as a potential wedding reception venue. We really wanted to like it (and fully expected to given some positive online reviews) but were given little to work with and left very disappointed. The venue appeared to be fully staffed and very quiet. Everyone seemed pleasant enough but the best that can be said of service is that is was slow, vague and inattentive. We had to request to order a couple of times, bread was requested three times (about an hour in we were told it was being baked) and never came; there was much confusion over ordering of wine (several staff huddled and debating our order despite it being pointed to on the menu); one child’s food arrived 15 minutes before anything else despite asking; when our food eventually appeared so did extra unordered dishes appeared (they seemed to think we had ordered 2 whole chickens for two people - but we had to fight tooth and nail for a Yorkshire pudding), etc., etc. When I reminded servers about what we were waiting for, I got the feeling they were embarrassed and avoiding our table rather than trying to improve service and experience. This was particularly frustrating given there were up to six staff at any given time talking to each other at the bar. Perhaps this would have been less irksome if the food had been great but it was...fine. I asked for the optional service charge to be removed from our bill (not something I’ve ever done before) and was told by the server that she’d have to check with the manager. She did, and duly removed it. That was fine but seemed all the stranger - surely that should have been trigger to the manager to speak to us to ascertain what the issue was? But no. We were left with the distinct impression our poor experience, and how it reflected on the venue, didn’t matter. No compensation was offered (unless you count the aforementioned Yorkshire pudding). The upshot is we are more likely to dissuade friends from visiting the Crooked Well than recommending it. You did ask...

Very pleasant setting but wish the service were a little bit more attentive. Sunday roast was satisfactory—the chicken was good and moist, but unfortunately the skin was not crispy. The sides were pretty good but some could have been better seasoned.

Lovely Sunday lunch, just a shame you could only order lamb for two! My partner loves lamb but I’m a veggie so unfortunately he couldn’t have it. But he did enjoy the beef and my nutroast was lovely too. Beautiful building and very fast friendly service.

The pies are amazing! Everything great. This was our second time and would definitely return again. Thank you! Only constructive feedback would be an improved pudding menu. A nice crumble would go down well.
