The Crooked Billet is a pub of unique character within a traditional setting. Located in Leigh-on-Sea, we’re a short stroll from Leigh-On-Sea Train Station and Leigh Broadway. Sitting opposite Billet Wharf, home to the famous Osbourne Brothers Cockle Sheds, we’re proud to be the oldest pub in the town.

The Crooked Billet is a Nicholson’s Fish House, purveyors of the finest seafood, and we’re sure that you’ll enjoy our fresh catch every time.

A unique city centre pub with a rich history

Nicholson’s Pubs are known for their individual style, exciting stories, and charming personalities — and The Crooked Billet is certainly no exception.

Taking its name from a boomerang-shaped tree branch, The Crooked Billet is the oldest pub on the High Street, and the only one that’s not named after a shipping vessel.

Our 16th century tavern is a grade 2 listed building and boasts historic seafaring connections. It’s existence spans more than 160 years, from the early 1850s, where a club was formed here to help sick fishermen. The club became known as the Billet Club.
