The Crooked Billet has a pretty unique location, way down at Creekmouth amid sewage plants, gravel works, and industrial estates, yet only a crane's arc from the Thames. It's a bleak place, all told (though big plans are afoot). After trudging down here, we were pleasantly surprised by its quality. It's a two-room pub last refitted in the 1930s, with stained glass all around and a comfortable feel. London Pride was the pick of the pints, and the music veered from Pat Benatar to Boston. A few fruit machines keep the lorry drivers occupied, and the selection of international banknotes behind the bar tells you about the clientele. If you're bored of riverside drinking in Richmond, Greenwich and so on, the Crooked Billet is certainly different, but don't expect ES magazine down here anytime soon.
