The Crooked Billet is a classic new age east London pub. Bowl haircuts and fringes are everywhere you look, the menu is tasty (if overpriced), and at some point you’ll probably feel like punching someone. Worry not though, because it also has one of the best gardens in London. It’s huge, full of lots of different areas, and also has its own separate bar. This is a place to come and pitch up in en masse.
