Title: The Crooked Billet New Street Ash

Photos and a short history of this, now sadly closed, public house.

The story of the Czech landlord is a good one.

Played Bar Billiards for the Billet in the 1980's. It was a nice friendly pub that looked after us bunch of n`er-do-wells proud. After a few matches we realised that our best hope was to go for the wooden spoon (last in the league). However I blew our wonderful run of 0 wins one fateful night in the Sandwich Arms. I only went and won my match. That handed the Wooden Spoon to a pub in Deal. None of the team would speak to me on the way home.........
