Crooked Billet

The Crooked Billet, Ryehill is an old 17th century inn. In the old Directories of Licensed Houses, the inn was shown as 'The Royal Oak' a name associated with the Restoration of King Charles II in the 17th century.

In 1880 the tavern changed its name under the ownership of Thomas Edlington to its new title 'The Crooked Billet'. The next landlord was Peter Snow, who held the tenancy for the next forty years. The inn name is quite common in Yorkshire and alludes to a ragged staff made from a tree branch, the usual weapon of the country yokel.

Although dating back to the 17th century, it received a complete reconstruction in 1939. The tavern has been owned by Messrs T Linley and Co, then David Gilmour of Sheffield, and then part of the Tetley tenanted estate.
