Some years ago, the pub was shifting and sinking but buttressing prevented further damage but left it tilted some 15 degrees out of true. Doors, floors and windows all sit at odd angles to one another, causing patrons difficulty upon entering the pub and walking to the bar.
The sloping floor creates an eerie illusory sensation, making drinkers feel drunk after only a pint or two

I wonder, Peter how many crooked houses there are in the UK, pubs I mean - gambling or otherwise is a different matter. Then there is the statistic of how many were built crooked like the Crooked Billet (which must have finally fallen over) near Staines. That was a very useful link you added here - a wonderful collection of old photographs too.
