Inside Britains drunkest pub where everything is crooked — even the name

A UK pub has gone viral on TikTok for leaving visitors feeling a little distorted — even before they've had one too many pints.

The Glynne Arms in Staffordshire, which is better known as ‘The Crooked House’, is a place where beer bottles seem to roll up tables and windows and doors seem to be lopsided.

While you may think you're experiencing some form of vertigo in the establishment — it's been that way for generations, leading it to be dubbed ‘Britain’s drunkest pub’ as it makes you feel drunk before you've even had a pint.

Inside, there is a grandfather clock standing on the wall that seems to be standing wonky, and the light fittings seem to be hanging at an angle.

If you place a bottle on a table that appears to be flat, it will seem to roll uphill, according to a TikTok posted by @draven_2000.

But there's a simple explanation as to why it looks like this.

The house dates back to the mid-1700s but it only became warped in the mid-19th century, while Britain was in the height of the industrial revolution.

It was built near to mines on the outskirts of Himley, Dudley, West Midlands, where there was a significant shift in the earth, leaving the pub lucky to be standing — even if it was on one side.

The venue is now propped up by buttresses made of bricks and metal bars that keep the structure standing.

It has a 3.5 star rating overall on TripAdvisor and of more than 900 reviews – 321 are branded 'excellent' after receiving rave reviews in the past.

The reviewer visited in December and said: "Excellent lunch, really good service. Meal delicious and reasonably priced. Will definitely go again."

Debbie said: "One of England’s hidden gems. Truly a sight to see. The building defies imagination. Try the marble trick, it’ll amaze you.

"Staff are very friendly, and food is delicious. Family friendly too. Hidden away in the English countryside."

The Crooked House is currently closed for a refurb according to their Facebook page, but they have not confirmed when they will be reopening.

The news comes after the owner of Britain's most expensive pub defended his high prices as a steak and chips cost a £87.

Tom Kerridge has doubled down on the whopping valuation of the meal at The Hand & Flower, saying the pub is the most expensive boozer in the country.

He was also criticised for selling a lamb main course for £69 and £35 fish and chips at his Harrods venue.
