Join Us At The Crooked Crow Bar

Based in the centre of Leighton Buzzard (in the former Blockbusters Unit) we are now back open for business!

We are primarily an Events Bar, hosting live music, interactive quizzes, themed music nights, acoustic sessions, immersive theatre and even movies!

Of course, due to the pandemic, things are a little different, but we are still hosting a range of events every week (whilst making sure that we comply with Government regulations and keep all of our customers safe).

Due to high demand and limited capacity, we recommend you pre-book for our evening events (see TICKETS page).

Tuesday:           12pm - 10pm

Wed/Thur:         12pm - 6.30pm

Times are hard at the moment and whilst here at The Crooked Crow Bar, we hope to offer some much needed fun, making Mondays bearable might be too tall an order, even for us!!!  Therefore, we will be CLOSED on Mondays, which gives you a day to peruse our website and book up all the goodies we have instore for the remainder of the week!!!


Okay, okay, we know The Crooked Crow Bar is not strictly a pub... But we can pretend for one night a week, right?! 

After all, we do have a bar, we also have a pool table, dart board and a heap of board games AND we can offer a night of great beer, music and company! So come and join us for PUB TUESDAYs (just don't tell anyone, we are not actually a pub)!

PLUS every Tuesday (12pm-2pm) The Good Life Refill Pop Up Shop

A zero-waste shop providing an eco-friendly shopping alternative. Stock up on your cupboard staples and say goodbye to single use plastic! Click the button to their website for more details: 


It's true, there's no denying it... Long before The Crooked Crow Bar was born, our awesome little unit in Leighton Buzzard was once a BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO store.  

Well, in homage to our forefathers (& because everyone loves a good movie), we are starting BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE NIGHTS.

But, Shhh!!! They're a secret!!!

On select Wednesdays* 7pm we will be hosting fantastic old school Blockbuster Movies. Customers will be able to come down to our warm, friendly video store bar, get a classic film, bowl of popcorn and even a loyalty stamp on their (newly issued) Blockbuster card!
