The Crooked Spoon is a quirky little restaurant set in the heart of the Enchanted Village within the grounds of the Alton Towers Resort. Offering a family friendly-setting for breakfast, lunch and dinner, there is a great selection of family favourites and unusual offerings on the menu, while the high ceilings and wooden beams give the restaurant a delightful rural feel.
The Crooked Spoon menu spans the entire day, starting off with buffet of full English breakfasts with all the usual trimmings. The main menu features a range of British favourites with quirky Crooked Spoon twists. Start with a potted prawn cocktail or BBQ chicken skewers for starters, before sampling the battered fish and chips or a tasty choice from the Crooked Spoon grill. There is also a variety of vegetarian dishes, from a roasted summer vegetable carbonara to a slow-roasted beetroot, mixed pepper & sun-dried tomato salad.
Desserts are just as show-stopping as the main menu. Treat yourself to a Village Sundae, or be wowed by the beautiful rainbow orange meringue pie – a true family favourite.
A family-friendly restaurant with a welcoming ambience throughout the day, The Crooked Spoon is a 30-minute drive from Stoke-on-Trent.

We had our breakfast at the Crooked Spoon after our Alton towers scarefest break which we do every year but being as we are in the Covid-19 pandemic. I was worried that the restaurant wouldn't be able to cope with the volume of people in such a small space as it is normally rammed when we eat breakfast here and I'm afraid to say I was correct. The restaurant was jam packed and it definitely wasn't Covid secure. Their was a constant flow of people passing our table as it wasn't table service which I was really surprised at as I really thought they would have got rid of the buffet for now with all the mad restrictions going on, the buffet was served to you by a member of staff but it just didn't work in such a small restaurant, I frankly couldn't wait to get out of there as it really didn't feel safe being so close to that many people at this current time, the only positives I would say is the staff were efficient and really friendly and the food was as good as always. It's just a shame the way breakfast is served at the moment as it definitely should be table service in such a small restaurant while Covid is about, but once this pandemic is over I would definitely recommend the crooked spoon to anyone staying at Alton towers resort.

Nice but the new limited menu is very poor, sadly. The chips are the worst, very dry and tasteless. Breakfast is a lot less choice than the other hotels and the fried eggs are solid and very overcooked. Toast is more like bread threatened with a heat source.

Breakfast was enjoyable, however, I felt it was lacking in healthier breakfast options. More fruit choices would have helped improve this. Our lunch and evening meals were incredibly overpriced for the food quality we received. I received a bowl which contained 3 tiny teaspoon size scoops of ice cream one evening which was covered in ice particles, hardly worth the £6 I was charged. Presentation was non existent also. We didn’t order dessert again. Staff were both friendly and efficient.

This was a disaster as I booked for 6 people and was told the booking they received had us down for only 2 people, so we didn’t get to eat there and had to find somewhere else.

Table booked months ago. Seated in a drafty corridor with plastic windows. Terribly cold.

We booked to dine here twice but didn’t go the second time. The food was very limited, only 4 options for the children which one of our children didn’t like anything on the menu, the chicken goujons for kids were spicy. The adults chicken meal was too dry . There was not much option for adults either. They definitelyneed more choice especially for kids. The chips are meant to be extra crunchy, they were soft on the outside and because they were so think they were not done right and very dry inside. We just didn’t enjoy it at all and us adults are not that picky either.
