We ended up here after going for a drive to find a country pub for a roast, and we are really glad we did. Everything about the pub was lovely. We were warmly greeted by the staff behind the bar and shown to a free table, having our drinks carried for us. The menu isn't the cheapest but it was... More

The men ordered ham egg and chips and said they tasted lovely. Service for mains was good.....and then we waited and waited..... We ordered desserts but had... More

Four of us visited for Sunday lunch, it was very busy when we arrived but we were greeted warmly and even remembered from a previous visit, the owner Lorenzo is a fabulous host and he has certainly got this pub working well. We had drinks at the bar and the young lady who served us was a delight she was... More

Sometimes I cannot believe how lucky we are to have such a great pub on our doorstep. The restaurant is now taking things in its stride consistently turning out a first class selection of Sunday roast dinners and a great range of fresh seafood. The Valentines menu looked great ! I've posted some photos of recent highlights, including lobster, surf... More

The food was very good and the staff friendly and efficient. It is very good value with a good choice. The host came around to see that we were happy with everything. He is very friendly. The interior is well set out. The cloakrooms are very clean. This was our second visit with friends and we will return.

We were struggling to decide upon where to go for our traditional Sunday lunch out and decided to give the Cricketers a go and were glad we did. We did not book but luckily there was room , but with only one or two tables free we will book in future. We each ordered the Sunday Roast and enjoyed Pork... More
