The staff at this rural pub are all friendly and the food is excellent. It is slightly off the beaten track but well worth the drive.

An out of the way country pub with a good atmosphere and roaring log fire on a dank day. Straightforward good pub food with generous helpings, and they do good steaks. The pub also has a number of clean and comfortable chalet style B&B rooms, with a notable full English breakfast. It can also cater for a party of 20... More

We stayed the night at The Cricketers... very basic but very cheerful. Great little pub with excellent wines, complimented by a superb breakfast served up by the extremely friendly big boss himself! We'll be back

Good value food and nice atmosphere. Bit higledy piggledy inside and locals tend to hog best seats. By fire so get there early!

Had phoned booked a table for four the week before, as a farewell dinner with friends before moving. You can imagine our disappointment on arrival to be told that it was the chef's night off and they had no trace of a booking. As our table was booked for 8pm, there was little chance that we could travel to another... More

Out of the way country pub with loads of character. Proper home made food that is not over priced . A good selection of pizzas and real ale straight from the barrel .The same dedicated landlord for over 20 years. We were impressed .

OK, I can say this place is not for everyone, but it was great when a few old mates got together there for the weekend. Nice ambience, low beams, a small menu with good food. Thai curry, sausage and mash, good steak with sauces available. There are little log cabins to the rear with two single beds that can be... More

This should tick all the country pub boxes and quite often it does. But go on an off night and it falls short. A limited but sensibly priced menu, real ale from the cask, lots of crusty locals, dog friendly and a huge open log fire all in its favour. But if your car survives the third world style pot...

I came here with my other half as he wanted 'proper English' food after being away in Canada for 2 months. We found the Cricketers arms and are glad we decided to go there. The food was amazing, good sized portions and very tasty. The pub itself was lovely and cozy too with nice staff. 5 out of 5 easily!

Delicious meal at lunchtime ,the best pork I have tasted with amazingly good crackling ...and plenty of it. Good selection of beers and wine. Home cooking at its best and prices are reasonable.friendly atmosphere also. Have eaten here before and the homemade pizzas are lovely with plenty of toppings to choose from...exception value.
