Visited as part of Lads Who Lunch. This is the first time I've eaten at The Cricketers, and I wasn't hugely impressed. The menu wasn't exciting, though did offer fish cakes and salad. The salad was more of a dressing, than a proper accompaniment. I doubt if the cook thinks anyone actually bothers to eat the salad. The fish cake was potentially tasty, but had (presumably, I doubt if it was intentional) been left too cook for so long I needed a chain saw to get through the crust.
Very little to offer on the beer front, as most pumps had been taken over with cider "for the summer". We both settled on Steam Town's Reefer. and we were both disappointed. Served a little warm, and certainly very tired.
All in all not a great experience. But put it down to a poor day. Overall the Cricketers is an OK if not very exciting pub.
