    A Little Gem on the Green

    “Stopped off on the way back from Stansted airport for lunch. Thought I was going to the other more famous Cricketers but glad we found this place. Andy the new man at the front of house was marvellous. He was both courteous and had a great sense of humour. Real ale kept well and there were no complaints about the the wine from her indoors. I had pork tenderloin and my wife had a beef burger, which were both cooked to perfection. Will definitely visit again.”

  • New Pub Manager Making a Difference – TripAdvisor

    “Been frequenting this pub for a few years now. In addition to the fabulous location, they have recently taken on a new Bar manager who is a big character in the community and is already making an impact on the atmosphere, attendance and quality of service. We took the family for a meal this week and the place was vibrant and buzzing. The food has always been good but the service was noticeably improved, with staff attending quickly and engaging in a friendly and proactive manner… It is definitely a good time to give the Cricketer Arms a visit!”

  • Great Food, Excellent Customer Service – Trip Advisor

    “Called into this pub/restaurant during an impromptu drive in the surrounding countryside on a sunny Sunday in August. It was busy and the restaurant inside was fully booked but we were offered a seat at the benches by the cricket pitch. We had the slow roasted sirloin of beef which was delicious with the best roast potatoes and gravy I’ve ever had with a Sunday roast in a pub restaurant. This was followed by dark chocolate mousse which was also delicious. The food was just about perfect but the customer service was something else.

    It was busy and the service reflected that. The drinks we ordered came straight away. The waiter and I can only assume the owner at all times did inform us that we may have a slightly longer wait for our food order and constantly kept us informed of the progress of our order. Sitting in the sun with our drinks was not unpleasant and we were rewarded for the slight wait with excellent food and a relaxing lunch.

    The excellent customer service took no effort at all and a lot of hospitality outlets could learn a lot from how this pub restaurant operated. Recommended both for the food and the service”

  • Delicious – TripAdvisor

    “I have been here during covid restrictions lifting and had a lovely Sunday roast. Sunday I was a guest at a friend’s birthday celebration and had a three course meal. There were 22 guests and we were all served as quick a possible together my food was absolutely delicious. I am normally so disappointed eating out and always think I could do better but my meal was so tasty. I had the crispy chicken to start with and then the plaice stuffed with a prawn mousse on risotto the flavours were spot on. Totally full but had a generous rhubarb panacotta. Staff were hard working and lovely specially in the heat and making sure everyone was happy. We will be returning. Well done”
