Great food, service and atmosphere…..
Just back from a lovely lunch at The Cricketers and it didn’t disappoint, in fact it was the freshest, beautifully cooked pub food I have had in a long while…fantastic! We sat outside in the sunny beer garden and the tables were filling up quickly. Steve had one of the famous pies (pork and beef today) and it was just sensational with crisp, homemade short crust pastry. Presented beautifully it came with a decent serving of veg (bu…ttered new potatoes, peas, beans, carrots and mange tout.) I chose the Cod in Beer batter which was cooked perfectly, served with a generous serve of crisp, golden chips and a lovely mixed leaf salad, along with tatare sauce and fresh lemon….extremely good (and I was pleased I missed breakfast and walked the dog up Melbury Hill this morning!!) The menu is so reasonably priced, not over complicated and many daily specials were on offer on the blackboard inside. We drank wonderfully chilled Stowford Press Cider and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff are wonderful, a breath of fresh air really…so polite and the attention to detail is just fantastic (our plates were cleared in no time with a friendly smile)….but all good things must come to an end, but we will be back again soon!!! Magic place.
