Just returned from a weekend stay at the Cricket Inn. We were staying in a group and I can't rate the place highly enough. The staff were brilliant and the food was excellent both at breakfast and dinner. The rooms have been decorated over the closed period and the final result looks fantastic. It was a pleasure to find an... More

We have just spent an amazing weekend celebrating a friends special birthday. From the minute we stepped inside the front door to the moment we left we were catered for our every need. The staff are the lifeblood of this establishment, nothing was too much trouble. I have been in hospitality and catering for 30+ years and I have never... More

Not the kind of place many will just stumble upon. You have to be deliberately heading for Beesands, it's not really on the way to anywhere else. Tucked away half way down the front of this tiny coastal community you'll find The Cricket Inn and well worth the visit it was. We tentatively stuck out heads in the door at... More

Fabulous location, great room which became better when a sea view became available at no extra cost. Food good, very nice staff and owners. There are great sea side walks to be had. There is a fabulous little bistro just along from the pub if you fancy a change. Outstanding seafood. Dartmouth near along with other attractions.

My husband and I have two children, one of whom is 19 and eats most things (although has a couple of allergies) and the other is 11 and is a fussy eater. Trying to find a restaurant to go to on a New Years Eve if all you want is a meal is hard enough as most seem to have... More

I couldn't recommend this restaurant/pub highly enough. The greeting when we walked in was really friendly and helpful. One of our party was travelling with a dog and they made us feel very welcome. The décor and ambiance of the place is great and the food was fantastic. If its on the menu when you go definitely order the fish... More

We've just returned from a very welcome New Year's day lunch at The Cricket Inn. Although we arrived late ( our fault ) we were welcomed and served with friendliness and helpful suggestions about the menu. No hint of hurrying us. All our dishes were freshly cooked, ample in size and very tasty. We will return! Thank you to the... More

We stayed at the Cricket inn for New Years Eve, the price was very reasonable for one of the busiest times of the year! We stayed in the Oval room, which had a huge King size bed that was very comfy! It was very clean and well presented! The dinner was one of the best we've ever had, the service... More
