As good as it looks

It was a lovely warm day and we dropped in off chance. Had a lovely lunch. The crispy cuttlefish was something that I have not had the chance of tasting before - but will do again. The restaurant was bright clean and airy. Service was excellent. I always find that a lemonade with lime and... read more

I am yet to visit the cricket but have looked it up on here out of interest as its at the top of our list! I am a restaurant/ pub manager and my partner a chef. Based purely on the absolutely fantastic response to the comments below I can not wait to visit the cricket inn. Well done for standing... More

This was a recommendation by the proprietors of a B & B and we chose to take our son who is at BRNC. It's a good 30 mins drive and takes in some of those very narrow Devon roads! Once there, the welcome is warm and the menu varied. I had mussels to start which I usually find light, once... More

My wife and I have been visiting this restaurant/pub for many years and we even went there when it was a small local pub. We visited earlier this week with my sister and her two friends on their annual visit and we always have a walk and then a meal at The Cricket. The restaurant is light, airy and attractive... More

HOORAY! I know I shouldn't hope for a poor review but on this occasion I had my fingers crossed, it would mean that you would not want to come back, then I panicked that you might give us a second chance but thankfully at the end of your review you stated you would not return 'Phew' The good news is...

... is what you get. Great location. Light and bright inside ... tables not crammed on top of one another (so you don't get every syllable of other people's conversations unless they are VERY loud) and the food. Fresh. Beautifully prepared and presented and served by a team who are not only pleasant, but knowledgeable about what they've got and... More

We travelled to the Cricket Inn with family who had come from Thailand especially to have one the pub's renowned Seafood Pancakes - which we have been eating for the last 10 years - only to find they're no longer cooking them. We were told they were getting too expensive to produce and the price would have had to be... More

Thank you for your review I am sorry that the Seafood Pancake is no longer on the menu but if my family were travelling over 8500 miles to try one I would have checked that they were still on. McDonalds will probably always have the 'Big Mac' and Burger King will always have the 'Whopper' but restaurants change there menu... More

Found us a table for 2 in the main restaurant and brought the drinks to our table. Starters arrived quickly and were well presented and tasted great. Within 5... More
