Philadelphia, and its suburbs, has a competitive restaurant scene. Good food at reasonable prices is fairly easy to find. There is nothing particularly wrong with 43 Cricket (the new name for Gillane's Tavern) and in some areas of the country it would probably be considered...More

Initial visit to 43 Cricket, only to learn it's previous owner called it Gillane's Tavern. This is a new refurbished place with new operators, a clean feel, adequate, but not extensive menu, and a comfortable family feel. With 2 separate main rooms, 43 Cricket offers...More

I can't say anything distinguishes this from another pub; but that's what's nice about it. Very chill atmosphere. Easy to sit with a drink or two for a few hours.
