Decided to eat lunch at the Cricketers today and were fortunate to book a table at short notice. This restaurant can get very busy so it’s worth booking a table. We have eaten here several times in the past but as we don’t live close by, we haven’t visited for over a year. Staff were as we have found in... More

I'm sometimes wary of 'famous' restaurants as the danger is that they live on their reputation rather than the actual service and food. But happily that isn't the case here. No doubt the keen competition that abounds in this area helps keep everyone on their toes. We popped in for an impromptu after work meal. Excellent dinner; with friendly yet... More

We all had delicious roast beef but everything was on the plate, veg, pots,Yorkshire pudding, gravy poured over. It was a bit lacking in finesse and after our previous visits of superb and reminded me... More

The pub was warm and friendly on entry and though very busy staff were very attentive and service was a perfect pace for us to enjoy our meal. The food itself was presented well and the taste mirrored this. I... More

Travelled from Inverness to Saffron Walden to see family and booked a lunch at Cricketers and we were not disappointed. The location, service and staff were first class and the food was nothing short of "Fab". Well worth the journey and looking forward to next visit and highly recommend this Restaurant to be added to your must visit and sample... More
