Have eaten here before and once again super meals. Unfortunately let down slightly by nonchalant young female staff . No acknowledgement when entering restaurant area ,quite a time in actually being spoken to and an age before being served desserts.

Came to the Cricketts Inn twice in four days for lunch. Was greeted warmly. Food was delicious, my other half had a huge love for the gravy! Beautiful wine. Very rustic looking, perfect setting for a spot of lunch.
