Description: The Cricketers is a traditional English Pub with a twist, in the heart of Canterbury City Centre. Cosy, comfortable and friendly with a log fire, charming courtyard garden, beamed ceilings and bags of history. Serving our famous Gourmet burgers alongside traditional pub food such as fresh Fish & Chips and Kentish Ploughmans. Visitors can enjoy the fine array of Shepherd Neame ales and an equally impressive selection of wines. Food is available from 12 noon every day. We are ideally situated close to the attractions of Canterbury, including Canterbury Cathedral, Westgate Tower & Gardens and the Historic River Boat Tours.

“Good food, good atmoshere, good place to take a break.”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

When visiting Canterbury you soon get caugut by one of the fats food places to have a quick lunch. Something I do not care for very much. Drawn to The Cricketer by the recommendations on Trip Advisor my familiy decides to have our late lunch thee last Friday and we were not disappointed!
Chris, the owner of the pub and chef, welcomed us and from the start made us feel welcome and shows passion about his pub. So did the rest of the pub with local guests, friendly staff and the Total impression we got was good. Food was very good as well, we ate fish and chips, very light batter not fatty at all, and ham, eggs and chips, loods of ham with good chips and eggs to accompany. Business is done with local, reliable butchers and so on and it shows. Good quality and plenty of food on your plate at decent prices of around ten pounds and a drink. Well done! I already made an appointment for next year and promised to wrote the recommendations as soon as I got back to The Netherlands. Do not go there all atonce, mind you, We want to go there as well and the strong local atmoshere should be kept at all times.......
Keep upthe good work,Chris.

“Six !”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

So in cricket a good shot by the batsman with count for six runs, its the highest score with a single bat. Spotless with the friendliest barmaid ever, we were driving so just soft drinks and Ham egg and chips for the pair of us. Dont go there on second thoughts I would like to visit again and if you all go , there will be no space for us !!! Best food and service in a pub ever, and I don't say that lightly ,worth hunting down !

We visited for a late lunch and found a pub with really friendly service, superb burgers and great ale. Altogether the whole experience reminded me of the ideal British Pub. We loved it!
