We were on The Telegraph deal. This represents very good value for money. All the staff at The Cricketers were absolutely charming and very helpful - there were just some aspects which did not live up to our expectations. The Cricketers was originally a very pretty, but very small pub. It has been subjected to a huge extension and the...

Always a great atmosphere when visiting this lovely pub/restaurant in Clavering. Very historic and quaint place. Xmas food menu options were good, and service was fine, but for the first time (having been many times before) I really felt it was being very commercially driven - with the focus on maximising/churning covers quickly - rather than providing a memorable customer...

Having been to this pub/restaurant a number of times, I cannot help feeling that at the moment they are trading on their name and connections. Went with friends for their Christmas menu. Four different main courses - the lamb shank was good, but oh dear the other three needed a LOT more care taken. The venison main course consisted of...

Excellent as ever. The good is super delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Beautifully decorated restaurant. Perfect for a 2-3 day break. I've been there for years and I Always come back! And I will be back next year too. Excellent location in a small village (not too far away from Cambridge).

Stayed overnight with family at the Cricketers and must say could not fault it in any way. We had a three course meal in the evening which was delicious and perfectly cooked, our compliments to the chefs.

Been going to The Cricketers for 30 years and it's always been good, this visit on a late sunday afternoon was a good as normal. I had the steak pie made with hot water pastry and winter greens very nice. I love the bar area typical English pub with low beams and cosy seating.
