Had Som Tam with Laab Moo. I was crucially asked if I wanted spicy and having said yes they duly delivered. Food was full of flavour with great fresh ingredients. Service was impeccable and I think the pub setting makes it seem friendlier. Thoughrouly recommend.

A few new faces serving the tables, but the service as friendly, efficient and polite as ever. The food remains unchanged - excellent.

The Cricketers is a small pub in a charming Cambridge backstreet with excellent service. The food is just average pub style thai, nothing special. The Beef Massaman curry was oversweet but the meat was lovely and tender with well cooked potatoes. Just a shame that...More
