This has got to be one of the best Sunday lunches I've had in a long time. The food was beautifully cooked with a great selection of veg ( braised red cabbage yum ! ) and all the trimmings. The cricket inn is a traditional country pub with a lovely open fire, it is dog friendly and as they say... More

I booked a table for 5 for my wife, son, two daughters and myself for late afternoon on Christmas Day. After a bit of wait, we got a really nice table overlooking a green field, and sat back to enjoy a 7 course dinner. Six of the courses were minimalist, and the main was the 'traditional' turkey with trimmings. All... More

Booked for New Years Day, we were shown to our table and they had accommodated for our little one, pleasant greeting and good and friendly service throughout. Very tasty starters and excellent beef and chicken on the roast option. Very large and well cooked Barnsley chop (if I have it again I will ask for the fat to be crisped... More

It used to be lovely, a little on the expensive side but I didn't mind paying a bit more for a good local pub with reasonable food. Now though the food is lamentable and expensive for what it is. The service time is slow at best. Its a real shame.

I have been a regular at the Cricket Inn for years and have never been disappointed with the food. I've always been happy to pay a little bit extra for quality - but never have I eaten so little for so much as I did today. My main course was £15 and was tiny. Same with my mum's, priced at... More

Description
Welcome to the Cricket Inn, a warm welcoming pub nestled near the village of Totley. Starting it's life as a farmhouse and became a pub when the Totley train tunnel was built in the 19th century to shorten the distance to Manchester. It is currently run by chef Richard Smith and Thornbridge Brewery under the BrewKitchen group. Our resident in house Chef has been able to bring his Portuguese flair to the pub and has created some amazing and sumptuous dishes that suit all the family. We are proud to produce a range of events at the Cricket Inn and offer Real Ale Nights, a Gin Menu as well as the chance to hire the venue for a party or celebration. Quality is what we aim for so why not pop in and say hello and tell us what you think here!
