CLAVERING, Saffron Walden, CB11 4QT
The Cricketers has served the community for almost 500 years and all the signs are here - from the beams and forest of wooden pillars to the old fireplaces and wisteria surrounding the door. Located in the lovely village of Clavering with winding lanes, extensive woodland and thatched cottages, the pub serves seasonally changing dishes prepared by head chef Justin Greig and his team. Meats are properly hung, the fish is always fresh, and local produce is used wherever possible. Jamie Oliver, son of landlords Trevor and Sally (over 30 years behind the bar), supplies the vegetables and herbs from his certified organic garden that is nearby. Begin perhaps with twice-baked cauliflower and Gorgonzola soufflé and follow with Trev's chicken Kiev or pork belly, roasted celeriac, shallots and pancetta with apple and cider jus. The extensive wine list changes regularly, while beers are mostly East Anglian. Children are particularly welcome.
