The Cricketers

CLAVERING, Saffron Walden, CB11 4QT

The Cricketers lies in the lovely village of Clavering with winding lanes, extensive woodland and thatched cottages. The pub has served the community for almost 500 years; all the signs are here - the beams, a forest of wooden pillars, old fireplaces, while outside a wisteria surrounds the door and tables dot a rose-fringed garden. The seasonally changing dishes are expertly prepared by head chef Justin Greig and his team. Meats are properly hung, the fish is always fresh, and local organic produce is used wherever possible. Jamie Oliver, son of landlords Trevor and Sally (over 30 years here), supplies the vegetables and herbs from his certified organic garden that is nearby. Begin perhaps with roasted local ham hock and candy beetroot, or steamed Scottish mussels with smoked bacon and Adnams ale. A salad or pasta dish might follow, or you could try 30-day hung rib-eye steak, roast sweet cherry bell peppers and blue cheese sauce; or mild venison curry. The extensive wine list changes regularly and features excellent house wines and a popular Connoisseurs' Wine List, while beers are mostly East Anglian. Children are particularly welcome.
