The Cricketers

CLAVERING, Saffron Walden, CB11 4QT

Inevitably some foodies will seek out The Cricketers in the lovely village of Clavering hoping that Jamie Oliver may be calling in on his parents that day. Landlords Trevor and Sally Oliver have been pulling pints and cooking classy food here for over 30 years; Jamie now supplies The Cricketers' kitchen with vegetables and herbs from his certified organic garden nearby. The menu almost rings with the now-famous Oliver focus on flavour. Properly hung meat and the freshest of fish are givens, along with tasty leaves. A starter of five spice Telmara Farm duck salad could be followed by a plate of Prior's Hall Farm pork belly, slow-roasted and served on a baked apple purée with rösti potato, crispy crackling and spring greens. Food aside, The Cricketers has been a community local for nearly 500 years. A refreshing pint of Nethergate Old Growler supped beneath the beams is justification enough for a visit.
