The Cricketers Arms


Well-placed for Saffron Walden and Stansted Airport, this inn enjoys a peaceful position overlooking the village green and cricket pitch in sleepy Rickling Green. The rambling bar and dining rooms have a comfortable, contemporary feel, with squashy sofas by the log fire providing the perfect winter evening refuge for tucking into vegetarian tapas; locally caught rabbit with mustard sauce; Thai fishcake with clam broth; or oven baked whole sea bass with ginger and lemongrass cream. Arrive early on summer weekends to bag a table on the terrace - a popular spot in which to relax with a pint of Doom Bar and watch an innings or two.
