Overlooking the cricket ground from which its name is taken, this is an 18th-century cottage-style dining pub. It has a beautiful country garden with lawn, patio and picnic tables for warmer days, while inside you’ll find fires, old-world beams, Badger ales and a warm welcome from landlords Michael and Mary Macken, who have been running the pub for over 13 years. Options on the menu range from tempting sandwiches and baked potatoes to dishes like calves’ liver with buckwheat, chestnut mushrooms and roast garlic red wine jus; or slow-cooked lamb shank with vegetable tagine, couscous flavoured with pomegranate and coriander. There are daily specials, Sunday roasts and a children’s menu, too. There is a village beer and cider festival in mid July.
