Nice restaurant.

The restaurant offering innovative dishes and traditional fare is recommended by guests. Outdoor picnic tables let guests enjoy meals al fresco on warm and sunny days.

Negative Reviews

Better for overnight stays.

Most of the best reviews appear to be from guests who have opted to stay overnight at the hotel. A few guests that have stayed longer thought that servicing of rooms was inadequate and infrequent.

Bathrooms in need of updating.

The bathrooms at The Cricketers Arms appear to be shabby or in need of some refurbishment.

Breakfast issues.

Though several reviewers have spoken very positively of the breakfast offered, some felt that breakfast started late or that the service wasn’t as good as it should be, and that there was rationing of portions in some cases.
