Friendly welcome and a good pint of TT's Landlord at the Cricketers Arms in Wimborne, whilst whiling away half an hour with the i crossword.

Middle-sized, clean and tidy town pub with lively, chatty locals, I can't find too much to say about the place, but as an aside, I was quite impressed they offer the full range of Walkers excellent crisps - including the ever rarer Smokey Bacon flavour !

A lovely freindly pub we enjoyed an excelent Sunday lunch. Great atmosphere with a roaring open fire

lovely open fires, uncomfortable sofas though... difficult to get served as the bar staff were more concerned with chatting amongst themselves or to the regulars. Didn't feel particularly welcome to be honest. Beer quality was excellent though I have to say that, but unless you know the bar staff you'll probably be waiting for some time for a drink.

Not a bad little pub in the centre of Wimborne. The interior is fairly comfortable, with an L-shaped bar and a couple of little nooks and crannies, including a small games room and a secluded table in one corner. The pool table is at the opposite end of the pub. Beers were fairly mainstream - St Austell Tribute, Ringwood Best & Caledonian Flying Scotsman. Service was pleasant.

I really enjoy this pub when it's not too busy. It becomes busy when there's a game on that everyone wants to see and becomes totally crammed on friday and saturday nights.
The beer is good and the food is usually quite good too.

Its always the first place we go to start a pub crawl.....Big mistake!
Once sat down in the comfy seats or beautiful rocking chair its impossible to leave. And to top it off its got some of the best ales around.

I remember going in here last time the West Indies were touring but would they turn the TV over to watch the test match. How stupid of me to think that they would do such a thing in a pub of this name. Didn't stay for long needless to say
