One of several McMullen's pubs within walking distance of each other (The Wonder and The Jolly Butchers are others), and, although I couldn't put my finger on why, was my least favourite of the three.
The pint of seasonal ale (£3.40) which I had was perfectly drinkable, so it wasn't that. Liked the cricketing memorabilia, but the long, thin layout of the pub didn't do much for me, and the shiny wooden floors and carefully mismatched furniture made it feel somewhat gastro. Maybe that's the intention, as there were as many people eating and stopping for a coffee as there were there just for a pint or two.
As one of the previous reviews said, lots of pubs are neither good nor bad, and for me, The Cricketers falls into that category.

A strange one this.

Its really just a pub youd stop in at because you like to drink in new pubs I guess. I cant think why youd return here unless you like the way the food comes out of the microwave each time.

The drinks are over-priced, so I guess thats bad, but I was tempted not to even mention it as its not so inflated that youd begrudge paying.

I guess Im struggling to find anything overtly bad about this place, and whilst that usually leaves me feeling happy enough about a pub, I cant seem to lose this overwhelming feeling that there isnt anything good about it either. That in itself isnt unusual, the unusual part is why I seem to care. Lots of pubs are neither good nor bad, but just average in every sense where you wouldnt recommend nor dissuade someone from visiting. But this place, this place seems to be so nebulous, so devoid of atmosphere or character that its the inherent vacuity that leaves me slightly perturbed.

Whilst having a drink in a pub, either at the bar or on location at a table, you expect an atmosphere, to feel part of what is going on in that pub. It could be a group of regulars at the bar talking about the night Mark couldnt remember giving Janine a piggyback all the way home. Or a works drink in full flow, with Roger and Sharon pretending theyre not having an affair. But either way, whether you know what is going on isnt important. What is important is that it is going on and that youre there too.

Otherwise, you might as well be drinking indoors, and who in the blue hell wants to be doing that?

Popped in last night for the first time in 40+ years (as well as the Crown & Horseshoes next door) and another pleasant surprise! The Cricketers is now a very welcoming pub with a good atmosphere. Service was quick and efficient and my pint of McMullens AK was very good indeed. The clientele on my visit was almost exclusively drinkers. Menu is standard pub fare and appears to be good value - we's already eaten, so perhaps next time. Better than average and because of its warm atmosphere plus it is out of the town centre, I think it is worth searching out.

Not a great pub but nice enough to drop in for a drink. From the outside, it flatters to deceive. Food is average pub grub, service is acceptable, everything about it is "just okay". Overshadowed a bit by its neigbour, the Crown & Horsehoes, but it doesn't need to be. If the Cricketers could raise its game, it has the location and ambience to be a really nice pub.
