Graham Coombs left this review about The Cricketers

A friendly and traditional town local, a welcome respite from corporateness. U-shaped round the central bar, with a large sports screen to one side. Four handpumps offered Malvern Hills Bitter, Wye Valley Butty Bach, Wadworth Horizon and St Austell Tribute and in good order (Cask Marque accredited).

Moby Duck left this review about The Cricketers

This pub was very busy on a Wednesday Lunchtime, Maybe in part due to a decent well priced pub grub menu.Its a single room wrapped around a curved bar,low ceilinged with a carpeted floor and a black and white tiled standing area around the bar.Of note is an upstairs mini Cricket museum with lots of memorabilia to gaze at if this is your thing, its not particularly mine. The beer selection wasn't over exciting with Saddlers Peaky Blinder, Prescott Hill Climb Wadworth Horizon and Doom Bar being the choices available. To me it had a slight corporate feel ,a bit like a small Nicholsons pub and as such didn't really warm to the place.

Low ceilinged interior, with a deep area off to the left featuring three-quarter length varnished wood panelling and wall lamps (creating quite a nice ambience). A lighter dining area is to the right decorated with country wain-styled wallpaper and was pretty busy as the pub was doing a brisk trade in grub. Small chequerboard tiling and carpet throughout. The attractive padded semi-oval bar sported six pumps; two ciders (Rosies Pig, Hogans Pickers Passion) and three ales (Gloucester Gold, Prescott, Wye Valley Butty Bach, with Black Sheep off). My Gold was in good shape. CAMRA discount available on halves and pints, a bonus. Muted TV showing News 24 and WiFi available. Quite enjoyable, worth popping in if on an extended city centre crawl.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Cricketers

Only time for a quick stop, and whilst there are no particular distinguishing features, this place gives a decent first impression. Traditional furniture and decor. Five of six handpumps in operation, with beers including Prescott Hill Climb (£1.60 for a half, less 10% Camra discount).

Bucking Fastard left this review about The Cricketers

A low ceiling with wood panelled walls,a traditional town centre pub.The interior wraps around an L shaped bar,the interior was busy early Friday afternoon with several customers partaking of the food offering,mainly to the right hand side of the pub.The six handpumps were offering two real ciders,Gloucester Gold,Wye Valley Butty Bach and Prescott Hill Climb (decent shape) with one pump reversed.10% CAMRA discount available,the muzak was discrete and the flatscreen on mute.A good stop on a real ale crawl of the city centre,not quite a destination pub on it's own despite the traditional and interesting interior.

Gill Smith left this review about The Cricketers

Very busy pub with TV's on showing football. The bar served 2 areas and most folk were in the bar area as the other seemed set more for diners. We chose Brain FirKing Good and Bewdley Worcester Way, both of which were good. Signed cricket bats on the bar.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Cricketers

I found this well run pub to have a good relaxed atmosphere and well kept ales. The pub was traditional in deco with carpets, wood panelling. A central bar and a small right handside lounge with wallpaper and painted olive coloured panelling. Lots of pictures of cricket and country scenes. Four ales on handpump, we went for the Bewdley Worcestershire Way and Wye Valley Butty Bach. Well worth a visit this one.

Soup Dragon left this review about The Cricketers

A terraced Georgian styled town centre pub. It is in a plain white upper, with white stucco and black painted lower. The windows have been sympathetically replaced. There is a nice Georgian doorway in black, with pilasters and pediment.

The interior in an L-shaped room in wood panel and white, with a white ceiling (with a few beams) and a patterned carpet. There is a brick fire and the place is populated by the old round copper tables. The main thing in this place is that the walls are covered in various kinds of cricking memorablia; cartoons, photos and cards. It really is a place of interest. They do food, but we had just missed the serving time, so can't comment on that. I didn't see a TV and the music was general stuff at a decent level. The service was very friendly and there were a number of, what felt like, local clientele.

Beer; usual tap stuff with 3 handpulls; with Black Sheep bitter a decent Hook Norton Hooky Bitter and another that i failed to note, but wasn't too exciting.

I really liked the pub for the memorabilia and atmosphere. The beer choice was a little basic, buth the Hook Norton came to the rescue! I would definitely return.

Old Boots left this review about The Cricketers

I’ve got a soft spot for this open plan L shaped pub even though it fails in several ways. There are four pumps with a cider, Black Sheep Bitter, Old Speckled and Purity Mad Goose, guess what I had? Pretty good it was too. Obviously there is a bit of a cricket theme going on here, but it’s mainly confined to photos, cigarette cards and score sheets celebrating Worcestershire’s wins. Carpeted throughout and with panelling in one side perhaps where a lounge bar used to be. Furnished with copper topped round tables, windsor chairs and stools. A bit of an auld lads pub but the craic and the beer is usually of a good standard.

aleand hearty left this review about The Cricketers

A small one-roomed pub, tucked away in a side street close to the city’s shopping precinct. The cosy L-shaped interior features a low ceiling with heavy wooden beams, dark wooden panelling and an attractive curved bar. Seating is all very traditional, mostly based on beaten copper tables and round stools. Impressively, they’ve got the lighting spot on, with a number of wall lamps providing a comforting golden glow. As the name suggests there is a sizeable collection of cricketing memorabilia, apparently collected over a twenty-five year period.

Beers at the bar were Black Sheep Bitter, Spitfire, Old Speckled Hen and a serviceable pint of Purity ‘Mad Goose’, served by a friendly young barman. My only niggle was a radio playing in the background – a real pet hate, unfortunately. A little quiet on my Monday evening visit, but there were definitely one or two characters amongst the clientele. Overall, I rather liked the place. It’s not a ‘must visit’ from an ale drinker’s point of view, but fans of traditional interiors will be happy here. I’d certainly call again if I was in the area.
