E TA left this review about The Cricketers

Large community pub in a residential area of Gillingham which was built in the 1920s; the pub opened in 1929 and took the name from another Cricketers in the Great Lines area of Gillingham. The Cricketers is a substantial brick building with mock tudor appearance (not particularly well done), a large garden and a single three-sided bar. Inside there are gaming machines and a juke box which was much too loud. Staff are a little indifferent and locals cliquey. There were 2 ales on; I had Youngs Bitter which was badly kept and tasted insipid. While it is fine as a community local, its remoteness from other pubs and lack of beer quality mean I wouldn't recommend it for inclusion in a crawl and wouldn't make an effort to come here.
