finally came back here after a few years. although i can't really fault it I still do feel like it's more CAMRA club hangout than pub. average time spent studying the handpumps must be over a minute in here. it's probably okay for a pint at quieter times but the nearby Turks Head and Talbot feel more authentic for me.

Recently voted Camra National POTY and I have to admit that its a very good pub. Open plan inside with various areas to sit surrounding the bar. A very traditional style pub and it was chocker on this Wednesday afternoon due to being presented with the award. A pool table is to the right of the bar if you like that sort of thing. 13 handpumps on the bar with beers from Bank Top, Ossett, Ellamd, Salopian, Cross Bay, Fyne, Bristol Beer, Melwood, Oakham and Wily Fox today. 10 real ciders and perries available plus 100 gins. Definitely worth a visit.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Cricketers Arms

A good ale pub and should not be missed out when on a visit to St Helens. The pub consists of a small central bar. As you enter the pub, there is a small seated area near a coal fire. There was a comfortable lounge from this towards the rear. The bar side hosted a blackboard with a choice of eight ales and five ciders, plus a list of the beers settling in the cellar.
We went for the locale ale initially, which was from Connoisseur Brewery, named Lucem, a decent session beer at 4.3%. Our next beers tried were Abbeydale Absolution and Fernandes Swift. Staff and the locals were friendly and chatty. This was a difficult pub to leave.
