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

Attractive Fuller's pub, with a remodelled interior now forming a compact 'J'. Nowadays, you enter through a door with etched 'Private Bar' glazing in the covered side alley rather than using the double front doors which are closed off. Busy, and thus a bit cramped, but the early-evening atmosphere was good. Impressive gantry above the bar counter, with a good range clips of clips indicating a guest beer policy although the four handpumps were dispensing Chiswick, Pride, ESB and the seasonal Jack Frost (£3.85) when I called in.

Reassuringly traditional Fullers boozer with a bit of character. A single L-shaped bar with bare brick walls and carpeted floor, heavy leaded window panes with mottled glass. As mentioned below it’s smaller inside than the outside suggests - an inverse Tardis. Cricket themed items as expected, including an impressive large etched mirror. No football on here, just music from the indie/alt canon (though occasional sport is shown). Board games and unusable dart board (bike in the way) though a sign said darts can be gleaned from behind the bar for a £5 deposit. Two-tier raised and decked walled garden is basic but does the job. Four Fullers ales; Seafarers (fairly good), ESB, Pride and Wild River. Bar gantry has banister-style slats displaying a large number of clips from casks past. Nice place, GBG listed and worth dropping in even if my ale wasn’t quite as top-drawer as I’d hoped (I was the only customer though…). It’s the most appealing Fullers outlet in a town of three by a distance.

Half way up South Street, little more than a stone’s throw from The Queens Head, is The Cricketers.

It’s smaller inside than you might reasonably expect from the rather substantial looking building you see from the outside. The L shaped bar features much exposed brickwork throughout, leaded frosted windows and a high ceiling. It is accessed through a door with etched glass denoting “Private Bar”, indicating that it was formerly a multi room pub. Just inside the door, there’s a large impressive mirror depicting a cricketer and, continuing the theme, there’s two framed autographed cricket bats near the TV in the far corner of the bar. It’s a comfortable, carpeted interior with mainly traditional seating.

At the back of the pub is an attractive split level walled garden where beer festivals are occasionally held and the spindled bar gantry displays a fine collection of pump clips showing beers that have been served.

It’s a Fullers tenancy which has been a CAMRA Good Beer Guide regular in recent years. On my visit, Hobgoblin was supplementing the usual Fullers range.

Probably one of the better pubs in Dorking, but, unless it was a sunny day and there was a beer festival on, I doubt that I’d make any real effort to revisit
