I will start off by declaring my hand - I work for Thornbridge Brewery. Having said that, I'm writing this review following a number of excellent experiences here this year and because the food and service has got better and better over recent months. Since the arrival of new chefs towards the end of August, the food has been as... More

Very friendly staff - great atmos BUT the dear old chef cannot cook a venison steak. My son & I both ordered it and they were undercooked, cold, gristly and poorly presented..... We were given a 25% reduction but it should have been 100% .

What a find. Service was excellent and the pie was the best I have ever had. Lovely little extras, oil and bread whilst we were waiting, good crockery and serviette all made it an excellent experience, and the open fire!!

Visited this cute little pub with family when in Sheffield. The pub was very quaint, and I loved the log fires adding to the warm cosy feeling. We only popped in for a few drinks but the service was fantastic and the waiter found us a reserved table to sit on to enjoy our drinks before the table was needed.

Second time at this fabulous pub. Although it was bar food "only" the service and quality of food and drink were excellent. Will be back!

We have been regular visitors to the cricket and in the past we have had a good time. The last visit we made will i am afraid be our last. The food was average at best and the time to wait when the pub was not full was over 1 hour with no indication of this wait when we arrived.... More

We love the Cricket Inn. It has changed a bit recently becoming a bit more of your "upmarket" country pub, but one thing you can rely upon is great food and a great selection of beers. The staff, led by Chris, are a great team that always try their best in sometimes very busy circumstances; this place is popular, especially... More

Went back there yesterday with family. Son was at Sheffield hallam university with his residence out in the wilds of Totley years ago. He and his friends found this pub accidentally as students do. Always loved the feel of the pub. Right on a cricket pitch out in the countryside. The food was absolutely superb. The beef shin and ale... More

Attended for dinner on a Thursday evening in October. The atmosphere was great, and much busier than we had expected to find on a weekday night. We had hoped to eat in the bar area, but it seemed to be full and so were shown to the dining room which appears to be slightly more formal, but we didn't mind.... More

Welcome to the Cricket Inn, a warm welcoming pub nestled near the village of Totley. Starting it's life as a farmhouse and became a pub when the Totley train tunnel was built in the 19th century to shorten the distance to Manchester. It is currently run by chef Richard Smith and Thornbridge Brewery under the BrewKitchen group. Our resident in house Chef has been able to bring his Portuguese flair to the pub and has created some amazing and sumptuous dishes that suit all the family. We are proud to produce a range of events at the Cricket Inn and offer Real Ale Nights, a Gin Menu as well as the chance to hire the venue for a party or celebration. Quality is what we aim for so why not pop in and say hello and tell us what you think here!
