The Cricketers is situated in the charming, rural village of Clavering, North Essex, near to the borders of both Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire and boasts lovely country walks and thatched cottages.
Trevor and Sally Oliver have owned this 16th century inn since 1976, winning awards for both its food and accommodation along the way.
A family business, children Jamie and Anna-Marie both worked at the pub when they were very young, with Jamie working in the kitchen and igniting his passion for food, and Anna-Marie in the restaurant.
Trevor and Sally were serious pioneers of the pub food revolution, gaining a reputation for only using freshly prepared ingredients – something the kitchen maintains today.
