A warm welcome to our 16th Century country inn in North Essex.

We are very excited to reveal our investment in the new look bar, restaurant and bedrooms. 

It was important for us to retain the history of this much loved pub, but have now added some new creative quirks and extra character – think tiled pantry areas and modern style lighting.

We look forward to welcoming you back to dine inside from 14th June and hope you like our make-over as much as we do!

Close to the borders of both Hertfordshire & Cambridgeshire, the pretty village of Clavering boasts lovely walks, cycle routes and thatched cottages.

Conveniently down the road from Stansted Airport and close to the historic market town of Saffron Walden and magnificent Audley End House, we are also lucky to be a short drive to the Imperial War Museum in Duxford and Newmarket Racecourses, The Home of Horseracing.

With so much to see and do in the area, why not make a night of it and stay over in one of our newly refurbished bedrooms - it is worth it just to try our award winning breakfasts! 

Head Chef, Jonathan Bayford and his team pride themselves on their imaginative and varied menus. Changing regularly with the season, there are also delicious daily specials, so you are always spoilt for choice.

Whether you fancy a hearty breakfast, a light snack, or a three course meal The Cricketers offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, whatever the occasion.

Roast dinners are the order of the day on Sundays and people travel from miles around to try our popular Sunday roasts, with all the trimmings!

With 22-ensuite rooms on site, whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a family escape or simply somewhere to rest your head for the night The Cricketers always offers a warm and friendly welcome.

All rooms have been recently refurbished to offer a contemporary feel, with accents of greens and fawns, combined with bold and bright floral patterns. The natural theme has been brought to life in everything from the décor to the vegan Bramley toiletries.
