Delightful environment and setting and perfect for both lunch and dinner. Some good specials and good staples - particularly the fish and chips. Great range of Thornbridge beers and occasionally the odd bargain bottle of wine at £120!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!
