I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

An iconic Cooks Hill pub, The Cricketers has undergone renovations to become a welcoming relaxed venue.

The restaurant seats 100 and is decorated in an eclectic elegant style and the undercover outdoor area is relaxed and comfortable. The menu contains the usual pub grub classics as well as a nightly range of chef's specials. The children's meals for $9 are accompanied by a bowl of ice cream, topping and Milo.

The scallop and grilled watermelon entree for $16 was a delicious blend of salty and sweet flavours that was a great starter. The salt & pepper calamari was a tasty generous serve for $10.

The frozen rose cocktail for $10 was a refreshing summer drink that was a welcome change to my usual glass of wine and my partner's icy cold beer was well received.

We chose mains from the chef's specials and were more than happy with the marinated pork belly in maple and mustard for $30 and my oven roasted duck Maryland for $28. On weekdays, they have $10 lunch specials and dinner specials. The various spaces can be utilised for functions whether you have a small or large group ready to enjoy the friendly ambience.
