I had birthday lunch today at the historic and charming Royal Cricketer's Arms Pub in a unique and interesting setting overlooking bushland at Prospect.
Royal Cricketer's Arms
The interior remains much as it was back in the 1880's when it was first licensed, which for history buffs is a feast for the eyes. A warm welcome awaits visitors, with the pub serving lunch and dinner with regular specials. The courtyard out back is a delightful setting for groups, with BBQ-your-own as well as the regular menu. There is also music on Saturday and Sunday nights and trivia for lots of fun and laughs.
A visit there is a relaxing escape, as the ambience gives a feeling of being worlds way from suburbia. They have a great selection of craft beers and wines to enjoy. The food on offer is a varied version of the usual pub fare, with a twist to tempt your taste buds. I had the pumpkin feta salad and it was yummy.
Parking is not an issue and groups are welcome. It's a popular spot to celebrate a special event and a great place to enjoy a lazy lunch or occasion, especially to experience a time gone by.
