Like so may people on here my review starts with, 'been coming here for years but....' Have had so many meals here ranging from the stunning to mediocre but always willing to forgive because of the great location, the focus on using local quality produce, the terrific staff and the range of quality drinks and the fact we can walk...

Absolutely awful service!! Nearly half an hour for our order to be taken. Just under three hours for one course (YES ONE MAIN COURSE) of fish and chips and a burger to be served!! Really?! I am not a chef but I do know it does not take that long to cook those two meals!! Yes it was a little... More

We had heard that this place had had a renovation recently so decided to pop in for some food. It was not at all how we remembered it, and has had a bit of a strange makeover. Lots of nice furniture that just doesn't quite seem to fit in with the building - perhaps trying to be a little too... More

A truly quality experience. They have just renovated and it looks amazing they've done a great job. The new menu was fantastic too with their new charcoal oven offering unique dishes tied with the already brilliant pub classics. The service was excellent too. The host and manager chris was polite and efficient. The rest of the team were friendly and... More

Delicate and flavoursome starter cooked to perfection. Main: steak, very good although was surprised to discover my sirloin had a bone in it! Rather thick too. Accompanying vegetables perfectly cooked. House wine paired the dishes well. Cosy open fire and friendly and knowledgeable staff. Will visit again.

Although can get very busy, this place consistently produces great food and beer. It is expensive for Sheffield but worth it for the quality. Great venue.

I have been going to this pub for a while and it has a great atmosphere, love the log fires. The staff are always consistently friendly. Always try to accommodate you even when busy. The food is great I've never been disappointed. Good selection of drinks.

We arrived as a family of 3 for Sunday lunch and was very happy with the food, and also the service that was provided by the staff. The prices slightly on the high side but I personally would pay more for good quality beef, which it was.. Would recommend

What a super surprise! The menu has certainly improved, the food is now simply wonderful. Not least the Pear & White Chocolate Crumble with creme anglaise - a total delight..... My partner has been eating here for 30 years and said it was the best meal he'd ever had in this place. Keep doing what you are doing, it is... 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!
