The Cricketers, Cobham
Muddy says: Set on idyllic Downside Common, The Cricketers has inglenook fireplaces, cosy nooks and comfy armchairs aplenty – plus a beautiful garden overlooking the Common.
The brasserie is a wonderfully light and airy room with an open kitchen for a touch of the theatrical. And if you’re looking for somewhere to host your next celebration, book The Oval, a delightful semi-private snug.
The food here is deliciously French in focus, with a mix of British classics and international influences thrown in. Think slow-cooked bœuf bourguignon and mussels marinière as well as pie of the day, slow-cooked suckling pig, and Malabar fish curry.
There’s an extensive drinks menu which includes a range of craft ales and beers, wines and cocktails. And for visitors of the four-legged variety, there are also water and treats available free.
