We went to the cricketers on Friday night and sat at the side of a log effect fire and had a few drinks before having a meal there later on. The food was nicely cooked and plenty of it. Very clean toilets there too. The staff also were very healthy.

Love this pub. Cosy, inviting and consistently excellent service from pleasant staff. We tried the midweek jazz supper club recently and had a great night, top food, good wine and an entertaining show. Thank you!

Lovely to walk into a place on a cold day and the fire is roarring and central heating is on full blast. Great selection of dishes on the menu I opted for the sausages, lentils and chorizio. Huge portions well priced really like this place.

The service, food and wine were very good and would highly recommend the creme... More

This pub was recommended to us and the food is very good. It is not a large pub and it gets busy so get there early. The food is very good quality, fresh and tasty. The prices are reasonable and variety is good.

Set in a classic Victorian Town House, within a well hit 'six' of the county cricket ground, The Cricketers offers a great range of quality Welsh real ales from our sister company, Evan Evans Brewery. Chilled continental lagers, a great wine selection & a large soft drink range. We also offer free Wi-Fi. Our beer garden is the best in Cardiff, with plenty of seating and a real sun trap!
