Welcome to The Cricketers

The Cricketers pub in Shroton is nestled in the beautiful Dorset countryside, at the foot of Hambledon Hill, home of an Iron Age hill fort, and just off the Wessex Ridgeway footpath. In fact, a right of way passes right through the pub’s garden, making it a delightful spot for weary walkers to rest and enjoy some well-earned refreshments!

Although we’re proud of our food, The Cricketers is a real village pub and you are equally welcome to drop by for a pint of real ale or glass of wine. Well behaved dogs are very welcome in the bar area.

We’re also proud to be at the heart of our community and our name comes from our long association with Shroton Cricket Club, which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2007.

Come and join us at The Cricketers for great pub food, a wide selection of real ales and wines, and always a very warm welcome from the team. Whether it’s a refreshing pint you’re after, or a homely meal, you’re always welcome to pop by!
