Welcome to The Cricketers, Shroton which lies at the foot of Hambledon Hill in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside. The Wessex Ridgeway passes nearby.
At The Cricketers you will find great pub food, a selection of real ales, and a warm welcome from your hosts and their team. Daily deliveries of fresh fish, meat and local produce, combined with our choice of well kept real ales, mean that The Cricketers is the perfect choice for food or just to enjoy a quiet pint.
The team aim to make The Cricketers one of the finest pubs in Dorset. Although we are 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 a glass of wine. Well behaved dogs are welcome in the bar area. The pub lies between the cricket pitch and the village green. A right of way passes through the pub garden, which provides a delightful spot for weary walkers to take refreshment and recuperate from their exertions.
We are proud of our long association with Shroton Cricket Club from which the pub takes its name. The club celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2007.
.....as you descend Hambledon Hill keep the cricket pitch on your left, turn left onto Fairfield Road and after 60 yards turn right at Hill View House and you have arrived in our pub garden.
Remember, to keep hydrated in the warm weather! We are happy to fill any water bottles for free.
