user reviews of the Cricketers Arms, Littleworth

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This is how traditional village pubs used to be with beams, flagstone floors and a wood-burning stove and always a welcome from the owners Stuart and Angie. Four handpulls for ales of which Hook Norton Hooky is permanently on with the others rotating but always from local breweries and another handpull for cider again from local producers. Two beer and sausage festivals are held each year, one this last weekend with a choice of sixteen ales all local and priced at £3.10 per pint well below the average for the area. Plenty of takers for the sausages with some interesting flavours and served either as hotdogs or with mash and onion gravy, both good for soaking up the beer. This pub is a regular winner of Camra awards and Stuart will happily discuss his beers and the brewers concerned. A visit is highly recommended and unlike some other establishments the locals are friendly and will not ignore you.

Open all-day Friday the board outside proclaimed. Sadly, I was the only customer this Friday lunchtime despite the nearby industrial estate. Which is a shame as The Cricketers is a gem, hidden away in the hamlet of Littleworth just outside Wheatley. Three real ales to choose from (Hook Norton Hooky, Vale Brewery Brill Gold and West Berkshire Brewery 'Dr Hexter's Wedding Ale'). They offer a limited food menu, homemade pasties, Aunt Sally, bottle-conditioned ales for sale behind the bar as well as 'real' cider. Very friendly landlady. Very much worth dropping in for...

A favoured stop off at the end of a day's cycling, this village local has recently received the CAMRA LocAle award and is, I believe, Good Beer Guide listed. Rightly so as the beer from the nearby Shotover brewery was top notch on my last visit. Sadly, however, the landlord has seen fit to remove the enormous carved wooden spoon that used to hang on the wall beside the fireplace. Bring back the big spoon and you have a truly great pub.

I visited this pub last Sunday. It is a lovely little low ceiling pub with a pleasant atmosphere. I had e four pints of Hooky Gold which was very very good - luckily someone else was driving.
Strangely no-one was eating. The locals engaged in chat very readily and the staff were friendly. Nice clean toilets.
I had my first go at Aunt Sally, a local game perculiar to this area - it's played in leagues around here.
I enjoyed my brief visit and would highly recommend anyone passing by Oford to do the same.
One problem - no car park, which possibly makes it very reliant on trade from the local village.
