Happy Hour Sunday
Sometime on a Sunday afternoon, we have an Happy Hour. Every week, the deal is different. Sometimes it's wine. Sometimes it's beer. Sometimes it's Cocktails. How do I know? I hear you ask. When is it? You plead. There are only two ways to find out. 1. Come into the pub; 2. Get onto our exclusive mailing list (see below); 3. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, it sometimes finds its way over there; but not always. Oh, hang on that's 3 ways.

The Cricketers Mailing List
We used to have a mailing list of 1000's (ok, it was a few hundred), but the response rate was crap. So we culled it. Chopped it down to less then 50. Now we have grown it back to around 100. 100 Quality email addresses of people we love and who love us. And because they love us, we do special things for them. If you want to get onto our mailing list now (with all of the priviledge that comes with it), you need to come into the pub and beg. Yes, beg; or at least introduce yourself and be friendly. We only do first names on our mailing list, and if you manage to get on it, you'll know why.

HOT WEDGES
Being a customer on a Sunday afternoon at 4pm is a Special Time. Our signature HOT WEDGES appear on the bar. For free. Gratis. No charge. On the House. No recompense required. The only payment we ask is the smile of happiness on your little face.
