Boasting more history than you've had hot dinners, The Cricketers and Greene Room is a pub in Brighton known for its interesting back story and bustling atmosphere.
Let's start with the history now shall we? Open since 1547, this historic Victorian boozer was once visited by the infamous Jack The Ripper; also having seen one of its landlords once burnt as a martyr. From low lying ceilings of covered in maroon furnishings, ceilings smothered in vintage regalia, a botanical garden and stocked glass shelves, The Cricketers do Sherlock chic proud. Take to their second floor Greene Room bar, dedicated to 'Brighton Rock' author Graham Greene, for more discerning style drinks thanks to its contemporary layout, fuschia fittings and prominence as a great private hire destination.
Whether it's a hazy Sunday afternoon spent gnoshing on some premium pub fare or bustling drinks on a Friday evening for those where whisky and brandy take their fancy, The Cricketers boasts guests of all ages, from far and wide, thanks to its humble vibe and laid back style; and for a nip to see one of Jack The Ripper's drinking destinations of course.
