The Cricketers Inn in Long Parish, run by Matt Etherington, has been awarded the Hampshire Pub of the Month by the Hampshire Chronicle. The village pub which is featured in the Good Beer Guide 2024 has log fires and serves cask ales, wood fired pizzas, Sunday roasts and pub classics. It holds game, steak and fish nights and in the summer, visitors can enjoy its sunny beer garden and regular live music.

Pub operator, Matt Etherington said, “We are really pleased to receive this accolade. Our customers know this pub is special and this award shows that we are always working hard to keep it that way for them”.

Business development manager for Red Oak Taverns, Jonathan Seaton-Reid said, “Matt and his team run a brilliant country pub offering something for everyone. It’s great that their hard work has been recognised in this way”.
