Dine With Us


Recently renovated in 2017, the bar area offers the perfect place to rewind. Choose from a large selection of fine wines, local ales, award-winning ciders and Luscombe soft drinks.


Serving an array of traditional dishes such as the classic fish and chips and signature seafood pancake, alongside our Josper menu which offers char-grilled meats, whole fresh fish and vegetarian dishes.


We’re strong supporters of all things local. We’re lucky enough to get our crabs, lobsters and scallops direct from the bay, just metres from the Cricket Inn and brought to us by Beesands fisherman, Alan Steer.

"Lovely coastal inn serving very good food We walked across the Coastal Path to The Cricket Inn whilst staying at Hallsands. It is a lovely characterful Inn with a great atmosphere and friendly, efficient staff. They have a very good menu and the standard of food is excellent- we both had the mixed seafood which was superb."
"Excellent service and food We were four, one in a wheelchair and one a bit food fussy and all of us were very impressed with the kindly and deferential service as well as the extremely tasty food. The mussels were the plumpest I have ever seen! It is a very open and accessible restaurant with plenty of room for the wheelchair and the many dogs who were also made very welcome."
