In 1871, The Cricketer's Arms opened to serve the hamlet of Littleworth, then a separate community from Wheatley, near Oxford in Oxfordshire. The original cottage that forms the core of the pub is much older, however, and the limestone from which it was built was quarried from Wheatley and was the same stone used in the building of Windsor Castle. In the early 1900's, it was owned by Wootten & Co. of Oxford and was renowned for a beverage known as "Entire": A type of porter. The Cricketer's was subsequently owned by a number of breweries and run by many landlords and landladies before becoming a Free House in 1983.
Since 2007, it has been owned and operated by Stuart and Angie Bull with the help of a small but dedicated team of staff. The Cricketer's Arms isn't part of a chain or managed estate, nor is it tied to any brewery, it's a genuine English free house. Angie personally cooks and prepares all of the food on the menu from the finest ingredients, whilst Stuart hand picks and cares for the range of cask and bottled ales - all stored in the cellar to keep everything in prime condition. When not in the kitchen, cellar or bar, Angie and Stuart can usually be found running the behind the scenes aspects of the business including the accounts, marketing, PR and website, tending the pub's vegetable patch or herb garden, or maintaining the property.
Our priorities are, and all have been, upholding traditional values, providing a quality experience for the best value, sourcing locally and maintaining a high standard of cleanliness. We think that you'll find that our pub offers you exceptional food at an incredible price and an unparalleled range of local ales in a traditional and friendly community pub atmosphere.
