Black BuoyFormerly three 16th Century cottages near the Colne Estuary. Good pub grub and real ales. Originally called 'The Black Boy' When we visited there was a friendly crow who used to fly into the pub and pester the customers for food. But that was a while ago and he's probably a dead crow now. He has ceased to be.

1005.jpg (34764 bytes)1005b.jpg (29559 bytes)Simply wonderful 18th Century inn where quality is the order of the day in every department. Located in a delightful setting overlooking the village cricket green, the Cricketers' offers the warmest of welcomes in a classically restored English inn. There is something for everyone at the Cricketers', comfortable leather sofas and roaring log fires, smartly set out eating areas or even private dining. The quality of the real ales is superb, drawn straight from the cask with an equally impressive wine list all complimented by outstanding quality food. The service from each and every member of staff is second to none which ensures that a visit here is a very pleasant experience. If you are flying out from Stansted Airport, then a visit to the Cricketers' is a must.
