The oldest pub in Brighton, The Cricketers dates back to 1547 and boasts a dramatic and colourful history. Historically frequented by Jack the Ripper, it was also a favourite haunt of writer Graham Greene, after whom the upstairs room is named. Nowadays the Greene room is a private function room and bar, which can be privately hired for events with up to 70 people. The pub is boldly decorated in grand Victorian style, with plush red velvet seating, tasselled curtains and paisley wallpaper. It’s not just the striking decor that makes this such a popular spot. Alongside the usual pub classics, The Cricketers offers Sunday roasts every day of the week. Expect seasonal vegetables, crispy roast potatoes, generous Yorkshire puddings and a choice of pork, beef, lamb, gammon, chicken, baked cauliflower steak or a roasted root vegetable and nut bake. Classics such as fish and chips and burgers are also available as well as lighter bites and sandwiches.
