The Cricket Inn scoops gold in Devon Tourism Awards

We’re delighted to be celebrating our golden success in this year’s Devon Tourism Awards!

We were crowned Tourism Pub of the Year 2018 at last week’s lavish ceremony hosted by The Highbullen Hotel in North Devon. Head Chef Jamie Smith and his wife Lisa picked up the award from sponsors Alan Knight.

Landlady Rachel Heath commented: “We’re thrilled to have been crowned pub of the year. A massive well done to the whole of the Cricket team, it couldn’t have been achieved without them.”

Manager Stuart Downie added: “To be awarded Gold for the whole of Devon is a huge achievement and an upgrade from Silver last year. It shows the hard work and dedication that the team have put in over the last 12 months.”

Now in their 9th year the awards saw entries across 26 different categories, with each undergoing a rigorous three-phase judging process, including a mystery visit.
