Front of house

David Stowell


David has been in pubs his whole working life. A thoroughly sporty chap in a previous life, he still has a passion for the many highs and lows of Arsenal football club, hacking around 18 holes and wearing silly outfits to watch cricket. Having said that, all his free time these days is dedicated to his young daughter Olivia, and wife Laura.

Laurence Yates

Assistant Manager

Laurence is a star, he works like a Trojan and the Cricks is always a much better place when he's around. Our resident 'cellar monkey', Laurence is never happier than when he's looking after our beers or trying the latest wines on offer.

Laura O\'Sullivan

Bar/Waiting Staff

Laura is our bright and breezy lunchtime lady, who brightens up life at the Cricketers. Although prone to the odd ditzy moment, she's super with everybody that comes here and we wouldn't be without her.

James Barnard

Bar/Waiting Staff

or Jim Bob as he is affectionately known is a real character and with is infectious laugh, you'll be sure to hear him before you see him. He's a caring kind of guy who gives up his free time volunteering with the RSPCA, what a lovely chap..


Kevin Hay

Head Chef

Kevin is Mr Cool and we've yet to find anything that fazes him. Previously an executive chef and private chef to Mohamed Al Fayed, he brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our kitchen. His food is fantastic and has a real calming influence.

Jason Blackman

Junior Sous Chef

Mr dependable is Jason, ever ready and willing. He works like a trooper and his food is pretty darn good too. He's a talkative soul, mostly about his family and new born baby boy, Connor.
