Cricketers Rest

The Cricketers Rest is tucked away in Kimberley, a former heartland of Nottinghamshire’s brewing industry.

Nestled in a row of beautiful cottages, the Cricks is a snug, traditional pub with dashes of country charm. Sports fans are well catered for with Sky Sports and BT Sports, as are competitive quiz-goers, music lovers, and beer drinkers. This lovely pub aims to keep the spirit of Kimberley’s heritage alive, and always features Castle Rock staples on the bar.

A small walled beer garden to the rear is a lovely spot to spend a sunny evening, with a covered area for rainy days.
