The award winning pub group Anglian Country Inns, run by the Nye family, has opened its 6th site, The Cricketers at Weston, Hertfordshire.
The pub is set in the heart of Weston village and has been a long standing village watering hole.
ACI intends to build on its existing reputation by focusing on real ales and introducing a hearty menu using the best of local ingredients, following on its the success at The Jolly Sailors
, Brancaster Staithe - Winner of Best Family Pub in East Anglia at The Great British Pub Awards earlier this year.
The Cricketers will have a similar family appeal and will be headed up by Marek Vlk, who has spent the last four years at The Jolly Sailors. Mark Nicholls, who has also been with ACI for the last three years, will be running the kitchen. The menu will be based around Mark’s years of experience in homemade, rustic dishes including lots of bar snacks (and a sausage roll available by the inch!) to support the beer drinkers.
The site was previously owned by Rhubarb Inns and the freehold has been purchased by the Nye family which will be leased back to ACI, who will run it in its current format before investing in the site to add extra covers and garden development at a later date.
James Nye Managing Director ACI said ‘I am very excited about this acquisition. As a family we have known The Cricketers for a long time and very much look forward to seeing the pub once more become a big part of the village community’.
