The Cricketers

Ahh what better way of spending a warm, sunny Tuesday than in a pub on Richmond Green. The Cricketers is a small charming pub full of regulars young and old, with friendly bar staff and a fine selection of ciders / ales.
Upon seating, we noticed a game of giant Jenga. It was at this point we decided that if the tower should fall, that person would drink a shot of what they hated most. Although everyone at some point managed to knock the tower over, there were two of our small group that managed to knock their shots over in the process, therefore avoiding the forfeit. How very convenient.
In other news: Oliver baffled an eccentric handlebar moustache man by building a bridge of Jenga blocks half way off the table. Andrew was yet again fixated by TV adverts, and Alison suffered mental exhaustion.

Off to the side of Richmond green this is defiantly a good summer pub, and a traditional one at that. While outside seating was available we decided to sit inside as it hasn’t yet gotten to quite that warm stage...yet.
we found a pair of sofas and settled in for the evening, and then started playing Jenga, whether or not they were actually there for Jenga purposes or decoration by the fireplace is still unclear but no one seemed to have an issue so we continued and all took turns in loosing, As Alex was driving his forfeit was a bag of Cheese and Onion crisps. No wonder he was annoyed when mine and Alison’s shots got knocked over by the ending of another game, it still meant I went to work the next morning with shoes smelling on Tequila and a bag that reeked of Sambucca!
