Sunday Night, 26 July 2015

Map to CricketersThe suggested meeting place on Sunday evening is The Cricketers (24 Chapel St, Ormskirk L39 4QF). As shown on Google Maps this pub is about 10 minutes walk from the University.

If you go out of the main campus entrance and walk down the gentle hill towards town, then it’s on the left hand side as you get to the traffic lights. Note that if you to go out of the back entrance and walk down Ruff Lane towards town, you will still come straight to it over on the left hand side, but it’s at the second set of lights, they just go straight on at the first set.

As described on the pub’s web site:

To accompany your meal you can choose from a fine selection of quality wines, real ales, continental lagers, craft beers, whiskies and barista coffees.
When visiting us, try to make time to have a look at the memorabilia around the walls. They provide fascinating glimpses into the history of the town, the county and – of course – their cricket clubs!

The opening times for meals on Sunday is 12-8pm.
