Jolly Cricketers

Picture source: John Wernham

The Jolly Cricketers was situated on the A127. This pub was built in 1927 and replaced an earlier public house of the same name that previously stood in Nevendon Road and was probably built to take advantage of the then new A127 London - Southend Road.
The pub was owned and run by east London brewery company Taylor Walker & Co. until 1959 when Ind Coope acquired the business. In 1961 Ind Coope merged with Ansells and Tetley Walker to become Allied Breweries. The Spirit Group had ownership in the early 2000s and final owner, Punch Taverns, closed the pub and sold it on 4th July, 2003 to construction company Miravale Holdings Ltd for redevelopment. It burnt down shortly after it was closed, and was demolished soon afterwards.
