  • The food today was absolutely excellent. Salt and pepper chicken for starter and pate wrapped in Parma ham - absolutely delicious. My partner had the gammon and egg which he said was gorgeous and I had the turkey dinner which had everything you wanted and more. I did struggle to finish the dinner as it was quite a large portion and I’d already had a starter but the food quality was great. Can’t wait to eat here again, much better than your usual pub food.

    5 star review  We happened upon the Sticky Wicket by chance to watch a soccer match and decided to stay for dinner. They did a fantastic job serving 15 kids and 20 adults. The food was delicious and the service was spot on. Well done and thanks for having us.

  • 5 star review  We've been meaning to try this place for a while now and we were not disappointed. The food and wine were first class with the Creme Brulee and Coconut Rice Pudding to die for. The service by Katrina was second to none and the atmosphere was extremely relaxed. We will be returning here very soon.
