This is an amazing venue for any sort of party and would thoroughly recommend it.’ – Mr C 3/2017

‘The people who run this club cannot do enough for you. The staff are young, enthusiastic but  an absolute credit to what the club are trying to achieve and some of the best I’ve come across. Simply the best venue in Oswestry , take family and informal to another level,  and I don’t do testimonials usually! – Mrs B 2/2017

‘We have just held a business seminar  at the Cricket Club. The best venue we have been to in past 12 months. Open, clean, spacious. Buffet fantastic. Hosted by genuine people looking after your interests. What a find! - Marches Growth Hub, Shropshire Council 11/2016

‘Hugh, Jane and all at Oswestry Cricket Club. We simply cannot express our thanks for all the time and trouble  that you all spent to ensure our wedding day was truly memorable. The town should be made aware of all that you are trying to achieve and do for the youngsters – who were truly fantastic. The feedback from all the guests about the staff blew us away.  The service and attention from those behind the bar was outstanding, not our words but those of a guest who happens to be a Michelin Star reviewer!! Not bad!! – Mr and Mrs H 11/2016

‘Jane, Hugh and all the bar staff’ – Thank you so so much for your hard work. You really did make it a day to remember’ – Mr and Mrs B 10/2016

Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the hard work that everyone at the Club put into the Beer Festival at the weekend.  It was a fantastic event, and we really enjoyed ourselves.  We hope you’ll be putting another one on next year.

I held a Help for Heroes charity evening at the club recently, and from start to finish it was a wonderful success. I can not be grateful enough at the generosity and support the Cricket Club gave me towards my charity evening. The atmosphere was electric and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Even now I still have people coming up to me commenting on such a great night. I am hoping organise another Charity evening in aid of Help for Heroes and I will definitely be holding it at the Club.

To all at the Cricket Club! This is a small, but heartfelt note to thank everyone of you who made my birthday and party one to remember. Thanks again
