A Essex hotel has been named among the 100 best in the UK according to a list published by The Sunday Times.

The Cricketers in the village of Clavering made the cut, with it being the only representative of the county on the list.

It is well known for having a celebrity connection in the local area, with Jamie Oliver's parents Trevor and Sally having owned the establishment.

They have since sold the place on, but it has still carried on its high-quality standards, with the food remaining "the star of the show" according to the publication.

On the website of The Cricketers it describes itself as "steeped in a history of family, fine food and exceptional hospitality".

It goes on to add: "The bar and dining areas have been sympathetically updated, reimagined spaces, inspired by the original 16th century fabric of the building.

"Brickwork and beams complimented by copper, wood paneling and gentle colours and textures, Our bedrooms, also refreshed, bringing the Essex countryside, inside with floral and botanical inspired fabrics, papers and paints."
