The Mushroom Hall was built in the early 1860s on Mushroom Lane. It was a 2-up 2-down ale house. The first record of a meeting at The Mushroom Hall was 1864. The landlord was Joseph Topliss from Ticknall. He had two wives and a total of 10 children. Joseph ran the pub for over 30 years.

In 1874, Brunt, Bucknell and Ratcliffe of Woodville purchased the property and extended the pub, changing its name to The Cricketers Arms.

Samuel Ratcliffe married into the Bass Brewery and The Cricketers Arms eventually became a Bass house. The pub remained as a Bass house until the 1980s when it was sold off as a free house. The new owner researched the history of the pub and returned The Cricketers Arms to its original name of The Mushroom Hall and carried out further extensions and renovations.

In 2006, Paul Snape purchased The Mushroom Hall and Jackie joined him in 2012.

The Mushroom Hall serves good quality ales from Marston's, Bass and Golden Duck Brewery (Appleby Magna) along with Samuel Smith's organic Taddy Larger and cider reserve. Carling and Coors are also available.

The Mushroom Hall has pool, darts, domino and crib teams.
