Had a lovely lunch, very enjoyable and a nice atmosphere.
Amazing roast pig n mix was fantastic prob best roast I’ve had. 10/10
Great meal with plenty to choose from including the vegetarian options. It’s unbelievable that they are closing restaurants like these with safe COVID-19 measures in place
Great food and service at a great price all set in a beautiful place 👌
Lovely food and great service.
Would come back again
Excellent dinner here. Had the buttermilk wings to start, beef bourguignon and trifle. All 10 out of 10. Lovely ambience and christmas decorations, friendly and attentive staff. Thoroughly recommend.
Wonderful, warm outdoor cabins. Most delicious food! Loved it!
Fabulous food as always, and service was 100%
Lots of choice for food. I had the blade of beef with dauphinois potato’s. Children’s menu has lots of variety and good sized portions. Very happy!
Bao Buns were unreal! All meals were outstanding quality and will def be coming back
We ordered two adults burgers and two children’s burgers. The roles were stale and they were dry. Chips were ordinary.
Lovely food in front of an open fire
Another exquisite meal at my local , beautiful food beautifully cooked and nice friendly staff, what more could you want?
We had a lovely meal on the eve of Lockdown 2, 2020. Staff were friendly and the service was 10/10. The food was excellent - beautifully presented and it was exceptional. 4 empty plates, which unfortunately left no room for dessert! We will definitely be supporting them with take away meals over the next 4 weeks.
Can't fault it. The food is always delicious and the staff lovely and friendly.
The food was too salty however portion sizes were reasonable.
We had a lovely meal, the service was really good, perfectly enjoyable.
The menu is really clear and indicates if a dish has a gluten option available or not which is extremely helpful because I'm coeliac. I was delighted to received a beautiful roast dinner (minus the stuffing, pigs in blankets & Yorkshire pudding - you can't have it all!) Never the less, it is easily the best Sunday lunch we have had in the area.
Would be really great to see a gluten free roast dinner with all of the trimmings & some dessert options available to pre-order in the future?... Thank you to The Cricketers Arms for a lovely Sunday lunch.
We had the lamb "tear and share" for Sunday lunch. It was exquisite!
Lovely food in pleasant surroundings with good service. The "tear and share" roast lamb for two was amazing!
Great food. My
Excellent food but service still needs attention because with better service this would be a 5 star review
Sunday roast was great. Lots of flavour and food was presented brilliantly
Will definitely go again
Covid arrangements were assuring and well thought out
Sunday lunch is always good and they are good at providing gluten free options. It was quite busy but things quietened down during the time we were there which made us feel better with the social distancing. Best Sunday lunch around in my opinion.
Food was fine and service was efficient but lacked friendliness or that human connection (seemed a bit distant).
Outstanding, would highly recommend you try the Cricketers
Had a lovely evening waiter and waitress were attentive, food was delicious.
A lovely setting and decent food with good value. A nice lunch and efficient non-fussy service.
In the 13 years we've been using this pub I can't recall a better meal. Thanks for bringing our 'local' back up to standard.
Quick service, delicious food, will definitely be returning! Highly recommend
The food was amazing, such a lovely pub. We have been a few times and never disappointed.
Good food well organised nice atmosphere will be returning
I was expecting a cosy little country pub, but was greeted by a cavernous, cold hollow space! Unfortunately, this marred my overall experience as the food was excellent, albeit a bit pricey. Best Yorkshires we have ever had though!!!
It's was just a last minute get way as we both worked through covit and not had a day off in 5 month so a well earnd break
CA have risen to the distancing challenge and mostly achieve a very safe environment. The food is well constructed and delicious but the prices match.
Excellent food and service
Great range of food, staff were attentive and friendly. Definitely come back soon!
Great pub, great rooms, good food although breakfast service could be sharpened up.
Absolutely delicious! Our first time in a restaurant since March, we will 100% be returning. Home cooked perfect food, great service, fabulous pub in a picturesque position
Outstanding food. Presented beautifully. Loved our meal.
The pub has a great feel and the food was delicious. The whole family had a great evening.
