    It is a few months since I last visited The Cricketers. Not sure if the establishment has new ownership but the standard of food was not as good on this visit. I have always rated it one of the highest & often recommended it to people. Sadly I feel this latest experience has made me feel it is just a reasonable standard alongside many others & for me it has lost that top position.

    Understaffed with resulting slow service. No viable vegan offerings.

    It always feels like coming home! We always arrive to a warm welcome. Smiley staff who make the visit truly comfortable. It’s a relaxing yet vibrant atmosphere. Food is always beautifully prepared and very tasty. In fact, it’s my favourite venue for a roast dinner. I have always been disappointed with Sunday roasts at other restaurants so The Cricketers Inn really hits the spot by being consistent and always delivering good quality food & service. Having the outdoor space is also lovely to relax in when the weather is good. The owner and staff have created an inviting atmosphere that we can call our local. Long may it continue!

    Went there for my husband and my step dad’s birthday (which happens to be the same day) service amazing and so was the food - we all had a roast, which is the best pub grub in Hampshire! It was a lovely sunny day so we went to the garden for a few drinks after and ended up being there for a total of 7 hours, such a lovely day! And the boys had a fab birthday

    Great service, food & surroundings & lovely touch to find an Anniversary card for our Ruby Wedding on our Table. Stuart & team make every visit enjoyable, whether that’s for a meal or a drink & would recommend a visit to anyone.
