The Cricketers Warfield
Service was bad considering there were only a few tables dining when we arrived. I had to go and ask one of the waiters for service. No drinks menu at the table and the food was average. Camembert starter is hugely overpriced (£14), only £1 cheaper than the burger (with chips) on the menu! Also sourdough is advertised but it was served with French stick. Blue cheese croquettes were very small and were more like balls of deep fried cheese. Nice ambience but very disappointing otherwise.
Good food, client enjoyed it as did we. Would recommend.
We waited 1 and half hours for our food. We were squished a small table so much so my granddaughter was in her car seat on the floor with people walking past with hot food, we asked to be moved and no help was offered. One of our party asked for extra roast potatoes with his meal and received 1 extra and was charged £1 for this. A £15 service charge was added to the bill, which in hindsight I wish we had not paid as we did not receive good service. We had a table of 15 near us who were very noisy, we couldn’t hear ourselves speak. All in all it was not a pleasurable lunch.
Enjoyed an excellent Sunday Lunch with good service. It’s our first time, but we will be back
We were disappointed in waiting 1 hour 15mins for our main course. I’d told them it was my birthday lunch and we had two children with us but the waitress put one starter through and we waited and waited until we were fed up. We had to ask 3 times when when our food would arrive to be told as we’d ordered one garlic bread for my son, the kitchen then delayed everyone’s main. Who takes an hour and 15 mins to eat half a sliced baguette? This is not acceptable as the waitress should have informed the kitchen OR us to advise this would happen, especially as we’d initially asked to have the starter alongside the mains at the same time. Poor service and attention to customer.
However, they were very attentive to the table next to us who they clearly knew and served them a good 40mins before us despite the fact they’d arrived 15mins after us.
Charming establishment. On a wild winters day it was welcoming. Good service and an excellent roast lunch.
Excellent Sunday Roast with generous portions. You’ll need to order a side of parsnips though, which aren’t included. Great food and excellent service 😃
Poor service , took 40 minutes for order to arrive even though the restaurant was not busy. Ordered the pork Sunday lunch which comprised of a small piece of fat, appreciate that it's pork belly but hardly any meat . Shame because we like this place and visit quite regularly.
Brilliant as per norm x
Very busy and lively, the staff coped well and were attentive and pleasant. Food was very good with a good choice of ales, shame I was on dry Jan. Happy to recommend to friends and family.
Was very popular being a Sunday lunchtime , service was very slow because of this but food was good. Pasta could have been a lot hotter but it does get cold quickly anyway. Was quite noisy but it was busy so what can you expect. Wouldn’t recommend for a romantic Sunday lunch but suited our family group of 8.
This is a very nice pub. The ambience is very pleasant and I would always recommend it for a couple of drinks. But the service at dinner was extremely slow. When we chose our dishes we were told 3 of our choices where no longer available, surely they should have told us when they gave us the menus. The food was ok but nothing exceptional, and a bit overpriced. No-one asked us if food was ok. We had to ask twice for the bill and still waited long time for it. Will not go again for dinner.
Sadly it's Christmas, so talking to each other involves shouting, as every table is doing the same. Would be best if large tables were all grouped together
The only improvement would be that the server had too many tables to take care of leaving us looking to get drinks etc
Loved it. Food, wine, service and ambience were all great
Nice pub/restaurant in a good location. Food was lovely, staff were lovely, would happily return, they looked after our daughter on her birthday. Very good.
A most enjoyable lunch. Food was excellent. Will return
Number of Covers: 7
Restaurant was very quiet at first. There was only a few tables in the restaurant.
Mains and dessert took some time to come out. (about 45 minutes - 1 hour from ordering mains and about 45 mins from mains to desserts)
- One of the mains (fish of the day) plates was a very small portion and looked like a starter next to the other plate of the same dish.
- When the dessert came out for one of the covers, it was wrong. So this had to go back and be changed. -- Coffees were ordered instead of desserts for some of our group and they were delivered almost immediately after placing the order.
Table wasn't fully cleared after mains and we had to ask a waiter to clear the last plate after the 3rd time he walked past. Also after dessert, only half the table to was cleared and we had to go to the bar to ask for the bill.
This was a evening meal for work and didn't want to make a fuss in front of our foreign guests.
I would recommend the Cricketers as the quality of food is good and enjoyable. I will go back again for a second meal but if I experience the same sort of service I would be hesitant to return.
We had a great time last Sunday. The food was delicous. The atmosphere was very festive and friendly. We had a great time. The only small negative is that we waited for over an hour for our food, but thats ok as we had mulled wine to keep us going !
From the moment we walked in we felt very welcome the guys serving us where very friendly and attentive. The food was great just what we needed lovely 3 meat roast starters and dessert where just as nice a great experience from start to finish will be back very soon
I have eaten here twice now and although the service was better this time it is still a bit slow. I had a burger which I found quite hard going as the meat was very well cooked. The staff are polite and the establishment was clean enough.
Beautiful pub, great staff, friendly service. Lovely hot fire place. We enjoyed our family lunch so much!
Excellent attentive service. Good food and lively atmosphere. Would recommend
Very nice food and atmosphere! I have a few allergies and the waiters were really lovely and friendly sorting out what I could eat! Thanks to the chefs too!
A lovely place for a pub meal with an interesting menu. A bit slow on service which is quite important when you have small children.
Maybe because it was Sunday I didn’t have a great experience but I won’t be returning any time soon. Had a table booked but that doesn’t mean anything. Still had to wait 20 mins to get a table. Then we wasn’t even spoken to for 15 mins untill we got a waiter to take our order. Food was ok nothing to shout about. Pub is in a nice area and we did get sat next to a boiling hot fire it wasn’t great.
Excellent food, good service.. nice atmosphere , would certainly return!
Very enjoyable food and we were served by the lovely Yvonne who was very friendly and gave great service.
The food was very good, as was the service. We were by a door where people went outside to smoke and it was a little cold each time someone went outside.
Other than that, no complaints. We would go back again.
Excellent food and great service would thoroughly recommend.
Excellent food, excellent service. No issues. Music was slightly on the loud side, but not too much of a problem. All good
We thought we would treat ourselves to a Sunday roast at our local pub. Bearing in mind the last Sunday roast we had there about 8months ago was not that great but thought that may have been a one off. Sadly it was no better this time. Frozen roast potatoes and they had run out of cauliflower cheese but instead of telling me that tried to serve up the burnt leftovers from the pan that had all dried out! For the money, £18 for a Sunday roast, All in all not impressed! Wont be going back in a hurry for food thats for sure!
Great place, great food! would def recommend, my friends from London insist we eat here when they come to visit!
Booked as a destination to drive to for a day out from central London, it only missed expectations on one area - it was super quiet on a Thursday lunchtime, we could hear everything well (a plus) but ambiance not so much. Definitely worth a visit
A meal with my sister, baby niece, and dog. We were reserved a perfect table given the guests and we had more than enough space for the baby's push chair. Very warm and friendly welcome, service was very personal and was done at our pace. I went for starters which were gorgeous! New additions I think to the menu. Our mains came out promptly and it all was tasty and warm. We would have stayed for dessert but someone was getting irritable. Our server was great and seemed to be managing all the tables by himself, sorry I didn't get your name and lapsed in leaving you a tip! Will come again definitely. Amazing place for dogs! Treats and water easily available.
We were a party of four and each of us felt the service was really poor. Our table was not ready when we arrived, not a problem in itself, but we were left hanging around and not asked if we would like to take a seat in the bar and order a drink in the meantime. The roast dinners had obviously been hanging around since lunch time, this was 7.30pm, and the poor staff seemed totally disorganised. Our dinner plates were removed and we were not asked if we would like desert. We decided not to bother anyway as had not enjoyed our main courses. I do not like to leave a review like this, and perhaps there were problems with staffing that night, but unfortunately it has tainted our opinion of the place. it was very overpriced for the quality of the food.
Good Ambience, Friendly Staff,Great Food and Service.
Really enjoyable time. Lovely location, friendly attentive staff, generous portions and warm atmosphere. Perhaps a little noisy when it's busy but I can't really complain about that; it's always vibrant in there.
Had a lovely time, met with friends for lunch..food was delicious.bouncy castle outside for the kids, shame the weather wasn’t the greatest. It made the most of it.
Lovely place and definitely coming back again.
Delicious and high-quality food, though service was a little slow when we visited.
