The Pub The Cricketers is a country pub and dining rooms with a large beer garden and outdoor patio dining in the summer. The pub is a beautifully refurbished and extended early 19th century public house. Once known to the locals as “The Old Orchard House”, we really are a hidden gem on Cricketers Lane in Warfield, just a short drive from Ascot Racecourse, Legoland and Bracknell. We are family friendly and also happy to welcome dogs into our bar and garden areas as we always have a jar of dog treats in the porch. Whether you want to warm yourself in the sun outside in the summer with a glass of Pimms or enjoy a perfect pint of cask conditioned real ale in front of a real log fire in the winter, the Cricketers is the perfect place for a drink. If you are looking for a great venue for a family get together, a working lunch, special occasion or a light snack we’d love you to join us.

Last night before lockdown, so fair enough the menu had been cut down to suit whatever stocks they had left. We struggled to find anything we actually liked the look of to eat. After much deliberation we tried to order only to be advised two of the choices our party of four had made weren’t available which we could have been told when we were given the menu.Two of us ordered mushrooms on sourdough toast, they were supposed to be with cream and thyme, however all you could taste was fried onions and the toast was so hard you literally couldn’t cut it. Two burger orders were raw in the middle and full of gristle so we’re not eaten (removed from the bill). This was all in all a very disappointing meal, which was a bit sad for us as last night out before lockdown and sadly will mean we will not return to the Cricketers again ☹️

Really disappointed not sure how a Camembert which would cost less than £2 can then be charged at £16 even with 3 slices of sour dough cut in half that is over 800% increase which though very nice isn’t that nice. Also automatically added a £1 surcharge for their dong charity which again isn’t a problem if you are given the choice not to be made to feel a pariah if you take it off!! They also add service to the charitable donation I mean seriously sort this out !! Would not recommend and will not be back unless you review your pricing as you are a pub not Michelin stared restaurant !!!!

We’ve been to The Cricketers before and had no complaints but this time we were very disappointed. We both had the roast pork belly and it was the worst we’ve ever had - fatty, hard to cut what little meat was on it; and very salty. We complained to the staff who didn’t seem surprised and merely said they’d tell the chef. The vegetables were nice but sparse - two small roast potatoes and half a roast carrot. Not worth the £16 per course we paid for it. The dessert was heavenly and we’ve had a good meal in The Cricketers before so will probably go back but this was a disappointing meal.

The service was very good. The lady who looked after us was excellent. Thank you.
Two people in our group had the pork belly roast. The fat was not fully rendered which made it over fatty.
I did not like the coating on the roast potatoes which was oniony and not necessary on a roast potato.
Two of us had roast beef which was rare. We were not asked how we would prefer it.
We will try a different place for our next Sunday roast.

Food was great, service was a little slow. Two of us were not drinking so we had 2 soft drinks each with a splash of lime in. Having to pay £1.15 for a splash of lime 4 times rather took the edge off of the evening. Won’t be returning any time soon

The Cricketers were maintaining half price meals through September, so we took advantage. Friendly service and choice of inside or outside. The skin-on fries turned out to be thin French fries, without skin, but they immediately swapped them for thicker chips when asked, doing their best. A very pleasant afternoon with good food.
