Lovely set up and lovely to have a hot water bottle and blanket. Fish and chips was good but squid rings were squashy. Would have liked them crispy.
The boozy hot chocolate was fab!

Sat outside the other evening. We had fantastic food - love the pizzas - and the steak and chicken platter went down a treat. Mulled wine was lovely. Very reasonable priced. A great change to the fox in Willian.

Lovely food - new menu is a bit limited but otherwise tasty. Too much Peri-Peri chicken on offer, less of this and a few other items would be appreciated!

Delicious food. Great friendly atmosphere. Slight delay with some of the deserts (one came after everyone else had finished and no spoon for others) but didn’t detract! Was great to be back

Overall my wife and I had a lovely time, great food, great ambience and lovely staff. The only downfall was that they did not have any dairy free/vegan dessert choices and did not have milk alternatives like almond or oat for coffee at the end so I wasn't able to have either which was a shame. However would still return and recommend this restaurant but would appreciate more options!

During this surreal time tables are socially spaced. As always the food and service is 100% very friendly and helpful staff. A mid week treat on Tuesday’s where it’s two pizzas for the price of one and there is no skimping on size or toppings.

Great place, brilliant staff, covid safe!

Everyone’s food was great, I just thought the tomato and mozzarella pizza would have more to it, like fresh mozzarella and cherry tomatoes.
Was more of a child pizza than adult, but was fine still.

Thank you!

Had the most amazing meal here to celebrate getting married. The service was fantastic. Lauren especially, was very attentive and helpful at all times. All the other staff we met were very friendly and efficient. The food was faultless. We ordered lots of different starters and mains between the 6 of us there, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the meal. We would highly recommend the cricketers and can’t wait to return soon! Thank you!!

First time eating here. Six including 2 kids. A little chilly at 12:00. Great service. Pizzas are brilliant, other mains nothing special. Eaten at Lytton a few times which has a better menu.

The service last Sunday was exceptional! The Sunday Roasts were amazing-all freshly cooked, very very tasty, and interesting selection of vegetables. The puddings were delicious and we all had such a great experience-Thanks to "The Cricketers"- PS wine is always good quality at the Fox Group!

First time here as new to the area. Was pleased to find we could get a table within half hour of booking on line on a Sunday! Was not sure what to expect as had never been before but immediately pleasantly surprised. Clean, bright friendly staff. Quick service throughout. Food was delicious and staff very friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back and pleased to have found this gem!

Great pub. Food is fantastic. The prices are on the higher side when your looking through the menu but the quality of the food and the portion size totally justifies the price. Service is great and everyone is friendly. A+++

We had a pizza and the pork belly.
The pizza was easily one of the best you'll have. Home made. Great dough. fresh ingredients. Delicious! This is level 1. Dominos is level 4.
The pork belly was great too. Succulent and plenty of tasty sauce.

Go for it. You'll love this place.
