Lovely county pub, excellent pub grub and a good selection of real ale. I tried their homemade red pepper hummus it came with fresh salad and warm pitta bread yummy. I also tried a mouthful of homemade vegetable pie and some of my partners meat platter, all very good. Friendly Staff and cleanliness add to the charm of this pub.... More

Been here many times over many years. We've been regular Christmas Eve diners with a group of friends over at least five years and drop in from time-to-time all through the year. It's a charming place with friendly staff and the best Harveys anywhere...and that includes the brewery in Lewes. Beautifully kept beer straight from the barrel. The perfect thirst... More

For most of us, a lazy afternoon relaxing under a shady tree in a garden full of old English flowers, the air filled with the sound of birdsong and the aroma of lavender, roses and honeysuckle would represent England at it's best, but throw in cooled ales and dressed crab salads and, for some of us, paradise beckons. Ok -... More

Second visit to Cricketers today en route to visiting my friends in Hastings. Never fail to be impressed by lovely setting of this pub and its picturesque appearance. However, feel pub relies on this for its business. Menu very standard and disappointing and a little dated. However, praise must go to the lovely young man who served us and indeed... More

The dishes were very tasty and well presented. The atmosphere was comfortable. The ale and cider hit both spots! Nice indoor or outdoor seating with lovely gardens and birds. A great experience!

Stopped here after a hard days walking the South Downs Way, and it was a welcome oasis. The staff were friendly and very helpful, and the ales were local and delivered from the cask rather than gassy and mass produced. We booked a table for the evening and enjoyed a lovely meal with plenty of choice, local produce and specials.... More

The food was attractively presented and plentiful and the service friendly and attentive without being intrusive. we all enjoyed our main and the desserts... More

Limited menu but excellent standard of food and good size portions. Served quickly and efficiently. Very busy even mid week so book first. Not cheap but certainly good value for money, you can pay considerably more for a lot worse. Would return.
