High quality food in a beautiful country pub and garden

This is a traditional country pub in the beautiful village of Berwick, East Sussex.The pub has a lovely garden. We eat lunch in the garden. The food was freshly cooked and high quality. Highly recommended.

After a three hour walk around the Long Man of Wilmington we decided to visit this lovely country pub, which is down a long lane just of off the A27 near to Drusillas. Not a massive menu but they do have a Special Board. Good choice of ales and cider, friendly bar staff and VERY tasty food. Large garden and... More

We visited this lovely pub in a coach party on a planned visit. They were prepared for us, the table all set and the food arrived in a reasonable time. The food and service was what we expected and the atmosphere ideal I would go again

Great pub in a lovely location over looking countryside down a quiet lane. Drinks selection were great and lots of choice. Food was limited, quality of meat was good but meals were not that special and no veggie option. Overall, food was a let down. Would come back to this pub again for drinks but not food.

I often organise coach trips of up to 50 guests. I brought such a party to the Cricketers Arms, and they not only provided excellent food in a very short timeframe (one hour) but it was also delicious, and served with a smile. Peter and his team couldn't have been more accommodating, including a last minute change of menu request... More

This pub is in Berwick near Polegate. Three of us went for lunch on a Monday afternoon to this rather well hidden pub. It is just what a country pub should be: a pretty pub in attractive gardens. It is not flash but plain and clean. We had good English food - Steak and Ale Pie with delicious chips, followed... More

Wow, what a gorgeous and inviting pub. Our friend took us after a good walk, and although we'd not booked we managed to find a table near the crackling fire. Had the most delicious steak pie with rosemary crust.......yummmmm! Would love to go back anytime. Thumbs up.

The Cricketers is a lovely pub, very unspoilt and with a reputation for the best Harveys in the area - as the beer is poured straight from the barrel in the back room - no cellar or pipes. There is a lovely log burner for winter evenings and a beautiful garden to sit in when it's warmer. It's a great... More

We had just spent the morning at Drusilla's, almost directly next door, and were on a quest for some good food for lunch. We drove out of Drusilla's car park and almost straight away turned into the Cricketers Arms. The pub has an intriguing entrance, as in, "is this the door, or is this one the way in?" The pub...
