We went here today for a late lunch and it was fantastic. The pub is beautiful and very traditional with loads of charm set in a beautiful setting with a lovely garden. The staff are great - very polite and can't do enough for you. The food was excellent and reasonably priced - two mains and two glasses of good... More

I have been visiting this pub for half a century! Sometimes on my own sometimes with friends, sometimes with a growing family. Excellent beer, good food nice setting, but can get pretty crowded at times.

A spontaneous visit but worth it. Excellent home made burger in brioche bun and dressed salad with good relish. Why just about everywhere serves frozen chips is beyond me. Great home made desserts and good range of drinks. Service excellent. Would go again.

It's a long time since I been in a such an outstanding pub. The beer was first class, the food outstanding VFM, the staff helpful, the atmosphere in the garden and in the bar excellent. The pity is, I live 160 miles away but I would wish to be nearer. We had a smoked fish platter, and farmers platter and... More

Having spent the night in Eastbourne and making our way to Lewes by way of Beachy Head we had lost track of time, having missed the last serving at the Sussex Ox who recommended The Cricketers. Their loss our gain. Home made cheeseburger and fries and steak and chips, just what the doctor ordered. Great food with good beer, what... More

This our third or fourth visit, and it did not disappoint. Despite being a very busy Saturday lunchtime, service was reasonable prompt. We took our cousins, very discerning people who eat out often. We all had the Seafood platter to share. It was more than enough, with a particularly good dressed crab, amongst the wonderful fishy offerings:smoked salmon,crayfish tails in... More

We were staying in Berwick and had been for a walk ending at the lovely church in Berwick. We had decided to eat at the Cricketer's Arms and we were not disappointed. The pub has an olde worlde feel but it was packed on a weekday at lunch so it is clearly very popular. We wanted a snack so we... More

Visited The Cricketers Arms for the first time last Monday and it certainly won't be the last time. We ate in the garden as the weather was beautiful. Lovely location for a leisurely meal. The garden was full of birdsong and the scent from the nearby honeysuckle was amazing. The food was delicious and the servings very generous for a... More
