If you can brave this stretch of the dangerous and busy A27 it could be worth your journey. This little hostelry is tucked away in a country lane and has a garden with views of the downs to the east. Lots of outdoor seating for the enjoyment of a sunny day, and sensibly placed tables to retain garden character. Plenty... More

It was my partner's birthday so we decided to go to the Cricketers because of it's beautiful setting and the fact that we have enjoyed it when we have been here before. We were not disappointed! We arrived pretty hungry, the starter came promptly. We had Smoked Salmon, which was delicious as was the fresh granary bread and salad that... More

On holiday and saw the good reviews so decided to eat here on our last night. We had 2 crab salads with chips and the caramelised onion tart salad. Food was fresh and well prepared and presented. It also tasted great! Good friendly service and food arrived in a decent time! The pub was fairly quiet a few more people... More

Have visited the Cricketers on and off for the last fifteen years at least. It's close to the downs and makes a good spot for a walk on the downs or to visit the local church. Its a Harveys pub and the beer is always excellent and they also sell "guest" beers. On a sunny summers day or evening it... More

We have just arrived home after having a lovely long lunch sitting in the garden of this very English pub. One of our party of six has to follow a gluten free diet and had a choice of seven dishes. Wow! The food was wholesome and served piping hot. Coffee was good too. Will definitely go back again.

Charming pub with an attractive garden, we'd only intended to stop for a drink while on a walk but the presence of duck with apricot sauce on the specials board for £14 swayed daveysdad into having an early lunch. The duck beast was large though not with crispy skin and came with sauté potatoes and broccoli while for the same... More

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
