This is a typical modern big brand (GreenKing) Pub (sorry Flame Grill). It is nicely decorated and well laid out. It is quite cavernous and lots of room outside. However, although some staff were delightful, others seemed to be operating at half pace. Not slow, but not with it. The system is to order at the bar and have meals... More

I've drunk and eaten at The Cricketers for the past 25 years and have always thought of it as one of the best in the area for variety and quality of the beers and wines plus food. Over the years I have taken dozens of friends and family there for everything from a quick bite to a 10+ family gathering.... More

Last weekend I spent a very enjoyable afternoon out at The Cricketers Arms with half a dozen friends (all couples). The new grill menu is a great idea, very popular with us husbands and a few wives. Large meaty burgers that for just £1 that can be doubled or add many extra toppings that can be added (only necessary for... More

Firstly, can I start by saying we love the Cricketers. We have been coming here for years and have always considered it the best family pub in Eastleigh by miles. It's not even that close to where we live but we go there because it has always been consistently great value with a good menu, nice atmosphere and a great... More

An excellent example of a large, well managed food led pub. Food looks good quality and the prices are reasonable enough, although I mainly come here for the well kept beers and just nick sandwiches from random buffets before blaming it on other tables!

I was here in attendance of a family gathering for which we had organised a sandwich buffet. We were very well looked after, greeted upon arrival, served swiftly and all the staff and management were courteous and sympathetic to the sensitive nature of our outing (wake) The only downside which was not the fault of the pub, was the leaving...

Went with my partner and teenage kids to meet up with family we hadn't seen for a while. Service was very good, served by a lovely young woman called Jo (who I think was a member of management). Food came quickly despite it being busy. Food was well cooked and steak was well seasoned, which I find a lot of... More

We stopped off here on the way home from Southampton and all had a good experience, ordered food from the lunch/sandwich menu and were all very pleased. Nice atmosphere, lovely staff and reasonably priced- will definitely be going back.

We came to the cricketers with some friends who had just got engaged. I had mentioned this when booking the table and asked them to ensure there was a bottle of champagne chilled for us. The pub was quite busy when we arrived but we were seated quickly and the champagne arrived soon after. We took quite a while deciding... More

Went to Cricketers Arms earlier in the year to meet up with friends on way back from Isle of Wight. Had a really nice relaxing meal on a very busy Sunday. Cannot understand why some are giving it only 1* when clearly it's a well run, friendly pub that seems to attract a pretty good set of locals and visitors.
