“Booking not registered”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Visited The Cricketers yesterday evening (26th June). Booked by telephone last week. When we arrived at 7.30 for our 7.45 booking we were loudly informed, without apology, by the barman that there was no booking for us. It seemed unclear, so we had to ask, whether they were able to give us a table. A little while later, again in a loud but offhand manner we were told the booking had been made for the following evening but no apology for the mistake. A discrepancy with the beer followed - Doom Bar requested but another beer served. We have been going to The Cricketers for the past 3 years or so since it was refurbished and at that time the staff used to be fast, polite and extremely efficient but things have deteriorated. Time to give The Kings Arms a try I think.

“Still waiting for my horseradish sauce”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

To be fair we went on fathers day, the place was rammed which is always a good sign. We thoroughly enjoyed the roast beef and as the staff were rushed off their feet I wasn't about to whinge about my horseradish request!! Well recommended

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Visited The Cricketers Friday 7th June - very busy , we had not booked , but not a problem to the happy friendly staff . we sat outside as early eve. Had a bit of a wait for our fish n chips but Penny the manageress kept us informed and boy was it worth the wait !
It was buzzing inside when we came in after our meal and loved the atmosphere.
Well done Cricketers for creating such a great venue.

“Looong wait, but worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I ate here an saturday 1/6/13. We came here because of the fantastic reviews we had read on trip advisor, and well the food did not disappoint!!
I ordered the sausages and mash and my partner ordered the burger and chips. Both very reasonably priced.
It was very busy that day, and we were sat on one of the tables in the back (possibly table 404). we ordered our food and waited, then waited a bit more...
35mins later and there it was. We were starving when we had got to the pub, so by the time the food arrived we were ravenous!!

We were expecting normal pub grub style food, but when it came it far exceeded our expectations.
The food was more like restaurant quality, with the sausages being very good quality herb sausages, and the gravy being more like a jus that you'd expect in a posh restaurant. The burgers was similarly good quality and came with french fries style chips. We also ordered the slaw which was so much more than just coleslaw.
All in all, for £30 including 2 pints of cider we were very impressed!!

Would definitely reccomend to anyone, and would go back soon!!
