Disappointed customer for a takeaway
Nov 2020
Takeaway not Enjoyable
Ordered a Sunday roast takeaway. This wasn’t ready when I turned up at 5. Only to find that they hadn’t received the order through their system. Had to wait while they put it together. When I got home the food was more cold than hot and didn’t look very appertaining. Paid a lot of money for something that wasn’t up to standard. Will not be ordering a take away again.
From a very disappointed customer.

An enjoyable family meal, food was nice but quite expensive. Service was friendly however our waitress forgot things a few times which was disappointing. Restaurant got very busy over the course of the night so clearly popular. Decor is fab.

Welcome addition to Pirbright
Feb 2020 • Solo
Not sure how this place is going to do but a good addition to this lovely village and will give the White Hart a good run for its money. As a kid I used to come here to buy the eggs as this was the main revenue for the pub. Run by a miserable guy then - hope it’s improved in this respect!!

I’m not sure where this pub is trying to pitch itself ? Came across as a pub eatery chain establishment, certainly not a gastro pub.
Visited on a Fri lunch time during half term week.
The car park was full, as was the pub.
Firstly, I found the interior decor too busy, cluttered, it was noisy, and tables are very tightly packed, with a narrow bar, space is generally tight throughout, it just didn’t flow.
Unfortunately we were sat near the food serving area, where the waiters/waitresses were almost tripping over themselves in this cramped space.
On the whole, the food was tasty, I had crab linguine and my friend had the very good Fulk Brothers sausage and mash, our waitress was attentive, but sadly forgot to tell us about the specials.
I ordered a glass of Stellenbosch Chardonnay, which was nice but £8.00 for 175ml or £11.40 !! For 250ml is, (the wine menu omits to tell you the ml size of the glass) so it was somewhat overpriced !
Also take note that a 12.5% service charge is added to the bill, seems to be more and more common these days ?

To be recommended ......... re-opened recently
Jan 2020
This was the first time we tried the Cricketers in Pirbright after the total renovation. We certainly weren't disappointed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Good menu, attentive staff, good food and great choice of drinks.

We will go again

Disappointed on first visit .
Jan 2020
Booked a table for six about three weeks ago and specifically asked for quieter area.On arriving at the pub we were told our table had been moved to the other end .We were seated on a table that had obviously been wedged in as an extra in a very noisy dining area .Every time any of the staff came past they had to go sideways to get through and twice I had to grab our wine so it wasn’t knocked of the table.
We all ordered starters and the three Burrata ones were delicious,cheese soufflé and prawn cocktail okay not great.Our friend who ordered the pate was very disappointed and also had to ask for toast .Two of us had fish and chips which once again were nice and another friend had the sausage and mash which was fine .Two of our friends had the vegetarian burgers which came looking lost on the plate with no garnish and a pot of chips.My husband went for the pork belly which when it came looked very dry and hard and didn’t melt in the mouth like it should .
We ordered three portions of profiteroles to share and these were lovely .Having visited the Yurt lots of times and telling our friends how amazing the restaurant would be we feel very let down .Maybe it would be better not to cram so many people in for a better experience.We on the other hand could not fault the staff .We also agree with other reviewers that you are charging west end prices bot not producing west end food .

Pub or Restaurant?
Jan 2020 • Friends
Not sure The Cricketers knows what it is really! We had hoped for log fires and Saturday papers, but instead we found out we can't even wear our wellington boots inside. Shocked to be asked to take them off and put crocs on! A VERY uncomfortable start. Another group with kids, dogs and walking boots turned away too. No actual drinking area - seems to be all about the restaurants. Then came the drinks prices - £25 for three drinks and a tiny bowl of nuts! Husband half out the door at that point but managed to convince him to try the food. Dining area really cramped - it was a challenge for the mother in law to even get into her chair. Fish & Chips was tasty but not very hot. Steak was well cooked, but the side dishes were tired and well past their best, and the crab linguini had far less crab than an M&S sandwich! Pretty much a plate of buttered pasta for £14.50. Total food bill £55 (without any more drinks or service). All in all an overpriced and very odd mixture of glitz and rustic (neither of which are done well). Won’t be rushing back.

Overpriced, poor quality food in an easy on the eye setting
Jan 2020
Have watched the recent development and refurbishment with interest and had high hopes. Finally made it a few evenings ago. Huge disappointment. Moved from original table to more crushed area; not a big deal but disappointing - get organised. £9 prawn cocktail consisted of 1 shell on prawn, about a tablespoon of shrimps (they were so small the Trades Descriptions Act should apply), three odd hard lettuce leaves and some mushed avocado together sitting on a hidden pile of shredded lettuce. Flavourless. Ham hock similarly disappointing. The Barnsley double lamb chop consisted of a 'T' of bone with two pieces of meat each about the size of a large postage stamp tucked into the two corners. Do not think you'll get that generous thing a quick google image search reveals! The accompanying mushrooms were in that tiny white ramekin usually reserved for mustard and a teaspoon. It was no more than 1 button mushroom cut into 3 pieces. The crushed sprout tops were in the same ridiculously small mustard pot and were not hot as expected but instead a cold pickle. The Dauphinoise ingredients appeared to have only recently been introduced to each other. The kidney had gone out for the day. The small choppette arrived looking lost on its own on an enormous oval platter on a bed (correction - leaf) of something green and all for £17:50. The burger (who goes to an expensive gastro-pub for a burger apart from teenagers with me?!) was, well a burger £14.50. The bangers were lovely but the mash average. Has the chef not heard of using a potato ricer to get it really creamy? An exceedingly below average bottle of wine was £32. Service abrupt bordering on surly but cost 12.5%. It reminded me of a local waiter who was about 7' tall in a restaurant in Puerto Rico once who, when he said, 'Enjoy' I wondered if it was more a command than an expression of wish! Needless to say we gave up before desserts (who sells desserts with no cream at all and no custard for sticky toffee pudding?) The refurb looks easy on the eye at first glance with lots of nooks and crannies and a private dining area (behind a glass wall?!) as well an outside area with retractable roof but not sure its that functional. Endless shiny columns of lagers but only a few ales and a very odd an expensive wine list. Bill for four without dessert nearly £200 for tiny portions of very average at best pub grub. Right next door is one of Surrey's oldest established and best butchers. Asked them a few days later about the lamb chop as I was surprised they weren't supplying leg steaks to learn that the pub only elected to buy sausages and a beef sirloin for Sunday from them. Big mistake as the rest of the meat was very under par in terms of quality. As we all know, in the service industry expectations have to be exceeded. Well The Cricketers-on-the-green has someway to go. Ingredients, chef and menu all need upgrading or the prices halved. When I've recovered from this I might try a Sunday roast (it might have been - but is unlikely to be - a one off but you never know). Yes, before you ask I did enquire if, as a new restaurant, there was a feedback/comments book but surly said 'no' although she promised to pass suggestions on.

Not impressed at all.
Jan 2020
After all the hype we are not impressed , couldnt book and prices seem excessive based on what is offered.
Very little out side seating as one would expect for a village pub and ceratinly not pet freindly.
Looks to be turning what was a nice quiet vilage pub into a car parking war zone.

We took our business to the white hart , parking was easy and pet freindly too, in summary then .
The cricketers pirbright, right pub in the wrong location and would be more at home in the west end of london really.

Can only eat food in the restaurant
Jan 2020
Called in at the new refurbed “Cricketers on the Green” today. Only to be informed that ALL food is ONLY served in the restaurant, which is a pity as they were full and busy which is great for a new pub, but not too helpful for us as unless I am mistaken NO-WHERE on their website does it mention this. (It does however mention “everywhere” that there is an optional 12.5% service charge)
A missed opportunity I fear as quite a few people after us decided to walk down to the White Hart for some food. If this is their business model going forward, does it mean in the coming summer that no food will be served outside?
