I visited The Cricket Inn for a late lunch with my husband after a long drive down from London. We were camping at a campsite just up the hill so wanted a really good meal before attempting a BBQ later that evening. We found a table outside with our dog and had: - cider - cold, delicious and refreshing -... More

We had a last minute table, the staff are all very friendly and the establishment is spotless, well kept. The food is very fresh and a great menu. My boyfriend had the fish tagliatelle which was lovely. I had the seafood pancake which was nice but over priced, very small prawns and felt disappointed. All the food coming out of... More

Thank you for your review, a little perplexed everything seemed perfect apart from the small Atlantic prawns, which is how the seafood pancake has always been served but we only got 3 stars if we promise some bigger prawns next time will we get 5 stars ???? thanks again, ring ahead and I will see what I can do with...

Love this pub and the location. Always been good for seafood and particularly crabs and lobster. Although this time we had the seafood pancake (as recommended by a local couple ( ordinarily I wouldn't have chosen this)) and it was absolutely fabulous. My only complaint is that the place is a little pricey which meant we could only eat here... More

We have been visiting the cricket inn for the last 6 years and look forward to going back each time. However unfortunately on this occasion we were disappointed to find that there has been a very noticeable increase in price, the portions however were smaller and the service was poor. The food as always was excellent though. It seems that... More

We had a fantastic meal. Good service. Pleasant surroundings and lovely staff. The food was excellent. My children loved the fish and burgers and they are not easy to please. Scallops and plaice were excellent along with the lobster and crab soup. Also very nice desserts. Cannot fault anything!! Thank you

This place is a great find. We stayed for one night and thought everything, from the friendly staff at check in, the delicious and great room to the hearty breakfast was outstanding. Will definitely make a return visit! The fish and seafood dishes are a real treat, and portion sizes very generous.

The Cricket Inn is terrific. Smart-casual in style; offering beautifully cooked and presented food, particularly seafood; a lovely staff, who provide first class service with a smile, in a room which looks directly out to sea. After every visit, my wife, who is a professional cook and food writer, and I always say that we don't have a more agreeable... More

Visited whilst on holiday, nice premises and nice location. Service started well and when food arrived it look good as it was. My main course came with a side dish that did not arrive with the other food, we pointed this out to a waiter who said it would be right out but again it never arrived. After this service... More

The food is very good however the service was average. My husband's side dish which accompanied his meal never arrived despite us querying where it was, it was hard work we had to ask for dessert menus, we were ignored when we wanted to pay which was frustrating when other tables were receiving better service. Astonished at the charge for... More

Thank you for your review, I would imagine that the review by Chris F is your partner getting two reviews that are nearly identical is unusual, so the same applies be MORE SPECIFIC and the charge for WATER is discretionary and every penny we charge goes to the charity WATER AID so far we have raised over £12000 for this...
