The Pub The Cricketers is a country pub and dining rooms with a large beer garden and outdoor patio dining in the summer. The pub is a beautifully refurbished and extended early 19th century public house. Once known to the locals as “The Old Orchard House”, we really are a hidden gem on Cricketers Lane in Warfield, just a short drive from Ascot Racecourse, Legoland and Bracknell. We are family friendly and also happy to welcome dogs into our bar and garden areas as we always have a jar of dog treats in the porch. Whether you want to warm yourself in the sun outside in the summer with a glass of Pimms or enjoy a perfect pint of cask conditioned real ale in front of a real log fire in the winter, the Cricketers is the perfect place for a drink. If you are looking for a great venue for a family get together, a working lunch, special occasion or a light snack we’d love you to join us.

    Went for a Sunday roast, the all of the beef had huge marbled fat all the way through it so was inedible, the veg was flavourless and watery except the carrots but the Yorkshire pudding was lovely! Disappointed with the food and with the service

    We’ve come to expect average food and service at The Cricketers. So I’ll comment on a few things which were not ok, kid menu Crudités and guacamole, not only made with blackened Avis or had been pre-made and left for a few days. Was laced with chilli (in a kids menu you’d think you’d mention this) chowing only to mention the chilli to the server she made a joke with our 4 year old, saying ahh what’s wrong with a bit of chilli ? He’d not yet tasted it, I did and it was laced with dried chilli flakes which was unpleasantly hot ! Roasts were fine, much smaller portion of veg than what we’ve had before. Menu was weird with some Asian dishes, roasts and sides and starters that didn’t really go together. New management (the only reason we’ve gone back to try again) don’t yet have a handle on the service and we sat on seats that were torn with cushion foam sticking out. Needs attention and focus !

    Menus was awful, half the food was not available, description of food on menus was ridiculous, it should be hearty pub grub not some type of fancy food, the restaurant was empty on a Saturday night one week before Christmas! They are catering for the wrong type of people, I shall never go again unless the menu drastically changes. Staff very attentive but the food was way overpriced.

    I’ve put one star for everything as we didn’t even get to eat when we arrived for our anniversary dinner was told there had been no food delivery and there were only two things on the menu to choose from, neither of which was something we liked. We should have been informed either by phone or email before our meal this was the situation , in which case we would have not driven out there. Very disappointing and a ruined anniversary meal as it was too late to arrange a different booking at another restaurant.

    The service was good predominantly, except 1 waitress. The menu was small, with a lot of things unavailable. Had to complain about the Mac and Cheese as was stodgy and tasteless. The pate was not great, just about passable. The place needs a clean and a lock of paint, the toilets were not clean at all. I appreciate the new manager (who was very personable) has only been there 2 weeks. But a deep clean would have been top of the list before starting. This used to be an amazing pub/restaurant with a great reputation, I feel standards have slipped and I hope they regain their status.

    Menu is reduced and basic and many dishes not available. Only one dish on the Specials menu (vegan burger). Food was edible but not the ‘gastro pub’ standard that we have previously experienced here. It was a special birthday meal and we left disappointed. The desserts were all very similar, nothing fruity and everything based on a similar palette. We have been regular customers but the place has gone downhill, we won’t be returning.

    We went for Sunday lunch, when we arrived we were not asked if we had a reservation (we did), just told to find a table for two. We ordered two roasts, one wasn’t very hot although the food was good and a nice portion. We had a side of cauliflower cheese which really wasn’t worth it, hardly any cheese and a bit dry. Once we had said we did not want dessert we did not see the staff again, it took us quite a while to get the bill but the interactions we had with the staff were polite.

    Took my elderly aunty for lunch as she had a good experience there two weeks prior. She wanted calamari and white bait which she had previously but these were not available, so we opted for Sunday lunch. I had belly pork and she had roast beef. Got to say that portion size for the pork is small and although there was enough beef on the plate, the vegetables were small portions too, only carrots and potatoes - £17 and £19 is a bit stiff. I would urge you to do some due diligence against some of your competitors particularly The Yorkshire Rose, The Shepherds House. Having said that, the new management for this pub is good, starting with the charming French Manager and later our server Linda who was very obliging. Don't mind forking out the 12.5% service charge that goes to the staff. Overall, apart from the portion size and limited menus on Sunday, it's a good experience.

    The Cricketers WarfieldResponded on November 24, 2022Hi Sallyc, I really appreciate your honest feedback, and it will definitely be taken on board. I'm sorry for the experience you've had, and I hope you'll give us another try as this is not our usual standard. Our manager would really like to speak with you more regarding this matter. Please get in touch with us at info@cricketerswarfield.co.uk and ask for the manager. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Unfortunatly the restaurant was very busy, it took 1 hour after we arrived for starters and then another hour for our mains to turn up after several requests. The waiter was really good and kept updating us on the order but it was unfortunate that it took so long. We had 4 children who enjoyed their small starter however was starving after waiting for so long which obviously made the experience harder. There were table's with the same amount of people who arrived after us but was being served before us it was very frustrating. I have had great experiences previously with dining here so it was shame. I think when you have a large event it is more recommended to ensure you have the accurate amount of staffing levels as the poor staff were so busy and doing so much.

    A lovely location to have a meal. Shame about the menu as a small choice. Most expensive meal of Rib-eye steak was not available as they had run out the previous weekend, and bearing in mind that we visited on the Wednesday it felt strange that a steak of some sort was still not available. Apart from this the meal we chose was very good and well worth the visit. Service was good
