About the restaurant
Set on the edge of the picturesque Wessex Downs in the North Hampshire countryside, Malverleys is a small farm, restaurant, bakery and shop. The daily changing menu reflects our surroundings and the seasons, with all our ingredients coming straight from the farm or trusted producers. We offer a versatile space for the local community to enjoy coffee, wholesome food and carefully sourced, sustainable produce.

With sustainability and conservation at our core, Malverleys provides an outlet immersed in the countryside where friends and family can meet, or those seeking time to themselves can enjoy the comfortable, tranquil atmosphere. Visitors have the opportunity to purchase sustainably sourced products, attend horticultural workshops, and dine in the restaurant where ingredients are seasonal and often grown on-site in the market garden.

About the restaurant
Small plates, steaks, Home made burgers & hand crafted stone baked Pizzas are just some of the things on offer prepared in-house by our Head Chef Jordan and his team using only locally sourced, fresh ingredients.
All our Wines and a chunk of our spirit range is brought to us by our friends at Portal, Dingwall & Norris based in Emsworth stocking & supplying only the best wines and spirits.
We're mad keen on Cocktails too! Our list isn't huge but it's carefully selected featuring Classic and Contemporary cocktails showcasing what we do. We're so passionate about it that we only use fresh fruits and we make all our own syrups, settling for nothing but perfection. Fresh passion fruits in our Passion fruit Martini's and fresh figs and dates in our Espresso Martini. We spend a lot of time squeezing lemons and limes too and dehydrating our own fruit !

I came across the restaurant by chance, I booked the day before I was going. I had a thoroughly pleasant evening the food and wine were excellent, staff very efficient and friendly. I spoke to the chef by chance as I was leaving and thanked him for my meal he said they source local produce and are looking at ways to promote themselves more. I will definitely book again when in the area.

The Cricketers Inn is everything you would expect from a traditional country pub: cosy interiors, open fire, well-kept ales, local gins, a good selection of wine and a warm welcome from the team. You can choose to dine in the restaurant, the dog-friendly bar area, or outside in our large beer garden.

We are all about creating food that is full of flavour without the fuss. Hearty pub classics and daily specials that can be enjoyed in a relaxed environment with the whole family. We champion local producers and are
committed to sourcing quality, seasonal produce whenever possible.

We love coming here the food and service is always amazing, hard to go anywhere else as the standard is so high. I haven’t given 5 stars for ambience as the chairs have seen better days, had to swap mine on arrival as it was so squeaky every time I moved.

We ate at 2.45 and enjoyed our meal but it wasn’t up to the normal excellent bakers standard. The vegetables were numerous but in very small portions and some were over cooked/tired. My beef was very rare and included large portions of fat. My wife’s pork was allegedly very tasty. The waitress was obviously inexperienced but service was ok.

Young staff a bit slow and not very talkative, but landlady was nice and chatty. Great food at good prices. Fabulous views across the harbour, have booked a table for this weekend. Would recommend.
