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.

    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.

    The Cricketers is a nice pub/restaurant. Went yesterday for lunch. Lunch menu was a bit on the thin side. Mains choice is okay, but I don't really want a big meal at lunch time. Food was nice, but nothing really special. Service was excellent.

    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 24 November 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

    The Cricketers WarfieldResponded on 3 November 2022Thanks for your four star review. Our apologises that we were out of stock on the rib eye steak. Kind Regards

    Considering there were only 3 sets of guests it still took 1hr30 to get served with main meal! Drinks order was totally forgotten and sadly we had to chase food several times. Then some elements were over cooked?? Appreciate may of been short of staff but service level and quality of food was not acceptable for a restaurant that has a good reputation in the past locally.

    Staff good and food tasty but had Caesar salad and it came with grated cheese and not Parmesan. Friend enjoyed sauasages and mash. Glasses need a good clean as very water marked as did cutlery. Bar was sticky. So in review, food and staff were good but felt other areas needed improving

    The Cricketers WarfieldResponded on 26 September 2022Thank you for taking the time to review. Your feedback will enable us to continue to improve our services. The Caesar salad is a vegan dish and comes with a grated vegan cheese on top. Our apologies as we seem to have missed the mark on polishing cutlery and glasses on this occasion.

Tables cleared of glasses around us after we had finished but we were ignore - no dirty plates cleared no offer of dessert or query as to whether we needed more drinks At 21.45 with our taxi due at 22.00 my husband went to the bar to ask for the bill to find all the staff there having a drink ☹️ Excuse - new assistant manager (hospital pass for him / her) Price of meal discounted - not the point Food was lovely, service atrocious- won’t be going back
