The Cricketers Warfield
Having been here and had a fabulous meal last year, I was sad to see that albeit there seemed a fair few front of house we were not cared for. 25 mins to take our order, having to ask for menus and to order initial drinks. And bringing out our mains whilst starter played were on the table and not taking them! So we cleared them and they sat on the bench next to us all night. Saving grace was good was as wonderful as last time!
This is a great place to eat and drink. Really welcoming team and respectful of the safety measures required to make a visit as comfortable as possible.
Lovely Sunday lunch thank you
The pub is set in nice countryside with cows grazing in the adjacent field. Tables are nicely set apart outdoors and it’s quite a nice setting. We ordered a couple of starters, then waited and waited a long time for our mains. One of the servers did notice we were waiting and came over several times to tell us the mains were on the way Ana explained several other tables ordered only mains. I ordered fish and chips. The chips were good but really quite disappointing with my fish which initially looked nice was a very thin fillet of fish and not of any substance when you cut into it. The roast pork was ok but unfortunately the crackling was covered with gravy which rendered it no longer crispy, feedback from the roast beef was it was so-so. Everyone agreed the roast potatoes were the best part and the Yorkshire pudding and meat were so-so. Unfortunately the food just didn’t quite hit the spot.
Excellent place and food is amazing . Staff go above and beyond and always go the extra mile .
Well organised outdoor eating and drinking
Mostly lovely food, only disappointment was the sirloin steak from the specials menu, which was not cooked as requested and the chimichurri sauce was tasteless.
Cheerful helpful staff.
Thanks for the review. Sorry about the steak, we will look into your comments
Very overpriced - £18 for two small pieces of roast beef, three potatoes, half a carrot baton and a tablespoon of cabbage! Service was lovey and it’s nice to be back eating out but this level of poor value is too much.
Thank you for the review. We will take your comments around portion size on board. Great to hear the service was on point but we have work to do to perfect every aspect.
Not enough vegetables , a little too much protein . Our waitress was excellent
Thanks for the feedback. Just shout next time as we would be happy to bring out more. Sorry we didn't rectify this for you on the day.
Waited ages for food and when it came, it was awful and very overpriced. Bad service.
Thanks for the feedback. Sorry for the delays. We are working on reducing our wait times.
Great food, beer and ambience. Lovely friendly service👍😁
Thanks for the four stars, next time we aim to make it five.
great drinks and food. Thanks to all at the cricketers
Thank you for the review. Next time we hope for a 5 star experience.
Both myself and my friend had Fish and Chips and a pint each. Excellent service, and the food was awesom.
Just wish we had few more chips!
Thanks for the feedback and an easy fix. Just shout next time as we would be more than happy to bring more out to you if you felt there wasn't enough. Apologies we under portioned in the first place.
Took ages to get waitress for table service, plus you need to go indoors to the bar snd open a tab before they take any food orders. Defeats Covid “table service” guidelines!
Waited nearly an hour for food! After 45 mins with nothing we asked “oh just 5 mins longer”
10 mins later still no food, they said “oh another 5 mins”
We cancelled food order...
Have been here before but not coming again!
Thanks for the feedback. Apologies we got it so wrong on this occasion. In terms of the Covid guidelines. It's fine for you to enter the building in a situation likes ours where card machines are fixed or there isn't any WIFI outside (we have both of these issues.) Allowances are made for a payment process in this situation. I am confident you will come across this again. We are working hard to improve on service times during these busy periods we are very sorry you had to wait on this occasion.
We booked a table for 12pm and stayed until around 3.30pm without any pressure to leave (unlike other restaurants we have recently been to). Was a great atmosphere, lovely sunny garden and fabulous food. Thank you for making a Friday afternoon off work very enjoyable!
Thanks for the great review. We are really pleased to see you love what we do.
We didn’t get served for 2.5 hours. We were going to order food and another drink but we only got served one drink in the whole time we were there.
Thank you for the feedback. We are really sorry we got it so wrong on this occasion. We aim to improve on service times during these very busy periods.
Service was slow and drinks took over 45 minutes to arrive.
Thanks for the feedback. Sorry for the delay. We are working hard to reduce our wait times at busy periods.
Overall was a bit disappointed mainly due to the lack of attention/service given to us. I requested a table by a heater but when we arrived there didn’t appear to be any apart from 1 table which was already being used. Table service was really slow, we had to get the waiters attention anytime we wanted something. Usually I’m more understanding as I work in hospitality myself but it really wasn’t that busy. For the price we paid it just would of made a huge difference having more attentive service. Shame as the food was quite nice and the garden is lovely but I don’t think I’d return.
Thanks for the feedback. Sorry we got it wrong for you on this occasion.
Beautiful beer garden but the food was very average - chewy steak sandwhich and stodgy pizza. Second time I’ve eaten there and second time I’ve been disappointed. I’ll just be keeping it as a drinking pub from now on!
Thanks for the feedback. We will share your comments with the kitchen team and review.
Run out of most food and larger , should of be informed before booking
Could only have sides .. not the normal standard from such a great pub
Not sure what to expect but well organised with plenty of space. Godd service and excellent food in the sun.
Thanks for the great review. Hope we see you back soon
this was very good not problems, good Sunday lunch menu at a good price,, weather was lovely
Thanks for the great review. Hope we see you back soon
Great food, spacious sunny garden areas. Well organised in the current climate. Ideal.
Thanks for the great review. Hope we see you back soon
Service of the food was very slow, waited nearly 45mins between starter and mains. No compensation. No apologies. Food was tasty however the overall service put what should have been an enjoyable first meal out of lockdown and disappointing experience.
Thanks for the review. Sorry for the poor service. We will aim to improve on our wait times during busy service times.
Great place just not geared up for out door dining .. only one patio heater so take a blanket. Our main came out before our starter!! But it was still nice food and friendly staff.
Thanks for the review. Apologies we could not provide more substantial heating.
great if you want to sit outside and freeze, food was ok but got cold very quickly and was very expensive for what you got, could have done with some more lights and heaters or if not heaters some throws
Thanks for the review. Sorry about the cold and lack of heaters. There is currently a national shortage on patio gas due to demand but we are trying our best to get more.
Terrible food I was poorly for 2 days after. Will not return!
Thanks for the feedback. We are very sorry we got it so wrong for you on this occasion.
No working heaters and very cold outside with 2 new born babies.
Thanks you for the review. Sorry about the heating. There is a national issue with the supply of gas due to the sudden demand but we are trying to resolve.
The food was lovely, but the table was in complete darkness so we couldn't see anything we were eating, and the wait was almost an hour. Our food arrived before our drinks (we only had 1 drink in our 2 hour stay). Disappointing as we have had many great meals here. There were too many people in the first week of re-opening ordering trays and trays of beers and this impacted everyone who had ventured out for a nice dinner.
I realise it’s the first Friday after 12 April but our drinks took nearly an hour to arrive and the patio heaters didn’t work. We normally love this pub so hopefully just a hiccup and they can get more staff and some gas for the heaters
The staff were quite rude and when asking them about the menu’s and rushed us to make decisions.
The queue for the till to pay and order food was so long and if you had a problem with your food or they didn’t provide you with cutlery (as they didn’t with us) we had to stand and wait and by the time we did get our cutlery the food was cold
Had a fanatic time here. Food was AMAZING. Yes they were super busy but the service was perfect, a little slow on drinks orders, however, completely justified for the first Friday after pubs had re-opened! 5**
Thanks for the great review. We are so pleased you had such a fantastic time. Hope to see you back soon.
Given that it was the first week after reopening, staff could be forgiven for being a bit rusty and trying to serve outside only.
Service was a little disorganised and we didn’t really get any service to the table, had to track down a staff member each time we wanted something.
Food was nice quality but not particularly hot- again could be forgiven somewhat in the circumstances, although desert (crumble) was particularly luke warm even when bought from kitchen direct.
Felt very pricey (£70 for 2 people, main, dessert and 1 drink).
Will come and try again, hopefully a better all round next time.
First date night out after lock down and I was really looking forward to this, not been here before and it looked lovely on the website. But I'm really sorry to say it was a total let down. The drinks are hideously expensive, paid £27 for a bottle of wine that costs £14 in my local pub, exactly same wine. We ordered one beer and a bottle of wine - it took over half an hour for the wine to turn up minus the beer and when we highlighted to the waiter the beer was missing, it took another half hour for the beer to arrive. None of the outside heaters were working so it was quite chilly and no-one came to take our food order and in the end we decided not to bother as the food we saw coming out didn't look all that and we didn't fancy sitting in the cold eating cold food. I don't think the food prices reflect the standard of food we saw coming out at all. After an hour and a half we called it a night and left but on settling the tab, we had been charged twice for the beer so had to wait for a refund on the one that never arrived. The actual pub itself is very average and I cannot work out why it is so expensive given it is no different from my local pub, I hate complaining but I really did not enjoy our time there and would definitely not be going back. Not worth the money and the service is terrible. Sorry :(
Great pub , great staff , great beer , great wine and food. Stop procrastinating and book yourself a table.
Lovely good food and good service
Nice day weather fantastic
Lovely food but service lacking. Was supposed to be table service but took ages for our order to be taken and never offered dessert, more drinks or plates cleared.
Smashing pub, good beet and food.
Service obviously a tad different, but all the staff were top drawer
First day back was quite hard to get order taken, had to ask three times. Some of the food also came out cold.
Our favourite pub by far !
Food is always great with a good selection on the menu.
Never lets us down !!!!
Great to be back out at the pub. We had a lovely time and were well looked after as always.
