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.

    Good amount of parking on arriving but this soon became almost full by 7pm. Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Even though car park was almost full it never felt too busy which was nice. Gluten Free options were available. They even had gluten free buns. Burger was tasty and juicy. Cooked well with flavour. Staff were pleasant and polite.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback. Its really disappointing to hear you love many aspects of the pub but we have let you down on the food. Our menu is evolving and changing with the seasons so hopefully our new summer menu will wow you.

    Limited menu and they didn’t have a few options which was disappointing on a Saturday night. Dumped in the back room because there was an event on and the vegetarian options were suboptimal. Food that came was nice but for the cost, I wouldn’t go back.

    The Cricketers WarfieldResponded 6 days ago

    Thanks for the feedback, we apologise we got it so wrong for you on this occasion. We are working hard with our suppliers to ensure all of our items are on the menu all of the time but for obvious reasons we are facing challenges. We will continue to strive for improvements on this matter. We apologise this affected your evening so badly.

    We booked at table for here at 8pm on a bank holiday Sunday. We had the roast beef, the veg was ok but the beef was cold and very grisly. Also there must be a function room or something as there were really loud people and very sweary - it sounded like an actual fight at one point.

    The Cricketers WarfieldResponded on May 7, 2022

    Thank you for the review, we will look into your comments regarding the roast beef. We apologise for the poor quality and will take this to our suppliers. We are also very sorry if other guests spoilt your experience too.

    Food was perfect, we had a wait a long wait to get food from the time we sat down and ordered to the food arriving, service was attentive but a little slow. There was a pub quiz on which as the dining and the pub are on top of each other was very noisy to the point that we could not hear ourselves talking. I would certainly recommend a visit but Not on quiz night!!

    The Cricketers WarfieldResponded on May 4, 2022

    Thank you for the review and comments. It is really disappointing to hear you loved the food so much but your experience was tainted by the quiz we had on. We are really sorry to hear the quiz had such an affect on your experience. We would have happily moved you to a quieter part of the pub had we realised. We hope you give us another chance (Quizzes run on a Tuesday) look out on our Facebook and Instagram pages for dates.

    We look forward to our sunday lunches and go somewhere different every week. Here we were ignored and eventually had to ask waitress to take our order then ignored again and a 45 minute wait for our food, some of the food was cold and the rest not nice. When we refused to pay the service charge the manager was called who was rude and patronising. She did refund the food but then told us we should go to a different place in future. Would never go here again.

    The chicken meal we ordered was very greasy and oily. It was more spatchcock chicken than a flat iron chicken. £16 on the steep side, no one checked on our meal and at the end no one really seemed to care when we paid. Nice setting for a drink in the summer. But standards have dropped since we were last in from the Autumn.

    The Cricketers WarfieldResponded on April 22, 2022

    Thank you for the review and feedback. We are currently in the process of changing our menus and the flat iron chicken is one of the dishes we have made many improvements to. We hope you give us another chance as we are very confident you will be impressed by the changes.

    Friendly waitress but working alone meant long waits. Food quality not great, and not as described. Low quality, gristly roast beef, serious lack of vegetables. Awful cauliflower cheese. Condiments in the smallest pots I've ever seen. Desserts were disappointing with melting, watery ice cream, cold custard from a carton (not a "vanilla bean" in sight) and dried out tiny steamed pud. Expensive all in all. Won't be rushing back.

    The Cricketers WarfieldResponded on April 6, 2022

    Thank you for the review and feedback. We are very sorry to hear how disappointed you were with the Sunday roast. Lots of feedback and points that we can take to the kitchen and improve upon so thank you for that. We hope you give us another chance as we will ensure we iron out these issues.

    Seated in the crowded bar,between two tables with dogs.dogs jumping on our table.Although the restaurant was empty was not asked if we wanted to be seated there.We were a party of four (treat for Mothers Day) which was a disaster. Good was bad,chicken hard and tasteless,salad was dried up must have been there for days,how a waiter could put it on a plate for a customer is beyond me(photos to prove. Very disappointing evening.Should get total refund.

    The chicken and ham pie I had for main was one of the best pies I have ever had. Light crispy pastry and well filled. It was a bit on the large side but so yummy I scoffed the lot. It came with clotted cream mash. Not sure the cream really added much but it was very smooth and tasty. My husband had the venison ragu with pappardelle pasta which again, was very tasty.

    Service: not shown to table. Cutlery brought after food served. Food: Overcooked sea bass, unseasoned potatoes, spinach instead of samphire, cold plates. £3.50 side of broccoli. Boiled with sliced lemon chucked on top. Value: £21.00 for a main that was mediocre at best. Lovely atmosphere. Lots of potential. Chairs well worn and lots cobwebs. Average pub at restaurant prices.

    Was a bit nervous having read the reviews, but was pleasantly surprised overall. Food was ok (my wife’s food was warm not hot, my daughter’s chicken was a little over but fine). Nothing to get all excited about either way, but plenty good enough for a Sunday lunch (the triple roast was excellent, the apple crumble and sticky toffee pudding also very good). However, a lot of reviews question the level of service and they are clearly listening. We got Linda and she was excellent. Didn’t have to wait long, joked with the kids, efficient service and all done with a laugh and a smile. Makes a huge difference. It’s not going to win a Michelin star, but it’s a very pleasant meal with the family.
