Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Last time we went we had a young dog who was so noisy, we had to escape to the garden for lunch. Same dish this time, mushrooms and Stilton with pepper corn sauce. Excellent as a light lunch. This is a traditional lunch with charming...staff, a broad menu and excellent food. I was very envious I didn’t get to have any of the onion scraps with the local sausages ! Bought some local honey too, looking forward to trying that.More

Stayed the night whilst attending a near by wedding. We had the downstairs room and it was lovely. Had everything we needed, tastefully furnished and cosy. Garden of the pub was lovely for a drink in the afternoon and breakfast was also good. All staff...we encounter were really friendly and helpful.More

We hadn't booked and the staff said we were welcome to say IF we could find a table. We went out to the back garden and there were a family leaving so we settled down, brought drinks and watched as the one person who was...bringing out food, walked past us several times - and the table was still full of the previous peoples' meals & drinks. We piled them up & made the person aware, but he seemed very rushed off his feet. We managed to get a menu after returning to the bar and were told it was going to be over an hour wait for food as they were too busy and as we hadn't booked - they weren't' expecting others to want to eat. Despite the seemingly negative attitude of the lady behind the bar - we ordered some food & enjoyed spending time with friends in the garden until our food arrived - which was very welcome after the wait! When our food was brought over, that was when the table was cleared - we did feel quite sorry for the young person as he seemed overwhelmed with it being just him, but he just kept going so should be given kudos for that. We will return but will book a garden table next time in advance. The garden is dog friendly, which was fantastic as brought 2 Newfoundlands who enjoyed the shade, the bowls of water left out for visiting dogs, and the attention from other adults & children.More

Apologies but I cannot believe the comments about the food here. I ate here for dinner and then lunch and the food was of a very basic quality. I had two different salads and the quality of ingredients and care take on creation was less...than I was expecting for the price I paid. The location is lovely and the staff were very friendly but this food is arguably £3/4 overpriced at least for what you get.More

Over the past year visiting with a friend who came over from Australia it was a half way meeting point. Lovely staff, lovely food and well looked after. The Garden is beautiful and the weather really helped and we sat on the decking in shade...because of her two dogs. Would we go back - yes.More

We stayed for one night in this lovely pub. Clean and comfortable with lovely touches such as fresh milk in fridge and fruit. Breakfast in the beautiful garden was delicious. highly recommend this little jewel in the Hampshire countryside. landlady was helpful and accommodating when...I foolishly ran out of petrol. Will definitely stay again. plus I had the best dessert I have had for a long time. waffle with salted caramel ice cream , Chantilly cream strawberries, toffee sauce and popcorn. I recreated it a few days later at a family party. it went down a storm. thank you to the chef.More

We found this little gem whilst staying near Petworth and visited several time during our stay. There is a good selection on the menu and the meals we selected were delicious and mu husband was impressed with the burgers and the chips are brilliant. We...also tried the ploughmans which were excellent. The service was great and staff very friendly. We loved the garden which was really well spaced out and very peaceful. We really look forward to coming back on our next visit.More

Took almost an hour to get food, no updates, apologies or explanations, charged for drinks we never had, again corrected with no apology, food mediocre at best (super watery sauce with mussels; tasteless seafood gratin). Staff were inattentive and we had to reach out to...them almost every time, usually found them in the bar which was near empty, pub/restaurant was overall at perhaps 30% capacity, so being busy no excuse. Hopefully we just visited on a very slack day… Great garden and pub in itself, other customers main courses looked decent and arrived quicker.More

It's been a while since we visited the Cricketers, but the food was absolutely great and the staff very friendly. We both chose the local griddled asparagus on a bed of salad leaves with poached egg and hollandaise. It was beautifully cooked and presented and...our side order of cheesy garlic bread was delicious. Every one of our group complimented the food on how good it was.More
