Description: Lorenzo & Dianne welcome you to the Cricketers Inn. Set in the heart of the beautiful Meon Valley, this serene setting, with a lovely spacious garden, is sure to provide the perfect spot for an al fresco lunch or cosy evening meal beside the log fire. Our chef's freshly prepared menu is served daily for both lunch and dinner, along with our innovative selection of wines, ales and lagers. Whether it's a quick bite or a meal with friends and family, we aim to cater for all occasions. Our in house 'Daily Specials' board always has a vast array of fresh fish and meat dishes, these include a complimenting dessert board.

“Excellent location for an evening out”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

A group of four of us visited the cricketers inn on a Saturday night. The pub was completely full and we hadn't booked. The smiley, bubbly staff were extremely accommodating and arranged a table for us. We sat down and ordered our food. I ordered the 'roast duck breast with lyonnaise potatoes and a honey lime and ginger glaze' it was marvellous. Considering the place was so full, of happy customers, the staff were very attentive and all of our needs were met. My husband asked to order off of the Xmas menu even though we hadn't previously arranged this the Barman asked the chef who said it was fine. We had a fantastic evening and would recommend the cricketers inn to anyone I speak to.

“Terrible customer service”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

Rang to ask about adjustments for dietary purposes . Had the rudest person on the phone who said it wasn't possible to have prawn salad with sauce on side ( this instead of prawn cocktail ) how difficult is this ??? Other pubs have done this sort of thing with no notice so gives impression that this a 'ping' place all prepared elsewhere. Than I couldn't order a non Xmas dish ( steak with salad ) whilst the rest of table had Xmas menu . Never stepping foot in this establishment

“Very impressed”
Reviewed 27 October 2012

A group of twelve visited The Cricketers Inn this week. The ambience was great, the food superb and the cost was very reasonable. We were so impressed that we have booked our pre-Christmas staff dinner there too. We had the far end of the dining area to ourselves so that our raucous laughter did not distrub others. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel very welcome. There were no complaints about any of the dishes that we consumed and, all in all, we felt it very good value for money.

“High standard pub food”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

I visited with my husband, another couple and their toddler. We were all impressed with the menu, and chose roasts & Thai curry. the food was really good, service excellent, the food was brought out quickly and they were very helpful in sorting out a seating for the toddler with us. The pudding, a millionaires cheesecake, was the best my friend had had in ages and the cheeseboard my husband chose had generous portions and variety. overall v impressed and we'll def be back.
