Popped in here a couple of sunday evenings ago, all the bar staff were in a huddle and I had to wait to be served even though I was the only person at the bar. The carvery was still being served, though there was more food on the floor than anywhere else and I sat and watched members of staff walk past many times sometimes treading on the food but making no attempt to clear it up. There were kids running around which is a personal hate of mine, where are the parents!!
Nice pub but going downhill.

Our 8 mile walk around the north of Woking was punctuated by lunch at the Cricketers.

Definitely echo the comments below. This is a food orientated pub which happens to sell beer. The pub is long and narrow at the front along the bar with a restaurant section at one end. On the Thursday lunchtime we were there it was reasonably busy. It is a pleasant environment.

The beer is Shepherd Neame - they had Whitstable Bay, Spitfire, Masterbrew and Kent's Best. Between the five of us we tried pretty much all of them. The problem is - telling the difference. They all have this "golden summer" appearance so beloved of some brewers these days. And the taste is pretty much the same for all of them. The beer or the pub - I don't know - but it's pretty unspectacular drinking. And 3.70 for a pint of Whitstable Bay is fairly steep.

The reviews below give the food good marks but my Pig and Cheese Burger frankly wasn't up to much. The burger was 6oz but was in a very dry bun. The amount of cheese and bacon in it was small so eating the thing was a bit of an effort ( perhaps designed to make me drink more). The chunky chips were also very dry. I can't eat coleslaw so asked for none to be served. It was replaced with - nothing. The "side salad" was a joke - one circle of onion, one small gherkin and a bit of tomato. And this unedifying pretty small meal set me back 10.95 - not good value.

Having said that, one of my fellow walkers had a pie which he said was very good.

The young lady who served us was friendly and efficient.

The Cricketers is owned by a PubCo, Barons Pubs. This probably explains the high prices, profit maximisation being the order of the day. I doubt though that the Cricketers will be getting much of their profit from me in the future.

Seems to be mostly focused on the restaurant side of the business than just being a pub, but having said that the beer seems to be in excellent condition - much better than the Good Beer Guide listed Crown just down the road. Nice beer gardens for sunny days too.

Popped in early evening last Saturday with some chums and the place was mainly laid out as a restaurant with groups at tables in paper hats etc. eating their dinners, which was a bit of a shock to the system. Not therefore really that pub atmosphere that I like. Having said that, the Shepherd Neame Kent's Best was in excellent condition and we spent a pleasant hour at the bar. Probably more foody than pub these days but that seems to be the way we're headed...

Totally loved this pub. Great carvery and nice outdoor area for kids to play. Really efficient staff too and very polite. Will go back for sure. Like to try pubs that are connected to see if standards go across the board, not sure if this is a one off but will def try any sister pubs if there are any.
