The nearest proper pub to Eastleigh's football ground, this Greene King pub is still a good 10 minutes walk from the ground.

An extended pub that looks like an old cottage and out building merged together, to the front is a large raised decked area with a white Pickett fence surrounding it.

Inside the pub is long with the short bar straight in front as you enter, there's seating and dining areas either side. Disappointing to see the 8 hand pumps had just 4 ales on, not much to choose from so it was a pint of GK IPA for me.

We took our drinks and sat outside as the weather was good.

Only stayed for 1 pint as getting another beer was a nightmare, 2 bar staff and a gaggle of locals all claiming they were next, this done my head in so we left and headed back to the 'spoons by the station.

Scored down on slow poor bar service

I agree with the previous contributor, so basically nothing has changed over the past few years. A Greene King managed house serving a 'ping food' menu. However, in it's defense, the beer was outstanding. It was in pristine condition. Try the Exmore Beast, it's a beauty.

The Cricketers is close to where I work so I was looking forward to having a decent boozer near the office. As usual in Britain these days, generally you are going to be disappointed if you want a decent 'pub' experience as this is being replaced by the corporate brand image of everything being the same. The Cricks actually isn't a BAD pub, there are a couple of decent ales on and they seem well looked-after - I was only there early so will need another visit to see how it copes under pressure. As usual though, too many large plastic menus and people sitting on high-stools around lacquered tall tables waiting for microwaved chain grub. Average.

This pub has been known to my family for years. It's been through some ups and downs, but is currently most definitely on an up. A well-kept, if mostly unchanging, range of beers, mostly from the Greene King stable, but also normally Ringwood Best. Friendly, hard-working landlord and staff. Food normally looks decent, if unspectacular, although I haven't eaten there for a while. A wide range of events as well, including a weekly pub quiz and two beer festivals at Easter and over the August bank holiday. It's a big pub, so at off-peak times, you might find yourself rattling around, and the atmosphere might seem a bit dead as a result, but I'd definitely recommend it!
