Visited on a sunny, but not too warm, June Friday evening. The setting beside the Green is marvellous. Three excellent real ales on. We only sampled the Surrey Hills Dew Drop which was beautifully kept, but they were also serving Sharp's Doombar and Fuller's London Pride. Inevitably this is more of a diner's venue rather than a beer drinker's, and we opted to eat outside though the temperature was beginning to drop. Not helped by the fact that after swiftly serving the starters, they promptly forgot our main meal! Eventually the meal arrived with profuse apologies. We were offered a free drink in compensation! The food is good, though a little expensive. We stuck to the only real pub food on the menu, as opposed to more pretentious dishes - beefburger and fish and chips, both of which were very enjoyable. Kids abound in the evening, but there is the large Green for them to occupy themselves on.

Looked a nice place and has Aspall's cider, but I didn't get to try it as after standing several minutes at the bar without being served, I wandered out again.

Nice pub, good range of beers and some proper lagers - Kozel and Pilsner Urquell. Very food orientated but no real suprise and nearly every pub in the area is but potentially very expensive. Nice location, very nice in the summer with tables overlooking the green. I would say when I visited the tables laid out for food were mainly occupied by family groups with children but it was quite early, about 7pm and were all well behaved.

Much improved since the new lot turned up. Good range of wines, reasonable range of beers and lager, the beer can be of a variable standard though, and they seem to have no problem with hoards of screaming kids running about inside the place last time I was there, so we moved on.

Friendly staff, especially if you like to be told 'Enjoy!!!' every time you buy anything at all. (And yes, they do say it with three exclamation marks.) On the positive side, although I've been told to have a nice weekend and to enjoy the rest of the evening, I haven't been told to 'have a nice day' yet, or asked if I want fries with my Shere Drop.

And 'Shall I take these empty glasses for you?' ... What do you mean 'for me'? It's not *my* job!

I hope it doesn't continue down this route or it will end up as a creche that sells alcohol with a 'side order' of U.S. insincerity.

But if the 6-year-olds aren't in and you grit your teeth as you get handed your drink, it's still a very pleasant place.

Visited the new Cricketers the other day, and what a pleasant surprise it was! The place has definitely improved since the last time I was there. Originally only intended to go in for a drink, but whilst I sat there the food passing by looked so tasty and smelt so good I ended up caving in and getting a meal! I opted for the Spaghetti Bolognese, and practically licked the plate clean! It was affordable but completely worth every penny. I�ve always been a fan of the atmosphere in the Cricketers, and since its facelift things seem to have gotten better and better.
