We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights for a family wedding. The pub was closed when arrived, someone came out and showed us to our rooms, left us with no information at all. Rooms are outside the pub! Rooms were tatty, bed lumpy, 2 lights in ours didnt work, bathroom was dirty, one towel each, no phone, no phone service...

We stayed last night, just for one night. And though the stay was OK, it was nothing startling and certainly not worth £100 per night. Staff were excellent, first thing to say - the best thing about the place. The room was very basic - cheap pine bed, see-through short curtains which let the light in, nothing particularly characterful or...

I had phones to book and enquire about the menu and was told that the full menu would be available. I booked for 12 noon. My sister and her husband arrived first, on a freezing cold day, having travelled from Truro, to be met with a freezing cold pub, a table that was set up next to the toilets which...

The Cricketers has all the makings of a great pub : 2 open fires, clean freshly laid tables with spotless white napkins, friendly waitresses. A new chef & new menu were advertised too. Menu was small (not a problem) but on offer were steak & ale pie & chips, fish & thick cut chips, steak & chips, burger & chips,...

This is good, clean accommodation in a very nice location . Food and beer was also good. The only problem was the TV was not working in the room, and when we left, there was some confusion over settling the bill.

Stayed overnight and left my favourite nightshirt behind by mistake. The owner posted it back to my home address. He also cooked a delicious breakfast and was charming and personable throughout our short stay. Comfortable and clean room too.

Arrived at 4:30pm. Found place locked up even though booking said I could check in at 3pm. Finally got let in to check in at 5:30pm after an 11 hour driving day. Was shown to my room by the assistant manager (josh) who said after I asked him about check in time that everyone goes home at 3:30 for lunch....

Really disappointed. 1 year ago, food was incredible. Now, menu is limited, overpriced, service was very slow, food took well over an hour to arrive on a quiet evening, food was cold, portions were small...not really a good thing to say, sorry. Won't be coming back.

... Service was so slow, slow to order, slow to serve and extremely slow to clear, so much so that when I asked for the pudding menu I was told the kitchen was closed, it was two minutes past two and the table next to us had not received their mains. Some ten minutes later the other table's mains arrived...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cricketers Inn can be found in the charming village of Steep. Though located just 5 minutes drive outside of the market town of Petersfield it is perfectly located to explore the beautiful South Downs landscape. Nestled at the foot of the majestic ash hangers that provide walkers and ramblers the Hangers Way - a beautiful 21 mile walking trail between Alton, through to Hawkley, Petersfield, Buriton and ending at Queen Elisabeth country park. The route offers great views of Hampshires countryside, a great selection of pubs and inns and rich and varied history - from Bronze age burial mounds to Roman settlements, and the village of Steep is the last residence of poet Edward Thomas before departing for France during WWI and the natural surroundings heavily influenced his works.Petersfield town and the square often holds craft and farmers markets and offers an array of shops, restaurants and activities to visitors.The South Downs Way is also easily accessible providing the intrepid walker or cyclist 100 miles of rural Hampshire to explore. The East Hampshire Cycle route also passes through Steep and is a popular track. By foot, by bike or even by horse there are numerous trails surrounding us showcasing stunning scenery and the views from 'Shoulder of Mutton hill' (where a stone monument to poet Edward Thomas has been erected) are surely some of the best in the county.The Cricketers Inn is a recently renovated pub/restaurant and B&B that offers its visitors a warm welcome and high quality of food, drink and service. With roaring log fires, real ales and a seasonal menu from chef Tom Lefevre (previously of Jamie Oliver), the Cricketers offers all who enter a warm welcome and quality, locally-sourced food & refreshment. Our ethos and aim is providing our customers with friendly service and quality food and to provide our community with a welcoming venue to entertain friends, family and clients within the elegant décor of our charming country pub - our lunch and dinner guests often find themselves sitting and chatting all afternoon or evening as they feel very at home, no problem as far as we’re concerned - it means we’re hitting the mark! We are open 8am until late everyday so whether for morning coffee and newspapers or an evening meal with friends there’s always opportunity to come and visit! ... more   less
