About The Cricketers - Kew Green

Having stood empty for some time, The Cricketers pub, on Kew Green in Richmond, has officially reopened under new independent ownership.

Now a free house and having undergone a full refurbishment, The Cricketers has resumed its place at the heart of the local community offering excellent food and exceptional, friendly service. The bar serves a wide range of beers, ales, wines, and spirits (and some cocktails).

With its enviable, south-facing position overlooking the cricket green and very close to The Thames (and Kew Gardens), the pub boasts a spacious front terrace perfect for watching the world go by over a bite to eat and a drink or two. The outdoor space continues to the side, with a large garden at the rear. The comfortable and warm interior flows from a relaxed bar area at the front to a slightly more formal dining space to the back, and a secluded dining cubby, nicknamed The Cow Shed.

Head Chef, Gary (previously of The Belvedere in Holland Park) and Sous Chef, Bogdan (previously of Hix) joined by their highly experienced team, welcome you for lunch, dinner and Sunday roasts. With an ever changing menu consisting of a great selection of classic pub fare, there is something for everyone including vegetarians and vegans.

Book a table on the terrace overlooking the green, inside the pub or in our rear sun trap garden.

Sadly on first day back and my partners birthday this was a very disappointing experience. The sandwiches were dry and we had to send one back which was kindly removed from the bill. The wine was very expensive compared to local prices. Hopefully they will sort this out going forwards

Lovely south facing terrace on Kew Green. Very comfortable sitting arrangements and lovely service. The food was surprisingly good, fresh produce and each burger was cooked according to each request, full allergy info was provided without extra fuss. We all utterly enjoyed our time. It was my first time in 2020, but it was a treat! Veranda with a view and splendid wine list and desserts :) thank you!

Absolutely delicious Sunday lunch with the family. Tasty starters were enjoyed, large and delectable mains. Nothing was too much trouble for the excellent servers. Puddings were a delight. Top notch food experience!

Came for Sunday lunch and from the service, to the food, everything was perfect. Not sure who trains the staff but it was by far the best service I have experienced in a long time, both genuine and hospitable.

We had a lovely lunch at the Cricketers. The staff could not have been more friendly, the food and drink were just what was needed (a selection of well cooked and well chosen pub favourites plus a wide range of premium sandwiches), and the atmosphere warm. It was very good to see the pub busier than we had expected because of the ludicrous Tier 2 restrictions.

Went to the Cricketers in Kew for drinks and received a top service from the very friendly staff. The place was very accommodating after the Tier 2 restrictions and let us book a table outside. Whenever we ordered a beer it also arrived very promptly. The beer selection is however currently limited but the beers they have got are nice. Hope for a wider selection in the future when things are more back to normal.

We were booked for 14.30 but were having trouble with parking so called the pub to let them know we were going to be late and they were very nice and kept the table for us. Went for drinks very nice chilled afternoon. Will definitely be back for a Sunday roast.

A lovely evening, good beer, good food and amazing service. They really have given this pub the kick up the backside it needed when it was under the previous brewery ownership. A credit to Kew.

Great pub with friendly staff overlooking the scenic Kew Green. The staff were very welcoming and it's one of the best Sunday roasts I've had in a long time (with all the trimmings of course)! A welcome addition to Kew and will be visiting again soon!

Pleasant staff, nice pub. Food just isn’t good enough. Menu looked good - simple pub food choices but it has to be delivered well. Children’s food demands more these days than literally a piece of chicken and chips. At £15 for a cheese burger and chips it needs to be a home made burger - not a processed piece of meat with pale undercooked chips (which had the taste of potato put back in the oven too many times). The plates reminded me of being back at school. I had high hopes but I’m afraid I was disappointed.
