I had the steak sandwich. The steak was so juicy and the bread was perfectly crunchy. The side of chips was a little bland though. I absolutely love the old rustic vibe of the pub! It stays true to its history by keeping the old architecture that puts you back in time while also remaining clean and comfortable. The service was very fast but also standard and not spectacular. I would personally recommend eating here whenever you are in the area!

Seems like a great spot. This is our second visit, and the first was far batter. Beer was cold. But flat. Food wasn't bad exactly, but for the price....... Could of been better. No complaints, just wished it was more like the first visit.

The atmosphere of this pub is amazing, makes me feel as though I am travelling back in time to an old Australian country pub (In a good way!). The service was great and food was better than you average pub food, also have tap cider which is always a plus.
We ordered 5 meals and one was forgotten but it was super quick to be made up and fixed.

Came here yesterday, spent $30 on the burger (pictured) and a drink. Burger was fine, but they could have added a bit more chips to increase the value of the meal.

Staff were friendly, place is set up nicely with LOTS of outdoor space, but indoor was very limited (ie, you will need to book beforehand if weather is looking dodgy).

I'd definitely come back though.

This place used to have amazing food, but tonight I was completely disappointed. $48 for a 300g scotch fillet with chips is already on the high side in terms of price, but when it's an over-cooked, poor quality piece of meat it's very hard to accept. The schnitzel was OK, but again very expensive for $36. Such a shame this place has gone downhill. Won't be eating here again.

We loved this hidden preserved gem. The actual place has a beautiful outdoor rustic vibe and inside has a nice cosy feel with fireplace. A nice place to relax and unwind.

The food was average, we had the stuffed jalapeno, the jalapeno itself was nice, did not taste any blue cheese in the blue cheese sauce, I was craving hot chips l, unfortunately they came out cold. The salt and pepper squid were ok, a little oily.

We plan to go back there again at night to try their other food.

Excellent courtyard area and great for the family. There were vegan choices and the food was good. The back courtyard is leafy and shaded by tall trees. Plenty of off street parking and a little pocket of history tucked away from the burbs

It was a disappointing experience. It was overpriced and $48 for a steak and a handful of chips and no salad or vegetables (plus charged $3 extra because we asked for mushroom sauce instead = $51 for a medium sized steak and small basket of chips - Thats All, disgustingly overpriced!!!). When asked if this was correct and could we have salad as well, was told No. this place used to have a nice country feel but not anymore. $16 for a very small kids meal. Staff were not friendly or accommodating. Such a terrible experience for a family birthday celebration.

Went here for dinner with my wife. The premises is lovely. Food was decent enough quality but a bit overpriced and small portions. Cost $118- for a Schnitty, a steak, garlic bread, a schooner of great northern and an apple cider. Steak was nice and the schnitty tasted good but small serving sizes. The Diane gravy was terrible. The staff seemed nice enough.
My biggest disappointment is the no cash policy. Would of stayed longer and spent much more had they accepted cash but I will take my business to someone who gives me that option. I wouldn't have eaten dinner there because of this but I was staying at the Atura who also don't accept cash. I understand your cash policy is to make your life a little easier but when it affects the customer experience I think it should be reconsidered. Not telling you how to run your business, just my 2 cents on what would lead to me being a rerurning customer and spending more in your establishment. There were others we were talking too who felt the same.

My family and I went down to blacktown for my sons birthday not knowing the area we didn't know where to eat or have a good time when it came to food. I wish we went to this venue more often while staying the food was exceptional we ordered a variety of food we aren't afraid to spend a little .ore for great food and indeed they delivered the food was the best we had and the money we spent at the venue we spent the same and a little more at others and couldn't believe the difference when we ate here we are highly considering coming back and can't thank them enough for the experience we had compliments to the chefs the only thing I could suggest to make the experience better if I can is for the staff to have a little better communication where to sit and order we came in a little confused didn't know we had to order at the bar or the dress code for the venue even though I asked the questions. But apart from that which mind you isn't a complaint by any stretch its just more of a suggestion if you haven't been here before. I hope management can pass this on to the staff as they do need this recognition for the fantastic work they provided for us

Highly recommend this place for your next function. Not only affordable but the staff were amazing! We had our vowel renewal here a few weekends ago and everything was fantastic! Staff were amazing, very accommodating and the food was delicious. Big shout out to the staff and management who worked our event, you executed our vision perfectly. Guests loved the rustic feel of this venue.

Outside dining is not the best depending on where you are seated, All decent seating areas were reserved. The only area which was not reserved in which we chose to sit constantly had tree leaves falling into my food and drink. Service was prompt and friendly A1. food was nice, nice atmosphere with a rustic feel. There is a carpark at the rear of the venue, not overly large but the other option is roadside parking. It would be nice for all dining table areas to be paved to be as comfortable as the popular highly reserved areas. Otherwise a nice experience.

Had my son's 1st Birthday here on the weekend. Staff were great, friendly and very accommodating. We had the feasting menu for our guests and the food was fantastic and so delicious. Ourselves and our guests thoroughly enjoyed it. I only wish we had ordered more. The venue was perfect and rustic and the band and entertainment we hired added to the wonderful atmosphere.
I would definitely go here again for a casual lunch or dinner or, hire the venue again for future events.
Thank you for making my son's 1st birthday a memorable one!

Intimate and inviting , this pub serves deceptively filling food portions and a variety of great beverages in an idealic setting. A hidden gem of Western Sydney worth the drive for.

Visited the Royal Cricketers Arms for lunch today and left quite disappointed. The establishment looks quite nice, and the staff were friendly however the selection of beer was far below average, no local craft beers, and no decent spirits. $11 for a Johnny Walker Black - ridiculous, the bottle is only $50. I was also unable to order said Johnny Walker neat, the bartender said they have to serve it with ice. So I just didn't bother. Ice dilutes and ruins the flavour of whisky and personally I enjoy drinking my whisky over 45 minutes or so, I'm not here to get drunk. At those prices - how can you feel you have the right to dictate how someone enjoys their beverage?

Ordered a British style pie for lunch - I assumed this would have been a pot pie however what came out was a tiny portion of beef and potato served in what looked like an Army ration kit, with a piece of puff pastry sat on top, like a cracker. What a horrendous experience, such a shame because from the outside while walking in I was telling myself this is going to be great! Won't be returning.

Beautiful pub with nice outdoor seating & garden.
Food is overpriced and substandard. The wings were the best thing we ordered but $17 for a very small serving. Steak sandwich was served between two pieces of un-toasted garlic bread... an awful flavour & texture combination. Burger was also average. Given the remote, semi industrial location & high prices I won't be going back.

Beautiful old pub, ambience is nice, fireplace, food was delicious. I had the slow cooked beef pie. Staff are friendly and service is good.

There isn't many pub's like this left. Nothing makes me happier than sitting by the fire, having a beer and enjoying a really great meal. Cricketers arms delivers on all three. The staff are relaxed, attentive and professional, you never wait long for service.

Beautiful seating (indoor and OUTDOOR), incredible service and super tasty food! Also great lemon lime bitters, personal fave. Will definitely be coming back soon.

Lunch Visit - disappointing overall.

Specked Hen beer on the advertised menu but no longer stocked. White Rabbit beer not on that day. Bangers and mash not being served that day. Limited staff so service was just average.

Meals well over priced by some margin and under sized. Half a dozen small bits of the same lettuce is not a salad.

But that said great atmosphere both inside with the open fires and beer garden with the sun shining.

Will return just for the atmosphere of the place.

A beautiful place to have dinner with your partner or family. It has a great 80s vibe with a nostalgic taste in music. Clean bathrooms and kind staff. Appetizing and flavourful food cooked perfectly. However, the value of food was rather disappointing, small burger and steak with only small handful of chips. Overall, the restaurant was beautiful, I would definitely like to visit again. I would also recommend the restaurant to family or friends.
