About Us


Welcome to Cricketers Arms website and by its nature WELCOME to the Cricketers Arms public house. This is the Cricketers Arms of Carlton Place, in the centre of Southampton . We are one of the oldest,  well established, and completely independent pubs on the south coast.

My name is John Cooney and I am the proud owner and I support a brilliant team. We pride ourselves in providing a warm, cosy ambience and the best standards of customer service.

We also provide a wide range of fine beers including locally provided REAL ALES, fresh home food specialising in succulent STEAKS and home made BURGERs. We are one of the few places where you can enjoy T bone steaks.  All our produce is sourced locally.

On Sundays we also serve the finest of roast dinners which have won multiple awards.

Please note that owing to the ever increasing popularity of our food dishes, reservations are recommended. Please use this website or call us on 02380 226448.

We also show live sport both inside and a covered outside area.
