Try the goat curry

Cosy friendly pub with restaurant. Some unexpected choices on the menu as well as some standards, the goat curry is great and def worth a try if you like spicy food. The Staff are always friendly, dogs are welcome and prices are good.

If traditional olde worlde inns with good ales, typical British grub at reasonable prices and a surprising selection of authentic West Indian food is your thing, then The Crispin Inn is the place for you. We visited on a Saturday night, had 3 pints, 2 glasses of wine, shared a West Indian starter & had 2 mains all for ~£47.... More

I'm a resident of Sandwich and have visited the Crispin on a few occasions with my wife... I was blown away by the curried goat, it's been the best I've ever tasted! Today I rang up and asked if it was possible for a take away curried Goat meal... I was very pleased that it was not too much trouble... More

I visited this place with a friend late last summer and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The food was delicious and the desserts were gorgeous - and I am not a big dessert eater. Situated right on the banks of the river, I would definitely recommend eating here.

Stayed at the Bell Hotel and didn't want to pay hotel prices, so popped across the road to the Crispin, they have a limited range of ales, but it was a typical ale pub. When down here again I will return.
