Popped into Sandwich for lunch and remembered it's a bit of a ghost town on Sundays which led us to The Crispin Inn. Great staff and food, very friendly ,a lovely traditional pub.

Service was slow, considering we only ordered sausage baguettes. Bread was a bit 'pudding-like' though crunchy on the outside. The caramelised onion was a bit sickly.

This is probably our favourite pub in Sandwich. Staff and owners are extremely friendly which contributes to the pleasant atmosphere and the food is both good and unusual. Cosy bar with open fire in the winter.

Went here for lunch after a visit to the nearby Salutation Gardens. Varied lunch menu with a good choice of specials. A member of staff quickly put several tables together so that as a group we could sit together. The baguettes all looked good. I had ham egg and chips which was very good. Slight disappointment that there was no... More

Many thanks for your nice comments regarding your visit. The staff are always happy to accommodate larger groups if we have room, I must apologise that we did not have gluten free bread, it is not a common request and not cost effective to keep it.. But if you do return we would be happy to supply it for you... More

We had a lovely Sunday roast here. Visiting from London. Very accommodating waiter - even gave us extra potatoes and crackling!! For £8 a head, this is very good value for money and quite tasty too! Great location also.
