Went here for the first time with friends just before Christmas for lunch. Went again today just the two of us and shared a ploughman's lunch which was excellent. An added bonus was the Adnam's beer. Landlord couldn't have been more helpful. We'll be back for sure!

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Firstly I'm sorry that your first choice was unavailable, secondly I'm sorry the meat was not up to the standard we expect. Our normal supplier has just retired so we were using a different one for the first time, so we will address this problem for the future weeks. Thank you for... More

Meeting daughter for lunch we ended up here as the Bell Hotel wasn't doing food. What a great surprise it was. A cosy pub atmosphere and quiet hospitality. We certainly didn't expect something more urban like a Caribbean menu. Hubby, daughter and myself immediately wanted everything on the menu! We settled for the goat curry, a mains portion of the...

All twelve members of the group made positive comments about their experience of eating lunch at The Crispin Inn Bar and Restaurant. The food was good and well priced. The staff were friendly and helpful and the pub itself is simple and unpretentious. Will return when we are next in Sandwich.

Came here for lunch today. It's a nice pub very traditional with a few nice real ales. The food however was painfully slow around 45 minutes for ploughman's and fish and chips. There was no warning of this just horribly short staffed I wish they just warned us when we ordered and paid at the bar. The food itself was... More

I'm sorry about the wait you had for your food, I presume you were one of the many walk ins we had on that day. There was only one booking ! And we had 60 people wanting food 60 minutes. We did at one point stop taking orders to concentrate on the ones we had, some of which were large... More

We came across the Crispin whilst staying at the Bell Hotel, which is opposite. We found two comfy armchairs by the window and ordered sandwiches which were really good but a tad expensive but in keeping with food prices in the area. We liked it so came back for a drink one evening. We received a warm welcome in this... More

Partner and I went for our usual wander out to find a new place to eat and came across the Crispin. The place was packed to the rafters with Christmas revellers and despite my thinking we were never going to get a table I was pleasantly proven wrong. We were given a nice little table just off the bar area,... More

Hi Sarah Thank you for your lovely comments on your visit, and I'm pleased you will be back for another visit. The Christmas booking will have been pre booked and if you arrived as we were getting there food out it can cause a slight delay. We cant tell when Christmas revellers will descend on us, and one minute we... More
