We walked into the Crispin Inn after walking our dogs along the Sandwich quay, expecting a traditional Pub Lunch menu.... However, to our absolute delight, as well as offering homely favourites like bangers & mash, pies, roast dinners etc... there was an entire selection of home cooked Caribbean food! Between us we decided to order three different dishes so that... More

The food is great here if you choose from the caribbean menu, if not the menu is very limited, the ordering process got a little confused but there were ten of us, i marked as average as if you dont like caribbean food, the menu is burgers or lasagne. However the food is tasy and the staff friendly.

Thank you for your kind words about the food and service, although I'm a bit confused. I'm assuming it was last Saturday. which was booked two weeks prior to your visit,and confirmed that same evening. Being a trip advisor user I also assume you checked our reviews , and probably noticed the majority of comments are on the Caribbean food'... More

On visiting Sandwich Market there seems to be a quieter place to have lunch , along by the toll there be Crispin Inn. A warm welcome from the Barman and a few tasters to decide on which ale is no problem. The rain appeared and we decided to stop for a bit to eat, Soup and followed by Cottage Pie... More

We decided to try this Pub purely on the basis of it looked nice. We were treated to a warm and friendly welcome, and were able to sit at any vacant table of our choice. As well as a normal pub menu and a specials board there is also a menu of Caribbean food. We ordered off of the Caribbean... More

The staff at this lovely pub went the extra mile to accommodate the requests of a big family get together. Very helpful and kind staff. Lovely food. The caribbean curry was very good. Kids needs were well met and the dog was welcome too. Local beer selection also. Couldn't have asked for more

Pleasant enough pub lunch, friendly staff, but BEWARE!! The awful background music is compulsory! We asked for it to be turned off, but were refused, despite being practically the only customers there. It is company policy, definitely not to be superseded by the wishes or convenience of patrons. The barmaid eventually turned it down, but was over-ruled 5 minutes later... More

I'm sorry your lunch was spoilt by the music. I did ask the waitress about it and she told me she turned the music down.I understand you move table 3 times before settling for one by a speaker. But I can assure you nobody overruled her as she was the only person working in the bar that day, as we... More

Hi Richard, In answer to your comment about the dumpling ,its sounds as though it needed cooking a little longer and I can only apologise. If we had been aware we could have sorted it out , We have quite a few people who really enjoy them. We are pleased everything else was to your liking Pam and Terry More
