We are locals who live in sandwich and drink regular in The Crispin Inn. We had our first meal last week ordering a home made steak and Stilton pie, which was absolutely delicious. The portion size was perfect. My partner ordered a burger which came well presented and also home made. We told the landlady this was the best meal we had eaten out in along time, the atmosphere in the pub was lovely with candles lit on the table and pleasant bar staff. We will defiantly be returning.

Went for lunch today. I have to say it was the best roast dinner I have had in a long time. The staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing was to much trouble. I will definitely return when we are next up in Sandwich visiting family.

Returned after 8 years following indifferent meal and pleased to see the change wrought by new (3 years) owners.
Sunday lunch is especially good value and ales are excellent.

I am a very fussy eater and so was delighted when I took my first bite out of the Jerk chicken. It was delicious.. So much so that I went back for more a few days later.

My husband and baby had sausage and mash- they both enjoyed the food as well!
