Popped in very late for lunch - after 2pm . Staff were so welcoming and friendly... also very dog friendly - doggie biscuit and a little bowl of water that our dog tipped over. .. dang! Food was fabulous. Fish and chips and mushy peas and two Caribbean veggie curries that were delicious - served with rice and salad. My husband is pesciterian, my son and I are vegetarian (however, I reckon the veggie curry could be vegan). The staff were so friendly and helpful that I am sure they would be able to recommend something that was or wasn't. Nothing was too much trouble.... great meal choices. Very friendly place, great staff very tasty food, highly recommended.

I have just kicked off the festive season with a fantastic meal here. I opted for the traditional choice from the menu and couldn't fault it in anyway, delicious, well cooked and plenty of it!! Service was brilliant and the wonderful landlady made us feel very welcome and relaxed. Lovely place and a very friendly welcoming atmosphere with gorgeous Christmas decorations, I would highly recommend a visit/party here.

Our first Christmas meal out on Monday evening, the Crispin really pushed the boat with it's beautiful & stylish decorations. We had a super 3 course meal... Especially the sweet potato croquettes. Excellent service and finishing with coffee in the snug. We were made to feel welcome and had a really fun evening. Incidentally this is the place to go for the finest curried goat for miles, it is superb.
