We had brunch at Crispin's on a rainy Sunday in October - we chose to go there as it was the first decent looking place that we came across. Our greeting was friendly though we were not shown to a table so wandered around a bit before we settled. The menu was extensive - we chose full English breakfast, we were asked whether we wanted brown or white toast, tea or coffee. We asked if we could have poached eggs and were told no due to H&S as they have lots of people in the kitchen and pots of water are dangerous!!? Odd surely frying is even more dangerous! Our food arrived delivered by a lady who seemed a little harassed. Our baked beans arrived separately. We asked for brown sauce and mustard and huge catering packs of tomato and brown sauce appeared but no mustard! Our food was good, there was a lot of it. Throughout the whole of our meal though we could hear staff in the front reading out reviews from Trip Advisor and making comments - good that reviews do get read but please be discreet when discussing them. We could have known the reviewer or have even been that person - you never know!!
Only downer was when it came to paying the bill to find that tea was not included in the cost of the breakfast which pushed our bill up - breakfast should really include as much tea as you can drink to make this good value.
