Nestled in Delf Street, in the historic and economic center of the town of Sandwich, the Fleur de Lis is a pub/restaurant whose name is sure to make you smile. We ate a full English breakfast, special with all the pure English culinary traditions like home baked beans, tomatoes, onions, sausage, mushrooms, bacon, eggs, toast ... Delicious, plentiful and not too expensive ... Pure bliss! At noon, the Fleur de Lis also offers dishes that aren't too expensive such as 6 pound mussels, chili con carne that was sooooo good, and jacket potatoes of excellent quality. A good place that shouldn't be missed.
If you are more than tired of British cooking, jacket potatoes, fish & chips, etc....Bangkok Cafe, located in the center of the town of Sandwich, is a fun and exotic alternative. It is indeed a quality, cheap Asian restaurant, which was not displeasing to us! We especially recommend the green curry pork and shrimp with sweet and sour sauce. Both dishes are less than 5 pounds, and the daily menu with a choice to have two dishes is 7.5 pounds. Nice, delicious and exotic.
As one of the oldest restaurants in the town of Sandwich, a real key institution, the Fisherman's Wharf is one of the most enjoyable. It benefits from a fantastic location, right on the edge of the pretty river running through the city. We loved the beautiful terrace, as well as its excellent food quality. We ate a delicious salad with salmon and brie, served with a delicious pesto (8.75 pounds), and a traditional fisherman's pie with excellent workmanship, huge and well stocked, purely typical! A good place for its setting and for the very friendly welcome.
While looking for a good table to sustain us for lunch, we followed the advice of a group of young people we met in the street and headed to one of the true institutions in the city of Sandwich, the Crisp Inn. And we were well advised. Their fajitas, which certainly aren't traditional, were just amazing! They were so plentiful that we were not able to finish them, but we can say that we tried! Approximately 12 pounds per person, but it was well worth it!
The Red Cow Inn is one of the oldest pubs in Sandwich and located just a short distance from the market square and its Thursday morning market. It actually dates from the mid-eighteenth century, and would have been originally built in 1735. Today, it's a simple yet nice restaurant that serves curry every Friday night (a curry and a pint for 8.5 pounds) and has a very nice beer garden out back.
