About The Cat Inn
Cat Inn is a 16th century free house, with four bedrooms, set in the picturesque village of West Hoathly, a hilltop village set in the heart of the Sussex countryside. It is in within easy distance from the towns of East Grinstead and Haywards Heath and only 25 minutes from Gatwick Airport.
Our food is cooked to order, using fresh, seasonal and where possible locally sourced ingredients. Our menus change on a regular basis and we also offer a small selection of seasonal specials on a daily basis.
We welcome children over the age of 7.
Dogs are welcome in the "pub" area of the Cat, they are not permitted in the dining room.
Our overnight stay was extremely enjoyable. Andrew and his staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was delicious and the rooms were very comfortable and had lots of little touches which showed that they care about their guests..
Lovely lunch with my Wife, food and service excellent will certainly return again
Food was superb, potatoes not quite right though. All 8 of us commented on them. Tasted like they’d been cooked once then warmed up again. Veg was very tasty and Service was amazing!
We were a party of 6 the service was brilliant and the food was fabulous! If you want great quality friendly service and good ambience go to The Cat...you won’t be disappointed!
Excellent standard in all respects! Thank you.
Fantastic food. Every course was amazing. Great little pub!
Great to have vegan options
Absolutely fantastic lunch at The Cat. The garden was really lovely and the service was spot on. The food was delicious as always.
Clean cosy room, we had a lovely overnight stay and enjoyed an excellent meal outside in the courtyard. A great place to stay.
Great food and service. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent lunch here.Starters of salt and pepper squid and of crispy parma ham salad were well received. Delicious cod cooked to perfection. Well cooked chocolate brownie with soft middle. Attentive service. All much enjoyed and we highly recommend the Cat Inn
Best burgers in the world I have never ever eaten anything here that was not 100% gorgeous. I love the place!
We enjoyed lunch at The Cat very much and will return. The only slight hesitancy was the spicing of the main course vegetables which detracted from their natural freshness and flavour and tended to carry into the meat pie filling and pastry. On the other hand the fish, chips peas was excellent.
Best burger I’ve had in ages!
Love the classy touches - fresh flowers and chocolate truffles put you in a different league
We were sat at a table near the bar and we found it very noisy . I need to just make sure I arrange seating away from the bar when booking another time. Otherwise food service and wine were very good.
It’s always excellent and a busy Saturday lunchtime was no exception. Superb food and outstanding service.
The food at the Cat is consistently fantastic, way too good for a pub and significantly better than most restaurants. That’s why we just keep coming back!
I am a chef and am very pleased with the quality of ingredients,on this occasion I ordered a fish dish and it was cooked to perfection. Well done chef 👍
It is our third time eating here and anytime we are in the area there is nowhere else we’d rather have dinner!!
Fantastic vegan courgette flower dish. Well done.
Perfect evening. Great food and great service especially as there were 9 of us. Look forward to going back
Very helpful staff , wonderful food would recommend to anyone.
What a find! Six of us met on 18 July for lunch before a visit to Standen House just down the road. The food was tasty, inventive and beautifully presented. And the staff couldn't have been more attentive in an understated way. We will be back!
Simply the best dining experience in the south east. Back soon.
