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.
Simply the best Sunday lunch we've ever had. Not cheap but well worth it for the superb quality of the food and the delightful setting. Great service too. Highly recommended.
Always great food
Always excellent. Congratulations on your Michelin entry. You deserve at least one star, although we don't want you to be so popular that we can't make a booking! We especially appreciated the warm and friendly service which created a relaxed environment in which to enjoy our utterly delicious food. Keep up the good work. We will return.
We enjoyed our meal for four people. Three adults had rib eye steaks - and for the money we were charged for those steaks they were certainly not adequate size. We visit steak restaurants in London all the time and for the same money you get given a much bigger size steak.
Excellent steak & ale pie with lovely winter veg. The haddock, smashed peas and tartar were super too. Very friendly, helpful service. Great way to spend a lunchtime. Thank you.
The food was great, and we had a lovely time. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Just great. Everyday food prepared to the highest standards. Why can't all food be like this?
We enjoyed a very pleasant evening in lovely surroundings. We will be back!
The service was poor - we had to get up and order drinks and we our pudding order never got taken so we gave up and went home (having got up and asked for the bill!). The food was decent but nothing in the outstanding range
See review on trip advisor
fantastic service, amazing food everytime i go! staff are very attentive and welcoming
The nicest steak and ale pie I have had for a long time. The light bites are also delicious if you do not want a full blown starter.
Have recently been recommended to this pub in the last few months ( only lived in the area for 18 months.) now it seems to be one of our favourites! Well done team
Exceptional food. The only thing better than the food was the service. Never had better. A real joy from start to finish.
Excellent food. Best in the area.
Excellent. As it always is. Our favourite place. Thank you. X
Lovely lunch celebrating our 35th Anniversary never been before just found on line as we had to be near Gatwick and we were so pleased we found you. The staff were amazing didnt hurry us a lot of choice and my steak was really good as was my husbands cod. We force a pudding down as well and so glad we did.
The best ginger and toffee sauce we have ever tasted.
Had a delicious roast lunch here on Sunday - attentive staff and lovely surroundings. Will definitely come here again
Great meal, great environment. One of the best pubs in Sussex.
Fantastic food and great wine list.
Requested an intimate table and it was provided!
Amazing pub can not fault anything!!!
Another great evening at The Cat. Lovely food and very helpful and friendly staff. Always very welcoming to us and our dog.
