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.
Great food and exceptional service
Lovely pub, with a relaxed feel, a high standard service and quality food. My partner and I were sat in a dark high ceiling annex to the pub restaurant, sat next to a table of 8. The acoustics in this particular part of the pub was awful as the table next to us were noisy. We asked to be moved and the staff were very accommodating.
I think this may have been the best burger I have ever had. Cooked to perfection.
Yet another great night out at the cat ! What more can be said!
Excellent hotel staff and food great
My meal was delicious Cooked to perfection and service was Just right.
Excellent pub , excellent and excellent service!
We all really enjoyed our meal! Everyone commented that it was probably the best roast dinner they had ever had. We will definitely be returning!
Lovely pub, fantastic food.
The food is delicious. The staff are sociable, efficient and knowledgeable about the food and drink. We did like The Fox but The Cat is our favourite local pub to visit.
Lovely meal. We all had the day’s special of cod loin with wilted spinach, English asparagus and caper & crayfish butter sauce. Super. Very good service as well.
The real strength (besides the excellent food) of the Cat Inn is the staff. Always a friendly welcome, smiles all the time and they exhibit a pride in their work. Thank you yet again.
We regularly eat here with anything from a party of 2 to 12. Food is always excellent and they cater well for dairy free and gluten free guests. Always a good couple of vegan options also. Service great, lovely atmosphere.Usually busy so best to book.
Excellent food and served really hot. I can recommend the scotch egg - perfectly cooked, and the cherry trifle (not on the same plate though).
Beautiful pub, with intelligent, attentive staff serving delicious food. Came for a special occasion and were not disappointed.
Delicious fish and chips. Not to be missed.
Brilliant food, service and staff as always. Thanks for a making it a great evening.
Our first visit and what a pleasure! Fantastic food and wonderful staff. Really good value for money too.
A great venue with really good food
Well prepared food and excellent service in a cosy atmosphere.
Superb experience brought about by good food, good service, good value and lovely ambiance.
The shared Greek mezzo to start was delicious, and satisfied both me and my vegetarian guest. (yummy lamb meatballs for me!). We both enjoyed the roasted cauliflower main, and were too full for pudding! I had a sparkling local rose and we both enjoyed the Malbec reserve by the glass. Service was impeccable, swift, friendly and helpful. We loved where we sat, at a corner table, with fresh flowers, (nice touch) and enjoyed a memorable and spacious evening. Thank you.
This was our first visit after the Cat was recommended to me, and we were not disappointed !! the food was great , staff really helpful and happy , we thought it was a real find , not cheapest of places but well worth it
