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.
As always, a superb experience. Fantastic food and efficient, friendly service.
Only our 4th visit but we come back when in the area as we know we get good food. 2 of us had the belly pork which was really nice. 1 had lamb and my wife had the beef but regretted not have chosen the pork or lamb.
As usual an excellent Christmas dinner 🎅 service amazing 🧚♀️ Great beer too 🍺 Well done The Cat 🐈
Thoroughly enjoyable by all in our group aged 0-82!
Absolutely fabulous meal Only wished we lived closer!
My favourite gastro pub
A really enjoyable lunch - we will return (again and again...).
Always enjoyable, makes for sa beautiful evening.
Great food but the modern dining area lacked character and atmosphere.
We just wish you were in our doorstep as we would be most regular customers!
Attended for evening meal on Sat. 24th with Son, Daughter In Law and her parents all were very impressed with our choice.
We had a really lovely lunch. Excellent and very dog friendly.
Excellent meal! Lovely relaxed atmosphere with delicious food.
The pie is amazing and means my husband doesn’t even look at anything else! the menu is varied and it’s always hard to choose. I had the pork and would have liked a little bit more of a generous serving of mash (of course I could have asked!) we love returning to The Cat!
Never had a bad meal here. It is certainly worth the 50 minute trip there and back.
Really lovely location, great food and drink, cosy atmosphere, the real fire was fab! The staff were really really helpful and attentive without being overbearing. Will definitely come here again!
Our local always delicious,hard working host and staff make sure you book as this is a busy venue. Good fun good food good service what more can you ask 😀😀
The food was excellent, service attentive, and good selection of wines.
Had a wonderful evening, with great service and amazing food. Will be back soon.
Can rely on the Cat for having a good choice of menu items, well cooked and well presented.
