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.
The Cat Inn offers a lovely atmosphere, great service and, of course, a good, simple menu of high quality food and drink.
Really enjoyed our food. All cooked & presented very well. There could be a few more options for vegetarians but that did not detract from our visit.
Excellent customer service. Good food and wines
Party of four with one vegan (me) incredible tasting main, thank you chef
It doesn’t matter how busy they are Andrew and his crack team always provide a warm welcome The food is superb and always delivered promptly. I would happily recommend to anyone
I have a number of dietary requirements and teh staff could not have been more helpful in providing information about the ingredients used and providing alternatives to things I couldn't eat. These included glutenfree cheese and biscuits, redbush tea and alternative vegetable which didn't have a sauce on it. Excellent service I will definitely come again!
One of the best meals we’ve had There were plenty of gluten free options and these were well marked on the menu Great local wines
A really delicious meal in a super pub! All the staff were charming and we had a lovely lunch - thank you!
Wonderful meal and excellent service. I have put 4 stars for “value for money” because I don’t know how much it cost. I didn’t pay!
Delicious food in a friendly atmosphere
Absolutely wonderful dining experience! Lovely friendly/knowledgeable staff, the food was incredible and gorgeous surroundings. The venison was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten, I can’t stop thinking about it!!
Excellent food in a lovely atmosphere.
A really enjoyable meal great service and would definitely recommend
Best in the south east consistently great. Hard working patron and the best staff.
We enjoyed a top quality lunch in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended
Enjoyed lunch very much after a delayed journey due to weather and burst water main with helpful directions to avoid problem area - thank you!
5 stars in every way. Food, efficient service, ambiance and friendly welcome all very much appreciated and enjoyed.
Excellent. Only hiccup is parking can be difficult
Great food, amazing staff... the 3/5 stars for atmosphere was only because it was a quiet night. Everything else is 5/5 stars.
A very enjoyable evening.
The food that our party was served was exceptionally good. I ordered the skate wing "special"; it was very flavoursome and there was layer upon layer of tasty surprises. All elements were well cooked but especially the star of the show, the skate. My apple and plum crumble was delicious … lovely pieces of plum and a lovely nutty crumble. Thank you to all in the kitchen and bar who made this such a memorable lunch.
Fantastic food and friendly and efficient staff. Bar area a bit too small to fit everyone in!
Lovely meal as always, freshly cooked and delicious
My first trip to The Cat Inn and certainly won’t be my last. Cosy atmosphere and superb food. The fish and chips is delicious!
