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.
Enjoyed the meal, second visit. The staff are very helpful and keen to please. The food was good and a pleasant atmosphere.
First rate service and delicious food, made our anniversary lunch truly memorable. Please thank all the staff for giving us such a good time.
You are the best for miles and our absolute favourite. Our family have been coming for years and will continue to do so.
Very good starters
The Cat is my default eating place, never fails to impress.
3 friends and I had a lovely lunch at The Cat on Saturday afternoon. It was the first visit we’d made, although we had in mind trying it out for some time. We were not disappointed. The staff were delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed out meal. Excellent fish and chips and the caesar salad was delicious. We will definitely be returning
Our first time to the Cat and I wish we’d found it sooner! Really beautiful food and a lovely busy atmosphere. I’ve already told lots of friends and family that a visit is a must! Make sure you book and it was
We live in London & have been coming to the Cat Inn for years and it never fails to impress. Please keep up the good work!
We booked ahead for a party of 14 (adults and children) for Sunday lunch. The food was wonderful and the staff friendly and attentive. We never felt rushed. Thank you to Andrew at The Cat Inn for helping with the booking and even personalising our menus. Highly recommended.
Very pleasant evening with an excellent Meal.
Excellent as always !
We had a wonderful stay - lunch, dinner and breakfast the next day were all delicious, the staff was so warm, and the room was very cozy with a pleasingly modern en suite. We will definitely be back (and will recommend to others in the interim!).
Recommended by a friend and what a great recommendation it was. Andrew and his team are fantastic and the food is stunning. Beautiful pub in a very quaint village setting. My wife and I will certainly be returning with friends.
Lovely meal with friends, excellent food, great service and a good night out. Thank you, we will be back!
Very good service from friendly staff food and drink selection and quality also very good
Eaten twice here. Food is gorgeous - a great twist on modern. I love the fact there is English wine & niche English cheeses.
Staff all very cheerful and helpful.
Lovely food. Attentive service who kindly reserved an easy access table as requested.
My first experience at the Cat some 2 years back has continued to be justified. The food is usually fantastic as long as you read the description of the dishes, the staff are fantasctic and I wish it were tha same in my local pub which used to be similar but the owner apparently thinks otherwise.
Everything was very well done and I would thorough;y recommend The Cat to prospective diners.
Excellent food as ever, attentively looked after by Katie (I think), good value and amazing beef!!
Absolutely fabulous food and great service, we cannot recommended you enough. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal
We would have liked a greater variety of vegetables. Crushed frozen peas were not brilliant with lamb.
A very enjoyable meal but some dishes are quite expensive compared to other restaurants in the area. Friendly welcome and excellent service .
Excellent food and drink
