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 service, great food, lovely setting, fantastic pub
Always a great place to eat or drink. We should do it more often.
Can be a little noisy if seated near the service/bar area. Superb food and service. In the very short time we have known of its existence, have been back six times!
Food was 5 star 💫 absolutely fabulous, thank you
The roast beef was amazing, so lean and perfectly cooked
Excellent dinner on Friday night. So good in fact we came back for lunch on Saturday!!!!
Such a lovely setting, we had the most amazing meal.
It’s always excellent and deserves all the plaudits it receives.
Our first visit to The Cat Inn and certainly not our last! A cheery welcome was followed the sight of a comfortable pub with a fire in the grate. The service was friendly and well informed about the drinks and menu available. Well, the food was amazing! A very high standard of cooking and an excellent choice of food on the menu and specials board. To be recommended.
Just perfect again
All great as usual, much enjoyed by our Berlin friend ! He especially liked the lighting effects.
Excellent - as ever!
There is nothing bad to say about this excellent pub. The fish and chips are another level. Beautifully cooked fish and crispy chips and so creatively presented. I just wish I didn’t have to drive for one hour to get there!
Great weekend lunch with warm genuine hospitality
My friend and are are regular visitors to the Cat Inn. The food is usually very good but, on this occasion, my friend's meal was below it's normal standard. However, her comments were relayed to the manager and dealt with promptly and satisfactorily. These things happen and it's how they're dealt with that results in return in the future. We will be returning!
Fabulous meal with a great friend. Waiter was friendly, funny and professional. Will be back soon.
Always great food and friendly service
Always the best team and best food
Food at the cat is amazing
Apart from courgette fritters the meal was excellent.
We were very well looked after, on a very busy lunch service.
Sadly, simply appalling service - incredibly slow, disinterested and almost rude from the lady in charge - made our special Valentine's Day lunch a real disappointment. Food as good as ever - but this service is absolutely unacceptable
One of our favourite places to eat. Super food, service and atmosphere. We will be back again soon. First class and highly recommended
