Dating back roughly 200 years to when it was a charming coaching inn, The Hillside Inn stands as a country pub haven near Crawley, offering well-loved British pub cuisine. Sporting classic features of a Victorian inn, the exterior is eye-catching red brickwork, and the interior has chunky rustic beams and a warming hearth for winter dining. Also featured is a pretty patio with seating for al fresco dining in summer.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Hillside Inn menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Hillside Inn ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Hillside Inn is just 15 minutes’ walk from Three Bridges Train Station, or 7 minutes’ drive from central Crawley.

    Initially impressed and the starter was amazing, but then unfortunately went rapidly down hill, and the waiter just didn't seem to be bothered about our comments. You need to change the description on your menu because the chips are not triple cooked that go with the fish and chips, they were pale, insignificant, and soggy!!!!! Certainly not crispy as you would expect from the description. Having passed comment asked for a side dish as he explained they came in cooked and were then cooked again in the kitchen on site!!!! It is such a shame, as you could see chips, much darker than ours going in pots out with courses, but not the ones with the fish. If they were not advertised as triple cooked we would not even have passed comment, other than just not good, but the fact they are advertised lets the restaurant down!!!!!!
    Even more sad as it was one of my birthday suppers with friends so had the Birthday bubbly served to us!!!!!
    Not even an apology - the waiter was very good looking but unfortunately not exactly looking happy and smiley in his work......

    Not sure we will be rushing back again any time soon, which is a shame as quite central for our crowd of friends.

    Would advise friends of the facts as opposed to actually recommending the restaurant.
