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.

    We came earlier than the time I had booked for and was given a very warm welcome and offered a choice of table for the 4 of us. We loved the decor and ambience! Our waiter was very attentive and friendly and we didn't feel rushed. Food generally was excellent, but my sirloin steak could have been a bit thicker and better quality ( like M&S sirloin steaks!). Ladies toilet could do with sprucing up - looks a bit tired. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and will return! Thank you.
