The Cat Inn is fabulous, the food is delicious and the service is friendly and efficient. I had the whole Brighton plaice with crayfish, capers, beurre noisette, charlotte potatoes and tenderstem broccoli. It was to die for!
My dining companion drove all the way from London to sample the Cat Inn fare and was not disappointed. It's a bit of a drive from my home in Lingfield but it's worth making the journey to this fab place which has quickly become my favourite "local"
