Featured in The Michelin Guide and The Good Food Guide, The Cat Inn West Hoathly is a traditional pub with an acclaimed, Bib Gourmand-winning restaurant. The 16th-century site sits in a picturesque hilltop village, surrounded by Sussex countryside.

Using seasonal and local produce where possible, The Cat Inn menu features elegantly served classics like beer-battered fish and chips, alongside Mediterranean-inspired dishes such as confit duck leg with caramelised orange purée and summer bean and orange salad. Exotic flavours can be found in the pistachio and onion pakora with pilau rice, or Singapore sweet chili prawns with fries and mango and avocado salad.

For dessert, try a selection of local artisan cheeses, or the sumptuous warm banana cake with caramelised banana, peanut ice cream, and salt caramel sauce. The Cat Inn near Crawley is a rustic country pub with inglenook fireplaces, oak beams, and local ales, whilst a large terrace allows for outdoor dining.

Only 25 minutes from Gatwick Airport, The Cat Inn in Sussex is a 7-minute drive from Kingscote Train Station.

    The Cat Inn always offers a fantastic choice on their menu which is fresh and locally sourced. The atmosphere is very cosy especially when it is full, and it normally always is, so booking a table in advance , especially if it is for a special occasion, is highly recommended. The service was a usual efficient and friendly.

    Fabulous, 3 of us eating - the starters, main course and pudding were out of this world. Mostly three/four ingredients used only in each plate but amazing..definitely going back and will tell all and sundry.

    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"
