Tucked away within the West Sussex countryside, The Curious Pig in the Parlour offers homecooked British food and wood-fired pizzas in a sweetly eccentric setting. In warm weather, the sprawling, leafy beer garden is the perfect place to laze around and soak up the sun while you enjoy a meal and a pint al fresco.

The deliciously hearty menu includes a selection of different cuts of steak cooked to your liking in a charcoal oven, served with a choice of sides, homemade steak burger with mixed leaves, red onion, fresh tomato, gherkin & a special burger sauce, served with thick cut chips, and a list of mouth-watering pizzas, including The Curious Pig Special, topped with roasted bacon, pulled pork shoulder, pork meatballs, tomato sauce, mozzarella, red onion, sweet caramelised apple, sage & rocket pesto, fresh watercress & homemade parsnip crisps.

Sharing platters crammed with sticky pork ribs, honey mustard sausages, scotch egg and roast ham are also available, alongside a stellar selection of drinks. With rustic furniture, mismatched chairs & a collection of quirky wall décor, The Curious Pig in the Parlour boasts a cosy shabby-chic interior.

The Curious Pig in the Parlour in - Crawley is a 10-minute drive Gatwick Airport Railway Station.

    Where do I start, worst dining experience we have had in a very long time. 6 of us placed our starters order 2 items were delivered wrongly placed our mains order after long wait told that 4 items on our order were not available when 2 other items came it was all from frozen stock. when we complained were told they had a chef quit waiter staff not turned up. Never will we return.

    Awful food.... ordered fillet steak steak ok, and nearly cooked to our requirements, chips lovely
    And as for our field mushroom, I thought just one tiny one on the plate was a bit tight....

    We ordered a grilled fish started, was not grilled poached instead and the sour dough bread was soggy and not grilled.... this was sent back to the kitchen. We’re a message ce back to us that it has been grilled and nothing wrong with it!

    I’m glad to say that the couple next door but one table sent something back to the kitchen too, so ours was not a unique situation...

    Staff lovely but food mmmmmm! Won’t be going back I’m afraid

    Tuesday nights is 50% off steak night so a very good nights to go. Great steak, chips were very over cooked so they did kindly replace them which was good but the portion sizes seem to be all over the place as the garden salad was quite small this time compared to the last time I visited. Overall pretty good

    Went for Friday night dinner with friends and we were given a lovely booth which was great. Food was also fabulous but the service left a lot to be desired. We were completely ignored by the hostess on entry who didn't even acknowledge we were there and the second waitress told us off for being late (I had called ahead to let them know as we got held up). Service throughout the meal was incredibly slow and we had to chase drink orders. The atmosphere was great but the poor service did dampen the evening somewhat

    Staff were. Dry pleasant and helpful and as it was such a lovely day seated us in the outside area which we preferred. Food ok but they had run out of the fish dish my husband wanted. My roast dinner must have been left under the keeping warm lights for a long time because when it came the roast beef was uncuttable...just like a leather shoe. However this was replaced with no problem. The children enjoyed their pepperoni pizza and brownie dessert

    We booked for 20:00 and arrived at 1930. We were seated straight away, in the main walkway. We asked if we could move and they obliged straight away. Service was very good, so was the food, overall we had a very pleasant experience and will dine there again.
