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.

    Service very good unlike the food. The beef duo was as tough as they come, the fish dry and the tomato soup Luke warm. Took ages to arrive.

  • ((((( 18 June 2017 by Ruth Marchant from Crawley

    My friends and I had a really lovely evening. The food was excellent and the young man who served us was attentive without being being intrusive. Service was quick and it's very reasonably priced.

    Friendly staff, warm welcome. There was an incident outside the Beer Garden entrance involving a child who crashed her bicycle. The bar staff immediately went to her and gave First Aid. Exceptional customer service and helping attitude towards people.

    It was nice.

  • (((** 2 May 2017 by Sandra Morgan from Crawley

    Disappointing this visit. Chosen food not available and a somewhat " oh well never mind" attitude to this problem.

  • ((((( 17 April 2017 by Michelle Blackall from Crawley Down

    Lovely environment with old style beams and well laid out. Menu not too big so each dish is of good quality. Friendly staff and very prompt service. Roast is amazing and sea bass one of the best we've had. Scrummy!

    Gone down hill food not as good as it use to be. Haven't been in over a year and was disappointed
