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.

    The Hillside is always very good, food service and chef skills are very consistent. Tonite we had a couple of issues, bit short on staff with an unexpected footfall and a rather poorbit of steak. True to professional form it was all addressed with apologies and a little agreement and not a hint of fuss. Totally recomend the Hillside of course

    Nice cosy venue, although parking can be a bit problematic. Lovely food and great service. Ideal for both lunch and dinner.

  • ((((( 30 November 2017 by Graham from Crawley

    Always good value for money. Restaurant has a very warm and cosy feeling where you can have fine dining but in a relaxed atmosphere.
    Waiting and bar staff always efficient and polite and there is always a good choice of food and drink including wines. The roast dinners on a Sunday are very nice and reasonably priced

    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.
