It's a tradition

We have been going to the Hillside for about 10 years. We always visit when flying from gatwick and love the traditional menu, especially the pie. We always book online via there website as it can get very busy.

Great pub, good food with a nice menu to choose from. Good for a roast on a Sunday and friendly staff always! If you fancy a dessert I recommend the delicious cookie dough with ice cream!!

The food here is always reliably good and on this occasion we were not disappointed! We were shown to a nice table and provided with drinks on arrival. I had the belly pork which was cooked to perfection, it really was scrummy, my husband had the shepards pie and lamb rump, initially it was undercooked for my husbands taste however... More

A good pub meal. I found the booker of our group meal on Xmas day had booked early so we were asked to get there at 12-12.30. We got there for 12 but found the placed closed and other guests, elderly also having to stand outside and waiting in the rain. Shame the hosts could not let them in. The... More

I've been coming here for a few years now as it's a convenient location for me and my friends to meet, so it was an obvious choice when we recently got together for a quick bite to eat at lunch time. Unfortunately, we had to move twice before we could even look at the menu, as the chairs were broken... More

Went there with friends on Saturday night very enjoyable evening. Décor really nice & staff very friendly & attentive. Good menu quite a lot of choice. I had the King prawn & Avocado cocktail really nice but the sauce was rather thin so not a lot of taste. I then had the slow roasted Chicken with Dauphine potatoes & Veg,... More

Had two different party meals here, one family, the other friends on 11th and 13th December. We were given a great table and the food and service were excellent. The plates were overladen with food and simply delicious chosen from the Christmas menu. We will, without doubt be back again next year for our Christmas parties.
