We have visited this Vintage Inn many times over the years, not always leaving a review, of course. Today the two of us arrived at 14.40 to be told that the restaurant would be closed at 15.00. We were hungry, so we decided to stay. We had a sharing platter to start which was OK - we didn't eat the... More

I have been here several times recently and sometimes we have had a really nice meal. The problem is than the next time we go we have a poor meal. It just doesn't seem very consistent which is a shame as when it is good it is really good

Have had lovely meals here. Would highly recommend and have visited many times. Book on line as very difficult to get through on the phone.

Even on a Wednesday night, the Hillside Inn in Crawley offers a vibrant yet chilled out atmosphere where the dining area is separated enough from the bar area. The fact that it is busy mid-week says a lot about the Hillside Inn's popularity with both locals and guests from further afield. This is the second time my partner and I... More

Nice lovely lunch with a friend and we choose the Hillside as its good for parking and easy to reach for both of us. I opted for the Caesar Salad with Chicken which was very tasty, mate went with the burger washed down with 2 lime and sodas rock and roll !

A good pub and restaurant on the outskirts of Crawley. Always busy and always big platefuls. I've had many meals here and always enjoyed them. If you're eating out in Crawley then this is one of the places to choose.
