“Needs to do better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

I don't like to be personal but one of the main reasons for not returning was the personal hygiene of one of staff members. The BO pervaded the whole bar and was extremely off putting when trying to eat. On to the food. Fish pie tasteless, dauphinoise potatoes horrible, steak not cooked on a griddle was flobby and not appealing. The next table returned all their main courses as their fried fish was cremated and they found string in a pie. One of the items on the meat platter was missing. Service was erratic to the extent we got free puds.

Give it a miss.

“Friendly staff - good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Good variety of food, with specials. Service was great and we were well looked after. Easy to locate from hotels around Copthorne, near Gatwick.

“OK Value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

Visited the Hedgehog last week for the first time. Expected it to be busy on a Friday but was a bit surprised that it wasn't. Food is what I would call standard pub fare - you get what you pay for - the prices are reasonable and you won't go away hungry! Plenty of different seating areas and if you want a quiet drink then would certainly recommend this pub if you just wanted a drink. Service was prompt and friendly.

“Slightly disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Booked a table for 2 on a Saturday evening. On arrival was disappointed to see very few diners and an almost empty bar. The food was very good and served hot. However, the service was slow. I don't know how they would cope with a full restaurant. The whole place lacked atmosphere
