Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked a Sunday lunch here and wasn’t disappointed, lovely pub, very welcoming and fabulous food. Only wish I had taken a photograph to post, but the dinner didn’t hang around long enough! Beautifully cooked roast pork with all the trimmings, will be back again

Felt safe on arrival, saw regular cleaning throughout afternoon. Sunday lunch was amazing, pink, soft beef, REAL roastie, crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy inside! At last! Fresh mixed veg and could just eat the cauliflower cheese straight out the dish! Large portions, felt...stuffed until Tuesday but too good to leave. Lovely atmosphere, nice wine and choice of desserts but sadly couldn't manage one, too full.More

Wow properly one of the best Sunday lunches I’ve had in a long time, chicken tender and flavoursome, potatoes crisp on the outside fluffy in the middle, and so much veg I couldn’t eat it all, will be back for sure.

A change in management in the past two weeks has brought brilliant quality pub food at affordable prices to this historic Inn. The latest covid restrictions are being well adhered to and it is great to see that the Catts Inn has returned to its...welcoming village pub atmosphere with friendly staff and a first class chef. At present the Catts is shut on Mondays but well worth checking the menu for other days. Friends, and I particularly enjoyed chef's Sunday roast and a delicious lunch during the week. Really looking forward to our next visit.More

I came to visit my brother and his wife, whom live in Rotherfield. My wife and I had been driving for three hours and were relieved to arrive In the village. We were very hungry and a little early, so we decided to pop in...to the catts inn, as my brother had recommended it for a decent breakfast. As we walked through the door, we noticed there were no customers (bad sign) there was a man behind the bar (I presume the owner) who obviously heard us enter but didn’t bother to lift his head from his newspaper. I then ventured “excuse me” politely, to which he responded “what” i asked slightly amazed. Are you serving food, to which he said “no” abruptly and sank back in to his paper. Horrible rude and unfriendly man. No wonder there were no customers. So unnecessary.More

A friend has just moved to the area, so we thought we'd try out the Catts Inn. We were not very impressed. The small dining room was nicely decorated if somewhat old fashioned in style. The food was plentiful - too much really for lunchtime...appetites -but was completely unremarkable. The choice was pretty standard pub fare, but wasn’t very tasty and was a bit on the heavy side. I am told though that the pub has been significantly improved by it’s present landlords. We will be trying the other establishments in the village and not returning here in a hurry.More

Great evening at The Catts Inn Rotherfield last night. Very tasty food, home cooked and plentiful. The owners have done a fantastic job refurbishing the place and all the food looked and smelt lovely. Will definitely be returning to try some other dishes. Well done...and hope you are part of the village for many years to come. If you are in Rotherfield or passing through, give this pub a try - you won’t be disappointedMore

Sometimes only an English Sunday lunch will do and one like the Catts Inn hits the mark. Our family had beef chicken and nut roast (separately) The quality of the meat was superb and really nicely cooked. The accompanying veg -especially the cheesy cauliflower was...really nice. definitely Worth a visit.More

Had our Sunday roast last weekend in this clean and fresh pub. Roast beef and roast pork. Was served with crispy roast potatoes, stuffing, little sausages, cauliflower cheese, carrots, red cabbage, Yorkshire puddings and gravy. The meat just melted in your mouth and whole meal...was delicious. Will certainly go back for more.More

Popped in here as my brother lives in Crowborough. What great food. We had the roast and it was to die for. Just like my mums. The menu is full of pub favourites and you get plenty of it.

Good to see you CBB. Yeah it was slow roasted Sirloin that weekend. We had a great response from diners. The girls also had a pretty full tip jars which always suggests the food went down well.
