“A great Sunday lunch”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Cycled in yesterday for a quick Sunday lunch. Got a great table, great service, excellent food and a very good price on the drinks. Have been going to the Hillside for many years off and on and this was one of the best visits. Whatever they are doing, they should carry on.

“Shame they changed the decor and thus the ambience”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We always had a visit to the Hillside when visiting my mother in law. However the last few times we have been the whole atmosphere has changed perhaps since the refurbishment. we liked the mishmash of furniture and the low lighting. Now it is brighter and more stylised and the whole ambience has changed. The staff are very familiar which can be bordering on rude. The food is the same but the place is not as welcoming. Having said that we were there a few years ago just before Christmas and it started snowing. The whole experience has stayed with us as it was totally magic. We were sat by the fire looking out at the lights and it was totally Narnia. Never managed to capture the magic since.

“Worth a Visits”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The Hillside is probably one of Crawley's most staple pub/ restaurants. The menu is varied and allows you have a choice. Great for friends and family with a traditional seating area and outside pub garden. The car park could be bigger. but value for money

“Nice Lunch”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

visited this pub when coming to see relatives, very nice food and a nice environment. Our waitress was lovely and very attentive. She really was helpful advising us on dishes and making sure we were looked after throughout the meal. We would definitely return. Thank you again to our waitress who I think was called Natalie.
