We were flying out of Gatwick the next day and didn't want hotel food so we stopped at the vintage inn as the reviews were good and vintage Inns usually have a good standard. On entering we were shown to a seat near a roaring fire which was great as it was cold outside. We chose from a very limited... More

Our second visit to hillside inn - quite disappointing compare to the first one. Ordered the same burgers as 1 month ago. Veggie one was dry and almost inedible. There was no hummus as advertised and when I asked for it, I got avocado instead. Beef burger wasn't as good either. Service was non existent. Order at the bar, pay... More

Great pub lunch in a warm welcoming atmosphere. Two real fires burning adding to the ambience. Fantastic value for money, great flavours and a good selection of beers. Recommend a visit for business or with family.

Popped in with my girlfriend for late dinner. Service was good and pleasant but the food was less than average. We were quite late but I would not visit again assuming the standard of the food was the same.

Pre-booked our Christmas lunch with our choices but this didn't help us get our orders any quicker. No Christmas music or atmosphere. Quality of the food was average; but the log fire was nice.

Had never been there before, and 12 of us went for the first time for our Christmas dinner.. It was excellent! A real log fire, cosy surroundings, and attentive staff.. The food was excellent, agreed by all, and the wine I had, a Malbec, was good and reasonably priced. I suspect we will be back next year!
