Welcome

Old House Inn

Latticed windows, wonky ceilings and oak-beams give away the age of this converted farm worker’s cottage before it was lovingly renovated and transformed into The Old House Inn, a true country dining pub with rooms. Situated just minutes from Gatwick Airport yet with a surprisingly remote feel, here at The Old House Inn you’ll find outstanding British food, great local ales and wine and elegant accommodation.

The building itself dates back to the early 16th century and since this time, The Old House Inn has fulfilled a number of roles including family home, Tea Rooms and even a well regarded French Restaurant. However, so comfortable is it in its transformation, one can’t help but wonder if it shouldn’t have been a pub all along.

Every inch of The Old House Inn offers classic countryside charm. Think a series of interlinking rooms with low ceilings, nooks and crannies galore, warm rustic fabrics, comfy banquette seating and chunky leather armchairs. Retro accessories, copper, brass, candles and crackling log fires complete the look.

Aiming always to give you a great experience, food is simple yet cooked to perfection and presented beautifully by our talented Head Chef Dan Prince. Working with the freshest seasonal ingredients, sourced locally wherever possible, menus feature imaginative modern British cuisine alongside classic pub dishes. Our food is perfectly complimented by our welcoming bar that serves a great selection of real ales as well as having an excellent wine list.

Service strikes the perfect balance between efficient and casual, warm and friendly. Situated on the edge of the village of Copthorne and just a short drive from Gatwick Airport, we also have 6 stylishly decorated bedrooms overlooking our large mature garden for you to enjoy a night or two in the countryside before you fly or if you’re passing through.

With a real focus on great service and a rapidly growing reputation for serving superb food in stunning but relaxed surroundings, The Old House Inn makes the perfect venue for every occasion. Whether you are looking for a quick lunch, a delicious evening meal, a private party, a business meeting, an overnight stay or a relaxing weekend away, we look forward to welcoming you.
