The pub is the worst place in Brighton: dirty glasses and rude staff. Take a picnic and enjoy the countryside.
Devil's Dyke is a natural semi-circular mount in the middle of the South Downs. Legend has it that the Devil wanted to flood the Sussex Weald (the flat area to the north where you can see for miles), so started to dig a channel through the Downs to the sea. His digging woke up a local woman who came out... More
A few miles north of Hove, lovely spot for a walk, paths down into the devil's dyke itself, or along the hillfort earthworks at the top. There is even a large pub and car park to one side (part hidden by trees). Great views along the downs and across northwards towards Surrey Hills and London in the distance.
We often frequent this this pub, the food and service is generally quite good - they could do with more floor staff. I would recommend definitely recommend it for the Summer time as the views are outstanding!
This place is not known for its great cuisine. It has a captive audience on top of the Dyke, it is dog friendly, relaxed and ok value for money. What we could not fault was the SERVICE!! Ultimately, if the food is average but is more than tempered with attentive, professional, non over bearing service then it gets my vote.... More
We decided, once it stopped raining to take an open too bus up to devils dyke, great experience, the kids loved it and the views are fantastic when you get there. Had a lovely meal in the pub at the devils dyke, very child friendly. Make a plan to visit if you can..

Brilliant staff, knowlegeable about their beers/wines and food. Great atmosphere, with open log fires. Altogether thoroughly inviting. Will definitely go again. Only reservation was the food. A reasonably varied menu, in parts inspiring. Sadly, the... More
We went to Devil's Dyke restaurant for lunch last Saturday with my daughter and boyfriend. The food was the worst we have had for a long time. The menu read really well - beautiful description of salad - it was very dried up leaves, no dressing. Prawn cocktail was a big leaf on a plate with a few prawns and... More
Beautiful part of Sussex, lovely to watch the paragliders if the weather is good, have a walk & take in the views. Just wouldn't recommend eating in the pub, can't understand why it's so busy as the food is nothing to write home about & takes an age to arrive (take a picnic!). £2 to park all day so good... More
Visiting son and partner we took them for Sunday lunch. Lovely location and beautiful roast! Service from Becky our waitress was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Wish we lived nearer so that we could go every week! Perfect end to a perfect weekend!
