Described by Constable as "the grandest view in the world"-Amazing vantage point-great spot for watching paragliders and kiters soaring down the steep hillside on a summer's weekend. Admire the deep gorge, allegedly dug out by the Devil to form the longest gorge (over a mile) to drown parishioners . Wonderful woodland walks and nature reserve, topped by great pub food... More

The main car park looks out over a steep drop when you often you can see kites being flown and hand gliders. These can be watched from your car or from the Restaurant which serves food to... More

A must to visit and the walks and views are amazing. Early evening in the summer time is a great time to visit. A regular bus service goes there and a pub is right on the doorstep.

Came for a sandwich lunch on a cold October day. Excellent service, terrific sandwiches, friendly staff and a wonderful view. Will certainly come back for a full meal.

If visiting the south coast of England then you must go to the Devil's Dyke. Wonderful views across the South Downs with a nice pub for somewhere to eat. Gets very windy up there so be sure to wrap up warm especially during the winter!

Get your walking boots on and visit the Devil's Dyke. An amazing gorge cut into the hillside. Car park up the top and a pub - What's not to like?

This is one of our favourite restaurants, about 5 miles from Brighton on the South Downs. The views are great and we've had many lovely meals there. Sunday lunch beef to share was especially good.

I noticed a number of reviewers here seem to keener on reviewing the pub (if they could get table or not etc) at the top of Devils Dyke than the actually dyke itself this a shame, though I am sure most visits to dyke includes a quick drink at the pub. The dyke a great sweeping slowly accending (but become... More
