Steakhouse | Brighton, Brighton

We were in Brighton for a couple of days to celebrate my wife's birthday, while walking through the lanes we spotted the bill board outside following our visit to the pavilion. We liked the fixed meal option but then checked out further menu options on line. We booked for the evening and were very happy with all aspects of the restaurant. Will definately recommend to others, and visit again on future visits to Brighton More

From a relaxing post-walk coffee and cake, to a very special classic dining experience in the stunningly restored formal rooms of the 18th Century mansion, our beautifully-cooked food is served at a price that is fair for everyone from producer to guest. Guests can now enjoy our new restaurant ‘Source’, a ‘farm to fork’ concept which takes advantage of the wonderful array of quality, locally-sourced meats, fish and freshly-grown produce – all from within a twenty mile radius of the House. Serving a seasonal , British menu, Source combines wonderful local produce with an unbeatable ambiance – a newly restored Grade 1 listed country house dating back to 1722, set in acres of unspoilt parkland and Sussex countryside; a peaceful and stylish experience just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of the City.More

Unfortunately the restaurant didn’t have any record of our booking when we arrived and the maitre’d was a bit offhand, but he did find us a table. It took a while before we got our requested highchair but once a waiter was assigned to our table he was absolutely lovely. The food was very good with only one exception, some profiteroles which were hard and possibly only recently thawed out. A decent family-friendly option in Brighton. More

We ate dinner first, one evening with the off chance that my international guests could sample England's fish and chips. We instantly decided to and ate the amazing food from the menu. Italien tapas, mussels that were cooked to perfection and great beer. I had already arranged to meet some friends (10 people) there on the Sunday as well for a roast, with very high expectations, which were more than exceeded! I grew up in Brighton and it is hands down, one of the best Sunday roasts I've had. We had a 9 month old with us both times and were a large booking the 2nd both time with a large booking. More

The booking was fine except we asked for a quiet table as we are both head of hearing and it was our anniversary. We were seated with two large parties and so had trouble hearing each other. Not very romantic either. The service was good and very friendly. The food was very nice except we had only just put the last mouthful of our starters in our mouths and the mains arrived! Some of the food was a little cold. The wine was lovely and we were able to have a free bottle by choosing food from the weekend treat menu. Just love their mini puds with a coffee! More

International | Brighton, Brighton

The Devil's Dyke in Brighton is a country pub oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

Whether you are planning dinner with friends or Sunday lunch with family, book a table online and enjoy some quality time with those you love the most.

The pub restaurant offers an ideal spot to rest after a day exploring the Devil's Dyke Valley, from which it got its name. According to local folklore the valley is an unfinished trench which was dug by the Devil in an attempt to flood the churches of the Weald. The valley now plays host to The Dyke Golf Club and Dyke Golf Course.

Our pub is on the beautiful Downs with great views overlooking Brighton - on a clear day can see London. It takes its name from the nearby beauty spot, a valley supposedly dug by the Devil.More
