I'm vegan and chose Zizzi's because they have a vegan menu. The food was great - the vegan option being really thoughtful and delicious and the other pizzas and pasta very good. But it's the service that makes the difference, the manager was exceptional spending time talking about other vegan establishments in Brighton and making us feel so welcome. A great place for an evening meal. More

The food was amazing. Really well-thought menu with interesting flavour combinations - although if you have any allergies I strongly recommend you let the waiting staff know. The pork belly with apple and mustard potatoes was gorgeous, and I have only had that mix at my mum's, never in a restaurant so this is comfort food for me. The atmosphere is very cosy with the fireplace in the center, and the staff were very attentive. It is a bit expensive but I would definitely come back to this restaurant for special occasions. More

Unfortunately the reservation by Opentable wasn’t received but luckily there was one table left given several parties and festive diners!!!!! There seems to be an ongoing communication problem and we were asked to forward on our e-mail reservation to the Swallows from Opentable. Given we had travelled by taxi we almost had a disastrous evening!!!!!!!!! More

Open Table did not give the restaurant our reservation and so they were not expecting us, but were wonderful to accommodate us on a fully booked, busy Saturday evening. CAREFUL!! DON'T USE OPEN TABLE FOR THIS RESTAURANT. Even though they give you a confirmation number, you will not have a reservation. 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

We have visited the restaurant for a French-themed dinner and it delivered up to our expectations the food was good, with decent sized portions. The food was more of a gastro pub quality (definitely not Michelin starred level), but for the price and combined a good service it still presents an excellent value. More

I took my wife for a romantic meal in a historic hotel with fine food. The food is delicious and properly prepared. The ambience is nice to look at and the lighting subdued for our romantic date. It's worth a trip to the toilet to go downstars on the iron spiral staircase end look into the wine celler. More

My husband and I were looking for somewhere relaxed but special for my birthday dinner. We don't get to go out much because of the kids so this needed to be good. And Grow40 was perfect! service was incredible. Cocktails were deeeelicious. Dinner was lush too. I'd describe it as extremely well cooked simple food. No fush, just great ingredients with great taster. I had scallops with pea puree and the puree was incredible! Followed by sea bass with broccoli and an olive/tomato chunky salsa type thing. Also lush. Def recommend. It was the perfect start to our evening before strolling through town for a few after dinner drinks. More

We arrived at the time of our booking on Mother's Day but Open Table had not sent the booking to the Old Stables, however despite being extremely busy they managed to accommodate us. The menu had several choices and the food quality was of a high standard. The wine list was rather limited and our first few choices were unavailable. The staff were very attentive and couldn't do enough to help. We would definitely go back as we really enjoyed the experience. 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
