Building works at the Devil's Punch Bowl café

The café at Hindhead Commons and the Devil's Punch Bowl is a favourite spot for many people to meet friends and to stop off at after a dog walk, bike ride or leisurely stroll to enjoy the amazing scenery the area has to offer.

It's however getting a bit tired and our toilet facilties are in need of a refresh. Beginning at the end of November 2017, we're embarking on a programme of works to refresh and enlarge our toilet block, redecorate the café and build a purpose-built catering and visitor information kiosk.

Scroll down to follow our timeline of works and to see how the project is progressing.

Keep in touch - we'd love to hear your thoughts. You can email us or follow us on our facebook page.
