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.

Foundations are laid for the Visitor Information kiosk

Wet concrete is being poured into the foundations of the new visitor information kiosk. This kiosk, which will also serve as a secondary catering outlet at the Devil's Punch Bowl café will be a new focal area for our visitors. All being well, the building will be open by late spring.
