“ I have nothing but praise for this place. Food, service, staff, decor and atmosphere all excellent. We had Sunday lunch in the private dining area then went in the bar area for the Sunday Social where the fabulous Charlotte Branson was singing. Well done everyone. 5* all around. Can't wait to visit again. ”
“ Visited for my birthday with my family. The staff were incredibly welcoming and attentive. Lovely atmosphere. Good variety of food on the menu. I had the garlic bread, followed by the mussels, hummus and cheese croquets. The food was delicious. I will definitely be returning and would recommend it to friends. The best meal I’ve had in a long time. ”
“ Didn't know about this place until we were taken earlier this week. Will definitely be back. Quiet Tuesday evening but nice feel about the place. Kate & Alex were friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed a pleasant drink in the bar area before being taken through to the restaurant. There is a real warmth about the pub and the decorations are of the highest order. Food was excellent, particularly the glazed gammon. Highly recommended. ”
“ We had not visited the Devonshire for a long time. I checked out reviews on trip advisor and realised it had been under new ownership since August 2017. The reviews were excellent so we decided to return as it within a mile of where we live.This last week we have visited three times . We dined in the restaurant on the first occasion., lovely ambience. We chose to dine in the bar on the second occasion , relaxing and warm feel . Then last night we were in the cosy room with the log fire for the pub quiz. Add to this a warm welcome on each occasion and excellent food , what more could you want from your local . ”
“ The Dev..... Our new local that is such a little gem! Cocktails are amazing and carefully crafted, very good selection of wine also, the food is top notch (especially the homemade pizzas and new sharing plates), service is always efficient and the ambience is lovely. The wood burner and cosy seats are the best! ”
“ I think I've lost count of the amount of times I've gone to a pub that does food, ordered something and been bitterly disappointed. As well as out of pocket!
So it was great to finally go to a place that not only looks the part but can deliver on it's promise of serving great food.
The food menu choice was excellent (I was struggling to make a choice) as was the drinks menu. Fantastic reds on offer as well as a great lager and beer selection on tap.
Staff were friendly, place was spotless, great atmosphere and great food. Can't go wrong at that! Would definitely recommend this place! ”
