I visited the Devonshire last week, meeting a friend who was staying nearby. By the time we got round to ordering food, a party of over 30 people were seated waiting for their meals and we were told that the kitchen wouldn't be able to...More

Staff are rushed, confused and rude. Food was meant to be hot, but was barely warm. Waited nearly 45 minutes for food to arrive, after ordering. Four of us ate, and our meals were not served together

On our back street walk we came across this pub bustling with people in the front garden area. Inside at around 5..30pm more young overseas tourist groups came in. And it also seems to attract a lot of our American friends from across the pond....More

Ambience is warm and inviting. Service friendly and prompt. Orders are taken at the bar, but tables are served by staff for remainder of meal. Food was delicious! Prices reasonable.

We went in on a Sunday and we both ordered the 28 day aged roast and it was absolutely delightful. The food came out quickly and the service was excellent. It was my favorite meal during my 9 day trip to Europe. The staff was...More

Great spot to stop for beer and food. Get here after 5pm and you will be standing. The food is good. If your in the mood for a burger this is the place to go.

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Description
South Kensington's cosiest pub. Just a stones throw from the boutique-lined streets of South Kensington, The Devonshire Arms has rustic character and vintage style in equal measure. Step inside to discover an unsurpassable range of speciality drinks, all served with a dash of idiosyncratic charm and an eclectically furnished interior that exudes a subtle air of stately-home grandeur, an apt setting for sipping on a crisp New Zealand Pinot G or treating yourself to one of our home-cooked Sunday roasts. The pub garden has ample tables that catch the sun with heating and jumbo umbrellas for when the British weather catches you off guard!
