It was my partners Big birthday and I booked a meal for two expecting the experience we had had before (on the website it still shows... More

Wonderful food. Chef was a fantastic host. Awesome ambience in a wonderful setting. Great idea of hosting a Sunday lunch platter.

A great Sunday Lunch at the highly recommended Devonshire Arms. We had the meat platter, everything was cooked perfectly, great big Yorkshires and service was great. We will be back.

We have eaten at the Devonshire Arms previously and have always enjoyed our food & the service, however our last visit was not so good, now under new management it is hard to see quite what they are trying to achieve, the place itself has a lovely warm welcoming feel to it but that is where it stops...there are no...

Food was fabulous but was somewhat let down by the service we almost felt like an inconvenience even though we spent £300 Such a shame as food was good we would visit so much more had the service matched
