The Hill Top room in the Farmhouse at The Devonshire Arms was really charming. Richly decorated with sumptuous soft furnishings. A wonderful 4 poster bed, a comfy large tartan wool sofa and a collection of old and interesting furniture. There's an eclectic assortment of books and magazines to browse through in the room. A very good size bathroom with a... More

Stayed here for three nights in September in the farmhouse rooms. Hill Top. Lovely four poster bed, rather heigh but they assure us they're getting steps! Nice sofa at end of bed. Fantastic bathroom with bath and walk in shower. Towelling robes and nice toiletries. Breakfast served in pub. Plenty of choice, fruit, juices, cereals, yogurts and of course a... More

Pilsley is a beautiful but very small village very near to the amazing Chatsworth (it is part of the estate). Had two nights at the Devonshire Arms. Bathroom was very modern and room very comfortable. Had dinner in the restaurant one night which was very pleasant. Short drive to the bustling village of Bakewell. Short walk to Chatsworth Farm shop... More

Just returned from 4 days at Devonshire Arms. It is perfectly positioned for many amenities. The room in the farm house was outstanding. Excellent breakfast and very friendly staff ( esp Janette). We ate there every evening with no complaints. Once due to a misunderstanding we had to wait a bit longer than normal , Helen was more than generous... More

We stayed for one night in a small double, it was very pretty & the bed was oh so comfortable & the room had everything you need for a short stay. The staff were friendly & welcoming. The reason I have only given it an average score is due to the food which really lets the Inn down. I had... More

We were very pleased with the hotel: large, clean and airy room; bathroom was super; staff are friendly and informal. The evening meal was a standard gastro-pub offer, but not overpriced. The only things that let them down were poor quality muesli at breakfast - I didn't fancy the full Derbyshire - and rather insipid coffee for the same meal.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review & I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry that the muesli was disappointing as it is Alpen that we use. Sorry that you found the coffee weak. We do look forward to seeing you again. Regards Helen :-) More

Admittedly the description of the room was "small" so we can't complain too much about this. The room was well decorated and comfortable. Eating in the restaurant was good, food very nice, however there seemed to be a lot of flies hanging around for some reason. Perhaps this is a side effect of being in the country. Staff very pleasant,... More

Good afternoon & thank you for your review. Yes being a country pub means that this time of year we do have problems with flies & due to health & safety we cannot spray during food service. The room you were in is sold as a small double & people talking in the bar has'nt been a problem in the... More

Went for lunch on Saturday Chatsworth country fair weekend, it wasn't very busy and I was surprised because in previous visits we struggled. We both went for something off the specials board, I had the smoked haddock, mustard mash and poached egg. The haddock was a little dry as was the mash. The wife had scampi and chips which was...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am dissapointed that you think we have lost our 'quality feel'. We pride ourselves on providing quality fresh local produce. I do hope that next time you visit it will be for more than a drink. Regards Helen More
