We went here for dinner and the service was fine and welcoming. The food was ok but nothing special, reasonable value for money. The liver was over cooked but the lamb steak was pretty tasty. We thought the food might be better so maybe it's partly about expectations. It's certainly a busy place and welcoming.

We have just completed another stay at the Devonshire Arms. The setting is wonderful, a lovely little village, really close to Chatsworth and the Chatsworth Farm shop both of which are must visits. We have stayed in most of the Devonshire Hotels and they all offer the same high standards and value for money but our favorite is Pilsley where... More

This is simply a wonderful find! The Devonshire arms is an exquisite little pub/restaurant & B&B in the beautiful hamlet of Pilsley, set within the undulating hills of the breathtaking derbyshire countryside. The staff were very warm & welcoming & were always on hand to answer any queries. We were put in The Birchells room, which was very large &... More

Stayed for three nights. Lovely room and great bathroom. Very friendly and helpful staff, especially Tracey and John (from Portugal). Food was excellent and plentiful. Do try the lamb shank if it is on the specials board!

Located in the village of Pilsley and with the Chatsworth Farm shop literally just over the main road, the Devonshire Arms is a really cosy and friendly pub with the accommodation upstairs. We had the Birchills room, one of the large doubles, and it didn't disappoint, with a gorgeous comfortable bed, nice chairs, large wardrobe and a really well appointed... More

A mix of very good and frankly unacceptable. The advertised wi-fi simply doesn't work. The range is such that it only works in the bar and not at all in the bedroom or even the breakfast area. I had to resort to using the wi-fi in the darts room but even then was thrown out at 23.20 as they had... More

We stayed here for two nights in late February in the Bramley room, which was very cosy and comfortable. Decorated in soft, muted colours, with an exceptionally comfortable bed and bedding, the room looks out onto the front of the pub. The room isn't large, but is well designed and there are nice personal touches - the brownies were lovely... More

We took advantage of a £70 for two b&b deal and of course, stayed for dinner. The last time we were here it was an old, shabby pub with a great carvery but the transformation is amazing! Very tasteful decor and super friendly staff. We stayed in the Bramley room overlooking the front. Quite a small double and wouldn't want... More

We had always kept meaning to pop in to here for a Sunday lunch after being out walking as we buy a lot of food from the Chatsworth Estate farm shop just up the road who I understand supply a lot of the food for the menu. We both plumped for the roast beef dinner, which I'm pretty sure was... More
