What a quaint and charming public house. Helpful and friendly staff. Fabulous food and all reasonably priced. Our room was immaculate beautifully presented and the bathroom modern. We had a lovely stay and would recommend this to everyone.

Lovely hotel in a good position for visiting the Peak District. The room was very good as was the food. The most impressive aspect was the staff who were all friendly and professional. The only moan is that the WiFi signal in the room was erratic.

During a recent visit to the Chatsworth Estate, we stayed two nights at the DA Pilsley in one of the new Farm House rooms. The room itself was comfortable and tastefully decorated. What really surprised my was the quality and size of the en suite in the room. Not only was the en suite above average in size (enormous for... More

This hidden gem was the highlight of my trip to England. The town is picturesque with beautiful views and walks just outside the door, people friendly, food great and decor professional and fabulous. I will recommend the Devonshire Arms to everyone I know. I still can't believe it is real.

Returning for our third visit in three years we found the Devonshire Arms as welcoming and reliable as on previous visits. Comfortable rooms, a substantial breakfast, and a good selection of meals in the dining room mean that it is still our favourite place to stay when visiting this area of the world. Not much more to say, other than... More

Very disappointed. Live locally and dine here often. Visited on a Sunday evening after booking a table. Most of the tables were reserved although the bar area was quite empty with people, with us and one more table of two. The menu at the Devonshire is never extensive though always excellent food. We made our choices and were told sorry... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights following our wedding at Chatsworth House. Being only a five minute ride away, it was an ideal location for us and our respective families who also stayed. Seeking a romantic retreat, we were advised to choose the Hill Top room, which - with its charming four poster bed (and accompanying steps... More

Although the look of a normal English pub from the outside the Devonshire arms offers beautiful rooms, each decorated individually by the Duchess of Devonshire, whose family own the village itself. The pub serves good food, but the best bit is the room that you will stay in. You will sleep in possibly the best and highest four poster bed... More

Great friendly landlady and staff. All the staff made a fuss of our dog and were really welcoming. Great selection of local and more popular beers, and the food was great. A traditional pub menu but also some creative ala carte dishes. The wife said the fish and chips were some of the best she has had
