First time visit

Visited for Sunday lunch with my wife and 21 yr old daughter to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was said by the staff to be quieter than usual, which worked to our advantage as the welcome and the service were both excellent, attentive and polite, without being fussy. We all had three courses, and... read more

My fiancée and I spent the weekend in the area and had decided on eating some “Country Pub Food” one evening. We set off driving to see what we could find, and after finding one place that was having issues with their kitchen so they weren’t serving meals, and another place having problems with their card machine so they could...

As previously this is a really excellent place to eat - the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and the food first rate. Beautifully cooked well presented and served with warmth. Highly recommended

Came here for dinner with my girlfriend on saturday night, we were both impressed by the place and the drinks and service was very good. After waiting nearly an hour for our food (the chef was in a bad mood apparently), what arrived was a big let down, bland, uninspiring and expensive for what it was, which we mentioned to... More

Went with my Girlfriend for Sunday Lunch... She had been loads of times before and spoke highly of it. I have to say our Waitress was attentive and pleasant, but the Kitchen needs a reality check on what constitutes a Sunday lunch. A small dish of veg to share between us and the tiniest puddle of Gravy did not justify... More

Thank you for your review. Sorry to discover that we did not meet your expectations. We serve hundreds of Sunday lunches every month and have taken a decision on portion size which is sufficient for most eaters and keeps waste to a minimum. Restaurants in general are criticised for the amount of food that they throw away and we are... More

Having visited several times before we decided to have a break as our last visit was not up to expectations. Unfortunately this experience was even worse! The quality of the food and service does not justify the high prices. We are perfectly willing to pay a premium for top quality which is what the Devonshire used to provide. The fact... More

Thank you for your comments. As a business, we value feedback. Honest and specific reviews allow us to improve and constantly hone our offering. This is why your comments strike me as somewhat odd. There are no specifics of complaint, merely sweeping and unsubstantiated statements. It would intrigue me, for example, to know exactly what it was about the food... More

Went for lunch today. The pub's in a pretty village and is a beautiful old building with a modern rustic feel - a lovely atmosphere with open fires and wood burning stoves. The bar has a good selection of beers - the Blue Moon is so tasty! The food was delicious and well presented. The owners were so friendly, helpful... More

The service was fantastic, they were extremely welcoming and had a very personal touch. It felt like they couldn't do enough to help. Then when the food came out it only got better! They catered for my celiac friend and the price wasn't bad at all for the service foood and the experience! Came for lunch, but will definitely be... More
