A couple of weeks ago we enjoyed a very good evening meal at The Devonshire Arms in Middle Handley, near Sheffield. Five of us took a friendly round table and enjoyed a bottle of Prosecco whilst we were selecting our various dishes from the menu. At £24 per person for two courses or £28 for... read more

We hadn't eaten here for ages due to previous bad experience, but decided to give it another try as the food is always good. Things hadn't changed much. The food is still good, but the service is still bad. The girl who served us thought it was appropriate to walk around all night with socks and no shoes on. When... More

Went here with a group of mates. Excellent beer, I tried a couple of them and settled on the one named after the pub. Was a bit disappointed in the menu - no tapas - which I was looking forward to. But the pannini (correctly pannino!!) - was exactly right - well filled and tasty. It was also accompanied by... More

We had a enjoyable meal. However I would have liked a few more choices on the menu. I am not a fussy eater but did feel that there was a limited selection. That said the food that we had was really enjoyable and the staff were very friendly.

Been here once before and loved the food, this time round not so much.. It has a bit of a reputation for being over priced but I remember last time (3 years ago?) being more than happy to pay the price. When we returned yesterday I was excited to try the new menu. I knew the portions would be small... More

having driven past many times and wondered what it was like I was not disappointed when I finally ate there. the food was very good and so was the ambiance. Initially on arrival we wondered if we had done the right thing as the three front of house staff did not know what the other was doing, we sat outside... More

Fantastic picturesque spot with very attentive and knowledgeable staff who helped deliver a wonderful experience The menu had a wide choice of items from £5-20. We decided to go for the 3 course...

I have visited the Devonshire many times and had many a nice meal there. I don't know if it has changed hands but the lady who seems to be in charge isn't at all pleasant. Went for a Sunday lunch with my dad, the beef was full of sinew and inedible really so we mentioned this to the waitress. She... More

Having eaten at the Devonshire recently (and being impressed), we booked again on the spur of the moment last Saturday night for dinner. The staff were very accommodating and friendly, with just the right level of interaction. They had a good level of knowledge with regards to the menu and bar, and went out of their way to be helpful.... More
