We have not been for maybe a year as the menu and food had gone down hill but I had been informed the owners were back and so was the standard of the food. I promptly booked a table through their website which was easy, this was in the bar area as we were taking the dogs (if they can't... More

We were a party of 12 who visited this establishment for a group Sunday lunch. I have to say that we were disgusted by the attitude displayed by the female owner / manager to whom we complained about the portion sizes which we were given. We were told that "value is subjective" and suggested that we research the comparative prices... More

Thank you for you review, to clarify events for other tripadviser users I will point out the sequence of events as they happened. We served your starters just as I arrived to work, I didn't see any of the dishes that went out to your party, I asked if everyone was enjoying their food received a few nods from the... More

Eight of us went here for a pre-Christmas get together on Saturday afternoon. Two of us have been here many times, sometimes for a quick drink, or drinks and a plate of olives and bread and on 3 occasions eaten here too. We as always, found the pub welcoming, warm both in heat and staff wise. As there were 8,... More

Thank you so much for your factual and objective review, it is really uplifting for all of our staff to read the truth as opposed to a review that is based upon an indivials often biased perception of the facts. Sometimes customers , sometimes people who have never eaten at ,or been to The Dev post reviews that are purely... More

we were taken here by friends,who had eaten here before,for the Christmas menu and it was great, the restaurant is modern but welcoming, the service was good and the food excellent. The only "complaint" we had was the veg was a little too crisp but that's only our taste. We would definitely visit again. Thanks

We recently visited the Devonshire arms on a Saturday evening. It's out of the way as we live in Whirlow but had been told the food was good. Unfortunately what we hadn't been told about was the poor service and the over powering landlady! We waited nearly 30 minutes for our drinks as the waitresses were extremely thin on the... More

Thank you so much for the compliment, this is probably the nicest thing anyone has said about me on tripadviser. I am pushy and overpowering, your words not mine, because I care, I care for the future of the people who work for me and as such try to promote the business at very opportunity. It is clearly unacceptable in... More

We visited this modernised pub for a birthday treat but it turned out to be a poor evening out! We were placed in a draughty corner where we got a cold blast from the door to the kitchen each time the door swung open. The staff were poorly trained and not very aware that of our needs. On arrival I... More
