Father's Day June 16th 2014 my family had booked for the 14:30 sitting. On arrival we were told that we had to wait for the table to be set which took a couple of minutes only. What happened next beggared belief. After taking our orders we waited an hour and 10 minutes for the starters to arrive Plates were cleared... More

Dear Stevie-Jim, Thank you for your review. We welcome all customer feedback. We're terribly sorry that we didn't meet your expectations on this occasion. Unfortunately, one of our chefs was taken very ill that morning and, as such, was unable to be on the premises. We would love for you come to back to our pub and enjoy the true... More

While on a lovely walk we came across this pub, had a very warm welcome from a polite young lady who said our little dog was able to come in on the tiled area. Menus arrived quickly food and drink was ordered and arrived in good time. We mainly had sandwiches which came with chips and side salad all the... More

Reading the previous review of this place I was looking forward to our Sunday lunch visit. What a let down. It started with my pint of beer being poured onto my leg as it was brought to the table. My roast beef consisted of 2 extremely small pieces, which it was clear had been cooked and then reheated. My wife's... More

Dear Sir , Thank you for your review about your lunch last Sunday. I was working on the day in question and the sequence of events that my staff and I experienced differ widely from your version of events. Firstly, beer was not poured down your leg , I personally delivered the drinks to your table and whilst doing so... More

We hadn't dined at the Devonshire for a few years, & we've been missing out on excellent food & wine. The staff are extremely welcoming & the country pub setting sets the scene for a great evening. We tried the local wine from Renishaw & we weren't disappointed. The food was as good as we have had in the Sheffield... More

We have visited this restaurant so many times it's difficult to count. We found it on Twitter and were enchanted with the setting and the food from the outset (before it changed hands). We have been for many family meals, and as a couple we have visited in evenings and lunchtimes. Our most recent visit for Sunday lunch as a... More

We live in Middle Handley, so the Devonshire Arms is a great Pub/Restaurant within walking distance.. We visited for a meal last Saturday, and again for the "Butchers" night on Wednesday.. Both meals were excellent. Service was good, and the atmosphere good. A good wine list, with excellent wines. Looking forward to the "Abba" night in June. But we will... More

A large group arranged to meet up at the Devonshire Arms for a drink and a bite to eat. I was slightly concerned having read some of the other reviews that the portions would not be big enough to satisfy the appetites of the men ! I couldn't have been more wrong the food was fabulous, cooked to perfection and... More

The second time we've been to the Devonshire and consider it a place well worth returning to. We chose to come to celebrate a birthday. Relaxed and cheerful place with friendly staff but not over so. The atmosphere may be relaxed but the kitchen certainly isn't, being sharp and accurate with its flavours and presentation. We liked the emphasis on... More
