Quality lunch

The Devonshire Arms was listed as a participant in an August Guardian Lunch Offer. What an excellent choice we made. Both the quail starter and the lamb main course were cooked to perfection. Good service. Beer prices on the high side. Judy R Nottingham

After coming across the Devonshire on a wet and windy summers evening me and a friends decided on a stop off for a bite to eat. We were not disappointed to say the least, this pub does not have the typical pub food you'd imagine. The macaroni with pork belly belly and green beans wasn't only of good size and... More

We are prev guests here and have had good service however tonight it fell short of standards that you'd expect for the price that you pay for a meal here. Service was sluggish throughout the evening and beef fillets were served medium when asked to be rare. This was rectified. Parts of the dish were also missing. When these factors... 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

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 three courses the value was... 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
