Great food

We visited the weekend before Christmas, as we have been on numerous previous occasions and the food has always been to a high standard. The menu had a few items which they didn't have, but we were informed they had been let down by a supplier. We all ordered the roast fillet of beef, but were... read more

I realise that booking for a meal on Christmas Eve may have been foolhardy, and for that I hold up my hand. I will not go into the host of points because it's taken me until now to come to terms with the disappoint that I felt on the night. Needless to say, after years of maybe infrequent visits and...

We had booked a table at 8pm on New Years Eve for four people and was looking forward to a fabulous evening. The food on previous visits had been of a very high standard. We were not seated until 8.30 which didn't bode well (although we expected it to busy). There was only one person serving food who was clearly... More

we arrived on a complete offchance looking for a table for two, and was promptly shown to a table, right next to the only other occupied table in the restaurant. The menu was exclusively a Christmas menu, but there are 4 choices in each section starters, mains and desserts, the starters tasted nice but did show the places leaning to... More

I rarely do food reviews on tripadvisor but really felt like this place deserved to be shouted about. I am fairly new to the area and haven't really ventured out of Sheffield city centre, so when I heard my colleague at talking about The Devonshire Arms I thought I would give it a go. With it only being a 20... More
