We Just love this establishment whether it be for a spot of light lunch (always superb) or a flute of champagne for my wife and pint of an excellent draught beer or two in front of one of the roaring coal or log fires , of course for dinner (amazing choices on the menu always locally founded then cooked and...

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

A group of 10 of us visited the Devonshire Arms for a our (early) Christmas Meal. We were warmly greeted with a glass of home made mulled wine which was delicious. The ambience was wonderful and the staff were extremely courteous and helpful. The food was very very good, amazing starters, succulent Turkey main ( especially the roasties) followed by... 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

It was midweek Thurs and not very busy however we were quite bemused when it took 50 mins for our starter to arrive which was a smaller portion... More

This is a gem of a restaurant set in the countryside off the road between Chesterfield and Eckington. This restarant is off the beaten track but well worth seaking out. It is on a bus route from Chesterield so you do not need a car to get there. The menu is quite small but gives enough choice to meet most... More

A great place for a nice lunch or a special outing. The food is delicious. The beer and wine lovely too. Friendly staff, comfortable bar and restaurant areas. My French friends decided it was better than eating in France! :-)

As soon as we walked in the Devonshire Arms my wife and I had a good feeling about the place. Being a Tuesday lunch time we didn't know how busy it would be, but there were several other tables already dining. We had a very pleasant discussion about the beer I chose, and was told about the brewery it came... More
