Called in here on our visit to Sheffield last week, being a real ale drinker it was nice to see the Devonshire Arms had a guest real ale on offer. Only small but seemed it had its own regulars, so a warm pub to go to.

This is a beautiful pub. I had the most delicious spinach and nutmeg soup. The rest of the menu looked amazing but was out of my price range.

We thought the whole place looked lovely and were very impressed and were planning bringing guests here and even possible Christmas parties Sadly we waited such an unreasonable long time for our meal, it spoilt the evening. In fact the table next to us also had the same complaint. This is my second visit. My first visit the service was... More

The Devonshire Arms is tucked discreetly away in this pretty Derbyshire village. We called in on a quiet sunny afternoon and what a delight it turned out to be. Walking in there's a certain wow factor. The all-day menu tells you all you need to know about the Devonshire's culinary ambitions. We had an enjoyable lunch and the friendly barmaid... More

Decided to eat in as it was so hot!!! Extremely well looked after by the owner. Combo starter as were starving. Had 3 different types of salad: Prawn and... More

I have visited the Devonshire arms 3 times now and have yet to be disappointed. It has a pretty country pub decor and has quite a laid back atmosphere. The staff seem friendly enough too. My only small concern about the decor is that the seating isn't the most comfortable and one occasion, myself and my partner were sat beside... More

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
