First time visit

Visited for Sunday lunch with my wife and 21 yr old daughter to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was said by the staff to be quieter than usual, which worked to our advantage as the welcome and the service were both excellent, attentive and polite, without being fussy. We all had three courses, and... read more

Went with my Girlfriend for Sunday Lunch... She had been loads of times before and spoke highly of it. I have to say our Waitress was attentive and pleasant, but the Kitchen needs a reality check on what constitutes a Sunday lunch. A small dish of veg to share between us and the tiniest puddle of Gravy did not justify... More

Thank you for your review. Sorry to discover that we did not meet your expectations. We serve hundreds of Sunday lunches every month and have taken a decision on portion size which is sufficient for most eaters and keeps waste to a minimum. Restaurants in general are criticised for the amount of food that they throw away and we are... More

Having visited several times before we decided to have a break as our last visit was not up to expectations. Unfortunately this experience was even worse! The quality of the food and service does not justify the high prices. We are perfectly willing to pay a premium for top quality which is what the Devonshire used to provide. The fact... More

Went for lunch today. The pub's in a pretty village and is a beautiful old building with a modern rustic feel - a lovely atmosphere with open fires and wood burning stoves. The bar has a good selection of beers - the Blue Moon is so tasty! The food was delicious and well presented. The owners were so friendly, helpful... More

The service was fantastic, they were extremely welcoming and had a very personal touch. It felt like they couldn't do enough to help. Then when the food came out it only got better! They catered for my celiac friend and the price wasn't bad at all for the service foood and the experience! Came for lunch, but will definitely be... More

Have just returned from a relaxing lunch with friends. We enjoyed superb ale before and with the meal and all agreed that, throughout all courses, the quality was good, if a touch bland,maybe worth 7 or 8 out of 10. What was disappointing was the quantity, particularly with the mains. They all came with just a suggestion of vegetables but... More

Went here for valentines night and really enjoyed some amazing food and great service. Everything was prepared to order and cooked perfectly, do not expect fast food as a result. If you want your food quick then head to a fast food joint, if you appreciate decent food then you won't go wrong here. Service was attentive without being in... More
