We hadn't planned to go to the Davenport Arms but called in at the last minute and were fortunate to get a table in the restaurant as they were very busy as was the bar meals area. The choices on the menu made a refreshing change with the daily specials complimenting the menu. The freshly made scotch egg starter with... More

Really enjoyed lunch here, as did all the others. One thought it a bit dark inside and the delicious ice-cream a bit expensive, but that was being picky! Thought the menu very good, the food very good, the prices very good, and the ambience very good too. Service was delightful. Loved it. Pop across the road afterwards to the farm... More

We found this place quite by accident as we were travelling up the A34 to avoid a large traffic jam on the M6 near to Keele. We wanted a quick sandwich for lunch and what we got was amazing. We ordered baguettes which came with home prepared chips and salad. The baguettes were filled beautifully with plenty of ham (or... More

We have eaten several times at this excellent hostelry in Marton - yesterdays Bank Holiday Monday delivered one of the finest meals I have eaten. The Davenport offers a substantial choice of menu, with food cooked freshly and perhaps a little slow to exit the kitchen. However, thats a minor point because on the menu currently are two new additions... More

Love the good at the Davenport. A little more expensive than most places in town but with it for the fresh produce and home cooked food. Really good service. The quiz is a great night out.

Having been let down at short notice for a family meal for 19 people we searched with lss than a weeks notice to find a restaurant to hold this meal. The Davenport Arms came up trumps! Despite having another large party booked in, they agreed that, if we could arrive early they would accomodate us. The welcome was friendly and... More

Fantastic afternoon yet again. The food was excellent and had a great choice. I've moved away from the area but we still travel back often to enjoy the pub and fab service.

Both my wife and I frequent the Davenport Arms around three to four times a month. We have never had a bad night yet, great food with a relaxing atmosphere. Staff are always polite and very helpful, and always have time for a brief chat and a smile. Would recommend you try one of the mains on the specials menu... More

Have visited this lovely pub on two occasions and both times, my family and I have thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Friendly, attentive staff and a lovely homely feel to the place. The food is no frills yet genuine and tasty.

4 of us went to The Davenport Arms on Friday and found it rather quiet, this of course made the service pretty speedy. Great when you're hungry. Fish and chips excellent, gammon was enormous and very tasty, sea trout also very good. The steak was tough and for some reason my other half didn't comment, I imagine the management might... More
