Used to be my 'go to' for fish and chips but now...

When I first discovered this place it was my 'go to' for fish and chips to the point that anytime that my friends and I were within half an hour away we'd beeline it to Shepherdstown. A few visits where service was 'meh', portion sizes dropped AND prices increased have now meant that I'll consider... read more

The fish and chips are excellent! The chicken wings are great. They also have a happy hour and weekly food and drink specials, which is unprecedented in Shepherdstown. However, this is where the honeymoon stops. The place is absolutely filthy and the service is deplorable. It has the ambiance of a basement bar in a rundown fraternity house. The staff... More

Most awful experience I've ever had. The good was overall ok, I had a small issue with my burger, it was just not good way over cooked. I shared this with the waiter/bartender and he started being very very rude while offering 25% off the burger I was not going to eat. (A $2 discount) My wife told him he... More

Came up for a day trip and this restaurant was highly recommended . So glad we went! When I go to a British pub I make my evaluation on how they prepare fish and chips . These surpassed my expectations and I would come here again for that dish alone. The batter was perfectly seasoned and the fish was fried... More

cold drinks and great burgers, make sure you get the cheese fries as well. I got a bacon egg and cheese burger. It was wonderful, if its a nice day make sure you grab a seat in the garden area. Very pretty and relaxing.

If you want a fun experience in Shepherdstown, go to the Devonshire Arms. Talk to Joe the bartender. There's a dog named Nishka who comes in daily and sits at the bar....very polite.

Went in and waited for about 10 minutes at the bar and the bartender was working on kegs and never bothered to even acknowledge us.

My husband and I were excited to try a real British pub. We were hoping it could become a regular for us. When we arrived, the bar was very noisy . If the food had been good, we could have tolerated that. We ordered the squash soup, which was brought to us, microwaved, warm in parts, cold in others. I... More

Spur of the moment early dinner date with the wife. Three people at the bar and us. Ordered the Cornish Pasty and Salad and the wife had the Cottage Pie. Ordered a side of fries as an app because we forgot that the apps are listed on the beer list holder rather than in the menu. Oh well. As we... More

The food & staff were wonderful. We loved the Devonshire's local ambiance in a town that caters mostly to college students and tourists. You may have to be creative to find parking or just walk a block or two, but it's worth it.
