good for an early dinner before a play

We were looking for a place to eat an early dinner since our evening play began at 6pm and the highly rated restaurants didn’t open before 5pm. Chanced upon the Devonshire Arms, which was a local hangout but fairly empty at 4:30. We had the fish and chips and the French dip. Both were very good... read more

Disappointing lunch. Having travelled extensively in The UK I was looking forward to a traditional English tea. However, that needs 24 hour notice. So went with a cream tea. Tea was barely warm, scones were ok but no butter and less than a tablespoon of clotted cream for 2 scones. Fish and chips were edible but the Welsh rarebit was... More

I'm in disbelief as to how this establishment is still in business. I have never dined in a filthier restaurant. As soon as our food arrived there was hair in it. It was all down hill from there. We could have made a full cat by the end of the meal with the rest we found. We just stopped eating.... More

I like the food here, and the art, but the bar crowd has taken over and is not managed at all. Our table became a target for some rowdies and I won't go back.

I stopped by the Devonshire as I was passing through West Virginia and thought I would stop by Shepherdstown which I lived at briefly when I was a kid. I enjoyed one of the best orders of fish and chips that I've had in a very long time in addition to some quality local beers. More than anything else though,... More

I LOVE this place!! It really feels like a home away from home. The entire staff is so welcoming and accomodating, the food is always excellent, the prices are reasonable. The English pub grub is right on, and such a welcome treat. Try the Guinness bangers!! This is also the most convenient place to eat if you're catching a show... 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.
