“Excellent, friendly place to eat in the heart of Hartington!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We recently stayed in a local B&B in Hartington, and the Devonshire Arms was just round the corner from our accommodation - very handy in the wet and windy weather! Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to phone and book a table in advance - and it was probably just as well that we did. It was a Sunday evening and the lounge dining area was fully occupied. It is easy to see why the pub is a popular choice for eating out. The menu offers a good selection to cater for most tastes (and budgets) and, after opting to eat there again on the following evening, we found that everything our group chose really was very good indeed. The service was very friendly and, considering how busy they were, the food was delivered quickly on both evenings. We would certainly have no hesitation in calling here again when we're next in Hartington.

“A little bit of old England”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

A warm welcome followed by a pleasant drink, a timely served meal cooked to perfection.
There is a clear reason why this public house is busy.

“Stunning food and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The owner fitted us in for an evening meal on his busiest night. The lamb fell off the bone and sirloin steak was cooked to perfection. A real find for us.

“Great welcome, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

As the title says... Highly recommended. Go there when you're hungry! The portions were good and everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. I'd go back next time.
