Out with friends from Bury on an Easter Monday jaunt and decided to go to The Wirral. I grew up in Liverpool and quite often visited the Wirral at the weekend. As we were driving along, we happened on the Devon Doorway which I remembered from my youth - about 50 years ago - so we had to go in.... More

Came here for a drink and ordered one of their more expensive wines which was shockingly bad. What was particularly disappointing is that we selected it from the wine list that highlighted their better wines!! Would hate to have tasted the more cost effective options.. Perhaps if the wines were better there would be more people enjoying a drink. It's... More

Hi JulesMWindsor! Thank you for taking the time to feedback to us, I'm really sorry our usual standards were not met this time round. The wine list is something which head office creates and is unfortunately out of our hands. I will pass on this information for when they next update the menus which they will take into consideration. I... More

We had a great evening at the Devon doorway last night! The staff are so efficient and very friendly. We had the breads to share for a starter and then I had the seabass and for dessert strawberries and frozen yoghurt while my boyfriend had the battered halloumi and then the lemon tart. It was all really yummy and we'll... More

Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Good range of ales and beers and great furnishings. A little expensive for what you get hence 4 not 5.

Popped in on a sunny afternoon, it was very busy and we had not booked but they managed to fit us in very quickly. Fantastic atmosphere with fantastic food and lovely, welcoming staff. Jonny the manager even made time to go round the tables to say hi and check everything was ok. Definitely be returning and will definitely recommend.

Such high hopes were dashed over a 2.5 hour period on Mothers Day. A queue of families left at the bar waiting for their booked tables, no apology or explanation. Sat down 30 mins later with another 30 mins before food order taken. Food was ok, but everyone was getting tired and fed up so decided to skip dessert and... More

Visited twice within a week as we enjoyed our experience as visitors to the area and took visiting family a few days later. Waiting staff are very good and very friendly and welcoming. Food good but I don't think it would be consistent, I had Brie twice, first time amazing, second time overcooked on the outside but cold in parts... More

I came here today for lunch and got the Sunday lamb roast. It was absolutely gorgeous and the service was great too. Very nice place and in a lovely area. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Came here this evening for a quiet drink. fab female singer. however, our evening was ruined by the behaviour of several children who were running round, screaming, shouting and annoying not just us but other people who wanted a bit of peace and quiet before the working week starts again. even one of the bar staff commented they were giving...
