We visited The Devonshire (again) on 2nd August. It never ceases to impress. From the stunning interior, (a mix of contemporary and traditional) to the professional yet friendly service not withstanding the food which is after all the main reason people go - it couldn't be more perfect. If you want freshly prepared, locally sourced food with classic to contemporary dishes, then The Devonshire Arms is the place to go. The special starter of crab, avocado and tomato salad was divine but if you're happier with something more simple then the calves liver, or fish and chips is equally yummy! The menu is small but perfectly formed and there is always a specials board for your perusal. Special thanks to Jill the landlady for her friendly welcome and Alastair the manager for his advice, skill and expertise. They have a superb range of real ales and wines.
We travel from Leeds and since our first visit at the end of 2012 it's almost become our local. We visit every fortnight or so and we've always been extremely impressed. Also we have to mention the amazing 'Acoustic Lily' duo who were performing live (live music first Friday of the month). It really added to the atmosphere. All the locals are ultra friendly. I really can't fault it - we just need to move closer so we can visit more often.
