Description: A new venture with the design of an eclectic Georgian townhouse. The Devonshire is an all-day bar and eatery in the heart of Sheffield City Centre on Devonshire Street. We are here to be enjoyed throughout the day, be it for your first coffee of the day, brunch with friends or a leisurely dinner. Our modern British menu combines local, fresh and seasonal ingredients and is not to be missed. Our gin & vermouth menu is made up of a selection of what we love and the same goes for our cocktail, beer & wine lists - in a nutshell, we have it all. Treat yourself to a late night tipple throughout the week and on weekends enjoy our resident DJ's on until 3AM, every Friday & Saturday.

Have dined at The Old House a few times when visiting Sheffield. They specialise in pies which change daily on the specials board but there are excellent other mains.

This time I had belly pork which came with excellent crackling and I asked for the mustard mash to be replaced with the hand cut chips which wasn't a problem. One of our party had game pie which was packed with meat, there are also dishes like ham hock.

Great pub atmosphere, good service, this is my favourite place to dine in Sheffield.

The Old House is our favourite place as it feels like home. Very welcoming staff, great atmosphere, great food, great music, visited by grown ups - what more do you need for a great night out.

Visited the weekend before christmas during the afternoon, comfy window seats with great atmosphere to relax. Didn't eat so cannot pass any comment on food but we were happy with choice of beers and decor etc, would happily return.

Seven of us from the office for a pre Christmas lunch.. pre ordered food as on strict time limit.
Service appalling, food not much better. PREORDERED so they knew we were coming and what we were eating. We ordered drinks and then a full 30 minute wait before any food appeared. The beef was very fatty, and the mashed carrots could have come straight out of Oliver a huge mound on the plate with no taste at all. One of our party just could not eat it at all, and the desserts were not much better the churros were actually not cooked ! The service was really very poor although there did seem to be quite a few staff about. We did get a reduction on the food but this did spoil the one day when we can relax and enjoy a lunch together before the Christmas break. Needless to say we will not be back

Hi Barbara,
We are very sorry that you felt your visit didn't live up to our usual high standards.
With regards to the wait for your food, Christmas bookings are all given a food service time of 30 minutes after their arrival to allow for late comers and getting you all seated. This is confirmed to you in your pre-arrival emails but is something that you can change should you wish to.
We have also taken on board your comments regarding the Churros and have reviewed and amended the recipe to make sure this issue doesn't happen again.
Kind regards,
The Old House Team
