We loved the pretty little village of Pilsley and the Devonshire Arms was everything we hoped for and more. The staff were warm, friendly and very welcoming. All of the rooms are individually decorated. We stayed in Bramley which is categorised as a small double. It was tastefully furnished with a blend of traditional and modern furniture and lots of lovely little extras like bottled water, a cafetière with quality coffee and a selection of books. The bed was really comfortable and we were impressed with the quality of the bedding. The bathroom was immaculate and again the decor was very easy on the eye.
One of the best things about staying at the Devonshire Arms is the breakfasts. I'm not usually a great lover of cooked breakfasts but the sausages and bacon from the nearby Chatsworth farm shop smelt so delicious that I couldn't resist. We ate at the Devonshire Arms on both of the nights we spent there and, although the menu is quite small, we were pleasantly surprised. All of the food is prepared on the premises and the chef makes very good use of what is available at the local farm shop. In fact you can buy some of the meat products and preserves at the Devonshire Arms. The restaurant is always busy as this is a popular foodie pub with locals, residents and visitors alike. Food is simple, hearty and comes in extremely generous portions.
The Devonshire Arms is a real home from home and makes the perfect base for anyone wishing to visit Chatsworth House (a fantastic day out) which is just down the road.
