About Devonshire Arms Beeley

Chef-patron Alan Hill uses his flair and expertise to create a menu offering a delightful choice of seasonal dishes, making full use of local produce such as Chatsworth Estate venison and pheasant. Fresh and imaginative vegetable accompaniments and vegetarian dishes showcase the produce of the kitchen garden and other harvests obtained by ‘Beeley barter’, whereby local allotment holders trade fresh seasonal vegetables for pints in the bar.

The main bar area really showcases the character of our gorgeous stone built 18th century Inn. The ceilings still display the original black beams, flagstones worn down over the years adorn the floors and the large open fire continues to warm guests to the Inn.

The Brasserie is a bright and spacious dining area located within the main Inn that can also be used as a private function space. Recently refurbished under the expert eye of The Duchess of Devonshire The Brasserie now boasts a traditional setting with modern décor which has created a delightful restaurant and function space for up to 50 people.

Delicious food in a relaxed setting, ideal for a night away in the peaks... just wish we lived closer so we could pop in regularly!

trout with purple broccoli and sorrel mayo was gorgeous. Husband had ox cheek pie, which was again lovely. Puds were not quite so good. My Bakewell was very sweet and would have been nicer warmed. Very satisfied however overall, Thank you.

What has happened very poor choice of menu told no steak was available so chose lamb at £21. Per head and expected a nice meal. No fresh veg offered and when I asked where the potatoes were was told under the lamb. Discovered a tiny piece of what looked like left over mash fried up into a disc. Now I am well travelled and eat out frequently and have used the Devonshire for the past three years for a family meeting. You used to have a very extensive menu with lots of choice the latest offering was very poor. I am sorry to say for us it’s time for a change and would not recommend you and it is certainly not value for money.

Excellent location and lovely room, with attention to detail and tasteful decoration. The food was suburb and service attentive, but perhaps slightly friendlier at breakfast than dinner. The layout of the bar and brassiere was thoughtfully done, making good use of the space, however we preferred eating in the brassiere extension to the bar.

We moved to the area recently and promised ourselves we would visit. This was our first time. The food, ever course was sublime. Crab starter, pea soup, monkfish tail... really all were excellent. I ordered without looking at the prices but was pleasantly surprised at the bill. Sunday lunch is our next plan and we shall become frequent visitors. We are a single mum and daughter, not a couple and my 7 year old loved it too, staff made her very welcome and didnt mind her questions and requests at all. Gorgeous setting in the village too and the dining room was stunning. Really were very impressed indeed

As ever, wonderful food, good choice of wines & beers, service very good & super atmosphere. Also like that we can book online with added requests such as denoting our favourite table & that we have well-behaved dogs. Lovely staff, always welcoming. One of our favourite eating places.

Whilst on holiday in Buxton and as a Mother's Day treat we booked The Devonshire Arms for our lunch. Everything was thoroughly enjoyable and would visit again if in the area.

The overall experience of staying at the Devonshire Arms was great, but the evening meal could definitely have been better. The menu is far too meat based, with not enough alternatives for people who would rather choose a vegetarian or plant based option. I'm vegetarian but I didn't choose the veggie main course as it appeared to contain no protein at all, and the halloumi option that I did choose was just a pile of halloumi with sauce and a few pomegranate seeds. No other vegetables came with the meals, and it would have been helpful if the serving staff could have given advice on that as we would have ordered side dishes. Many people nowadays are reducing their meat intake and will choose a veggie or vegan option, but they can't if it's not available.

delighted I had opportunity to feedback directly, else it is recourse to Tripadvisor (which before you decry it, I wouldn't have booked with you at all without - I searched best pubs with views in Peaks and we walked to Chatsworth and back for an hour before dinner) CHIPS? what can I say. A higher than average pub that can't cook triple-cooked chips? I know the reasoning on the night was "they were the wrong sort of potatoes" and I know ultimately I wasn't charged - hence why taking time to genuinely feed back to you as a business and not to whole world via Tripadvisor. I suspect you'd run out of t-cooked chips which will have be pre-prepared and par-boiled and possible even first frying for effective kitchen management - big run on chips and later customers. I also suspect the only potatoes you had left were your jacket spuds and they were prep'd and single-fried. This assumes the diner can't tell the difference. Just replace my cod with haddock? would you? not if you are offering rosette dining and not without explaining the difference/swap. It is great when we run out of things, shows folks were about to make a great choice and should come back to experience the best you have, but don't pass off second best? We saw the fish and chips of others and that drew one (and nearly two) to the dish, there was a big difference. I came because of your locality to Chatsworth, apparent views (of which there are actually none from the pub but a lovely village nonetheless). I had seen the rating on Tripadvisor but this pertain to your hotel/rooms. The restaurant reviews, you are getting slammed and possible rightly so? You are not answering them - even to apologise or comment or correct. I can say very clearly had I seen your reviews first I wouldn't have dined with you. All managers should know your reviews day to day and consider it - of course don't take all of it to heart and customers are often idiots (you may feel I am - but at least only you will know the above and not anyone looking at T-A). I would like to thank you for removing the cost of the poor meal and hope my comments are in some way useful many good things (and perhaps should have started with those) STP beautiful, risotto starter lovely, ox cheek nice (perhaps need slightly little more veg to fill out the dish), duck perfect.

The service could’ve been better. When we arrived in the pub we announced that we were there for a table that we’d pre booked. The barman served us drinks but then we weren’t shown to our table, so we made our own way there and it took a while before a staff member came over and gave us menus. Customer service could’ve been better and some staff members seemed unenthusiastic. That said, the food was fantastic. A great choice and very tasty. The room was super. Clean, stylishly decorated and well equipped. Would recommend.
