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.

Service was generally ok but Helena and Sammy excelled. The food was delicious in the brasserie though we didn't get our drinks until after our starters. We had requested a table by the window for our meal back in May when the booking was made but we were told this was unavailable. Despite this there were two tables unoccupied throughout the evening. A card in the room lists complimentary items but we didn't get coffee nor biscuits til the next day after a request. Other than these issues we had a very enjoyable stay and would return.

Grrat wines and good food, but by the end of the evening tge staff started setting up breakfast around us in the annex. We were the last eating and when they started erecting tables there was so much noise we had to take our drinks into the pub. A real shame.

Had a wonderful stay accommodation clean, comfortable and a real treat. Only one negative opinion on Sunday evening, I had booked on 23rd May explaining this was a birthday treat for my partner, we were shown to our table for evening meal, so disappointing I was facing a door with a net curtain over, So for the whole evening I had this door to look at, thinking the whole restaurant must be fully booked, it wastn’t tables in middle with wonderful views empty so disappointing. The food was amazing but the service wasn’t good, understand they were short staffed but feel we shouldn’t have known, the gentleman at bar rushed off his feet but polite and attentive. Breakfast so different wonder atmosphere the girls which looking after us very professional, shown to a table near window amazing but highlighted how bad evening seating was. The breakfast outstanding best breakfast we have ever had. We have stayed at Devonshire Arms at Bolton Bridge which was wonderful but your breakfast was better that is our opinion, well done, congratulations

Thank you for a wonderful meal, although we felt the starters could have been a little more generously portioned. We both had the ham hock terrine, followed by roast beef and chicken risotto, then sticky toffee pudding and bakewell tart. The food was full of flavour and beautifully presented. We look forward to visiting you again.

Myself, my husband and two friends went for an evening meal on Saturday 4th August in the bar. We were very disappointed. The "three times" cooked chips were not three times cooked. In fact they were hard in the middle and barely cooked at all. I paid £18 for the Halibut and the menu stated that it was served with wild rice. When it arrived, the meal was more of a starter size, with a few grains of toasted wild rice on the top, and the portion of fish, although delicious, was very small. I'm afraid it didn't satisfy my appetite and we went on the the Joiners Arms when we got back to Derby for a pizza! When I mentioned that was our intention to the waitress, she didn't know what to say and just ignored me, instead of asking why. She also didn't ask how our meals were when she cleared away, as we all had complaints that we were unable to voice as we felt the staff didn't want to know. The Devonshire Arms is overpriced for pub food, and the portions are not really suffice for a normal appetite. Mostly, the food is excellent, but they need to decide whether they are a pub, or a fine dining restaurant. My friend had the trout to start and although nicely presented, the trout was barely visitble on the plate! We had one starter, 4 mains and one dessert along with one drink each, and the bill was over £100. We will not be returning. Come on Devonshire Arms, you need to step up your game and live up to your reputation!

We have had lunch here a few times and decided to book for 14 of us for a family celebration as we do enjoy the place and the food. Whilst it was an enjoyable lunch the service we had was surprisingly poor. 13 starters arrived with the14th taking several more minutes to arrive; I was asked what was missing so clearly it had been forgotten. 13 main courses arrived followed by the 14th which was stated to be ox cheek without marrow which no one had asked for so taken away and the correct dish brought out. Don't understand how this happened but surely if a special were asked for within an order for 14 people, it should be brought out first. Finally having ordered 4 bottles of wine, they failed to arrived before or during the starters despite two polite requests. When the main courses started to arrive and still no sign of the wine I had to threaten to fetch it myself before it finally arrived. Our drinks order we were told was in a queue hence the delay. Don't think this was true as the place wasn't that busy so felt like we were being fobbed off. Discussed this as we paid our £600 bill to be told that a near fatality at the sister restaurant had caused staff issues at Beeley. Nothing offered to us as a financial apology but hey ho! Conclusion is think carefully if you're a biggish group as unexpectedly they struggled as above. Food was good though!

Outstanding meal as always. My starter - artichoke soup which was delicious & the wild garlic risotto with corn feed chicken was exceptionally good. Varied choice of wines. Highly recommended

Bread and water are normally served free of charge. Not here, even a ‘dash’ of lime in the tonic is 50 pence. Music played was ‘listening music’ not suitable for background music.

Generally a very enjoyable lunch but would suggest the Kipper Paté did not need samphire as the fish was salty enough. The Bakewell Tart was slightly over-baked. The slow cooked lamb and the Halibut main courses were delicious.

Awful experience. The Service was non existent. Food at best very average. Price for a steak disgusting. No staff, and the place misses Alan Hill enormously. Greedy buggers at Chatsworth
