This is the second time we've stayed and eaten at Pilsley's Devonshire Arms. A beautiful find in a lovely village with exceptional customer service and beautiful food/drink. The bedrooms are very comfortable indeed as well and very dog friendly too. Would thoroughly recommend.

What a prefect end to my birthday, an absolutely wonderful dinner. Young lady that greater us a delight, and couldn’t do enough for you. Food as always full of flavour, fresh and delicious.. from wine to beer and off course Chatsworth gin. Everything was perfect.. we live in Nottingham & would have to say this was my choice for birthday dinner as every visit always meets expectations . It’s worth the journey

Would have given 5 stars all round but we ordered our Sunday lunch which took 15-20 mins to come and only arrived after someone checked to see if we had ordered it wasn't very hot and the potatoes were dry as though it had been under a heat lamp I think someone forgot having said that the taste of the food was delicious it was such a pity we will probably return but go earlier we did mention our disappointment and was told the chef was sorry

Wonderful pub, wonderful location, wonderful staff. A warm welcome from the moment you enter the door and it is one of those rare locations where everything just feels right. Special thanks to Emma F, Emma C and Tracey who were all just great.

Lovely stay. Just a short drive to Chatsworth House and opposite the Chatsworth House Farmshop. The staff are excellent and very friendly. The rooms and scenery are a great taste of picturesque English country living.

The food and service were excellent and we will definitely return - this wasn't our first visit. Our only criticism, and it was an opinion shared by myself and my wife, was that the room we were in, to the right as you enter, lacked atmosphere and was rather dull compared to the rest of the pub. The area seems something of an afterthought and isn't furnished as well as the rest of the pub, or so it seemed to us. It was also rather draughty when the door was opened, which it frequently was, being Sunday lunchtime. However, I stress the food was outstanding and the service great and we'll definitely return, as long as we can eat in the main part of the pub!!

A nice meal but couldn’t believe they charged £3.95 for a couple of slices of bread with the salad! Otherwise it was a good meal and the prices were ok

I had a beef pie which was more like a thin gravy pie, I think there were 3 pieces of Beef in half a pint of gravy any less and it could have been called a vegetarian pie. The beef was not even tender, I have had much better pies in other pubs locally. Another diner in our party had the fish pie which came with a small pot of peas, expectation would have been for a good selection of veg to have come with the meal.

We had the most wonderful lunch. The food was delicious, well cooked and served with a smile. And the wine was a perfect accompaniment. The service was exceptional, friendly and efficient without any fuss. We weren't rushed at the end of our meal. It was my friends birthday and she had a lovely day. Thank you

We had fish pie and beef curry. Not great. Fish pie was sooo hot and dried out inside. Very unpleasant. The beef in the curry was extremely chewy. We have been coming for several years. We either have a great evening and the food is very tasty or the food is not good. I am not sure what is going on. Either you are changing chefs or trying new menus which are not always good. Please try to serve food that is enjoyable. The staff are always friendly and very helpful.
