A very nice, welcoming country pub. There is a good menu and the food is always well prepared. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Slightly disappointed with the originality on the choice of mains for evening meal under the traditional pub classics heading. Starters were amazing as was the following mornings breakfast. Vegetarian choice also very good. The room was beautiful and comfortable and all the staff courteous and helpful. Would recommend. Thank you

The beef, while tender, contained a lot of inedible fat and sinew. The menus were rather tired looking and grubby.

Really enjoyed our visit, the four poster rooms in the farm house are lovely. We had a couple of minor issues but these were dealt with in a very professional manor by the staff on duty and l would have no hesitation in recommending a stay at the Devonshire Arms.

We come to Chatsworth shows often and always wanted to stay over. This was a gift from family members and a lovely experience and we wouldn’t hesitate in staying here again. The room was furnished really nicely, lovely fluffy towels and bathroom robes a nice extra, everywhere spotless. The only negative comment would be that the thermostat on the shower could have been a little higher.

Fantastic stay, staff were brilliant as was the food and drink selection. tea and coffee and asorted treats in the room were brilliant! My only complaint is that our room (Redway) was very light, there was a security light outside that shines straight through the doors.

Our family party of 6 had our first Christmas Day lunch out at the Devonshire Arms whilst on holiday and we were really happy with the whole experience. The restaurant and tables were decorated beautifully and the atmosphere was very calm, friendly and festive. The food was very good and plentiful. We all had traditional turkey dinner although other options were available (to be chosen in advance). It was a great way to spend our Christmas Day lunch and we all felt very spoilt and relaxed. Thank you.

Easy decision to give all round 5-star rating. Staff very friendly and attentive, good food and decent range of beers and wines, accommodation was brilliant with additional nice touches (Fudge, Box of Biscuits, Sparkling Water, etc.) and even steps to assist you to climb onto the antique four-poster if you were a little short in the leg department ! - superb.

Although we'd booked initially for a 7.00pm evening meal, we were asked by email to switch to 6.45. We duly complied. Nevertheless we still sat without any food until just before 7.45pm! Staff always extremely pleasant. Felt evening food menu was somewhat limited. Steak was absolutely excellent! Interestingly after our TWO night stay, we were only presented on departure with a bill for a ONE night stay!!! If we had left at that point I would have saved myself £169.00!!! Instead I pointed out the errore and it was eventually corrected. If anyone DOES look at these reviews, it would be interesting if someone from customer relations/management were to email me offerering in view of my honesty a better discount than the normal should we chose to return for a second vist.
