About The Devonshire Arms Pilsley
The Devonshire Arms at Pilsley is a traditional English inn specialising in great food, excellent ales and comfy rooms.
The food on offer in the dining is a very sophisticated take pub fare. Chef Patron Alan Hill sources local ingredients, most of which come from the Chatsworth Estate itself. The drinks on offer in the pub include great local ales on tap, including Chatsworth Gold.
A little disappointed that everything was great but 2 of our meals were basically under seasoned and lacking flavour. The other 2 meals the beef Sunday lunch were fine but frankly the beef curry and belly pork just had no taste. Shame because everything else was great,
Lovely meal great service thanks
good night out
Staff were excellent. My daughter-in-law has to eat gluten free and our waitress and the chef really went the extra mile to make sure she had an enjoyable meal.
We felt very welcome by the lovely staff who served us at our table.
Please have quicker service and do answer the reception phone sometimes!
Perfect pub for a post dog walk at Chatsworth. Gorgeous interior, friendly staff and great food
Love the staff, great fun.
Had a great time here New Year’s Eve.Beautiful place everyone friendly and very welcoming.Great food and drinks😀we will be back.
This was our 2nd new years eve meal with friends and our four legged pooch. Great food, friendly staff and wonderful service. Easy booking and confirmation
We enjoyed our stay here. Room was clean, with lovely biscuits and fudge and everything we needed for our overnight stay. Staff were very friendly and the service was excellent.
3 vegan curry’s - all rice extremely cool dry and clumped. Veg in curry utterly under cooked. 2 meals hardly touched so it should have been an indication. Working in a cafe myself it’s hard to believe how they passed inspection before leaving the kitchen. Birthday meal so very disappointed. Staff lovely and surroundings but sadly won’t be making the journey to come again
Quality food. Friendly staff. Speedy service, without feeling rushed.
Great staff (Claire).. Room was very cold sat near the door. Room to the right of the bar didn’t have any atmosphere so would have preferred to sit in the bar area or room behind. Enjoyed our visit and Claire the waitress was fab!! Great service from all the staff. Food could have been warmer. Different veg came out for different tables. Ours looked like the tail end of a service. The tables after us seemed to get much better looking plates of food. Better choice of veg and more food on plate. Will visit again in the summer.
Met with family for food between Christmas and New Year. Was made very welcome as soon as soon as we entered. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Compliments to the kitchen team for producing very nice food especially the Death by chocolate bread and butter pudding. Looking forward to our next visit.
The furniture, floors and decor are looking very tired. The table we had had a metal bar on one side making it uncomfortable to put your legs under. Food was very good. Service was erratic and seemed a little disorganised with some staff appearing quite stressed.
Hubby said the mixed grill was the best he’d had! The Xmas fayre was lovely too. Shame we didn’t have room for a dessert as their crumbles are amazing!
The food was of good quality apart from the fish pie which was a little dry. The staff are cheerful. The decor is outstanding. The loos are very clean. A problem which we have, every time that we book, is that it is very difficult to get through on the phone. When asking for a window table, or one near the fire, we get pressurised into having a table in the corner near the kitchen door, where there is a lot of noise and disturbance. A couple of times, we have been told that the front room is only for people with dogs. Rather naughtily, we have claimed to have a dog at the time of booking, so as to get a table in the front room. Nevertheless, we recommend this pub as a reliable place to which to take guests.
Lovely pub. Great starter. Poor main, over cooked, not great.
We returned to The Devonshire Arms having had two excellent portions of takeaway fish & chips. Yesterday’s restaurant serving was second best. My husband also reported that some of the fruit in his crumble was cold. Perhaps we should have complained at the time. We won’t be returning or be able to recommend this restaurant.
Best steak and ale pie I have ever had! My niece had the burger which was also excellent. Portion sizes are very generous and great value for money. Would highly recommend.
Excellent food, well cooked and good service.
Excellent food with friendly efficient service. Just perfect. Thank you!
Another very enjoyable meal with delicious food and Tracy's excellent humour and service. Would recommend it to anyone.
