Relative cosy place if you don't mind the hard wooden benches. Good wifi & food and surprisingly pleasant bar staff. Far better than the more, uhh, regular pubs across the road showing football etc.. but the rather smelly toilets mean this place just can't get a 4/5.

Myself and three friends had an excellent meal at the Devonshire Arms on Friday. The staff and service was faultless. The food was exceptionally good value for money and despite it being a busy Friday night we were served very promptly. I had booked the table a week earlier and my thanks extend to all the staff who made our... More

I come to The Dev every once in a while, cracking pub with decent beers and great staff. Went in specifically for a roast dinner and it was excellent. It was a proper roast dinner, not something fancy or served on a bit of old wood like in some Cambridge gentrified pubs and for £10 you can't go wrong.

The devinshoire arms is welcoming pub just of mill road, on arrival you will be greeted by a very knowledgeable member of staff or a warm friendly local. The selection of beers is unquestionably one of the best selections in cambridge, the range varies from English ales to foreign beers and traditional ciders, all the beers are exceptionally well kept...

Great pub, with friendly staff and patronage. Homesick vanished the moment you step in. The food takes a while to be served. More than an a hour, still waiting.... Cheers

Being relatively new to Cambridge, the Devonshire was recommended to me by work friends. The pub has a lovely atmosphere and both the staff and regulars are friendly and warm. The food here is great, it has a really varied menu, good value for money and the portions are huge! This pub has quickly become my boozer of choice

Thank Rebecca S
Management response:

Welcome to Cambridge! We hope that the pub lived up to your friends recommendations. Be sure to try the rest of the menu, and for that matter, the rest of the beers too. Cheers, Brad. More

First time here and the pub seemed great (great selection of ales) and the staff were friendly enough, but when I ordered some food, from a menu that looked decent, I was disappointed by what I got. I went for the philly cheese hotdog and the hotdog itself was a very cheap chip shop like sausage. If your going to... More

5 stars for the beer and traditional atmosphere. Sadly the roast though plentiful was not only overcooked but also almost cold. Shame because would have otherwise been a great meal.
