Devonshire Arms at Pilsley

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2010

This is a very good option if you don't want to pay the slightly inflated price of its cousin in Beeley, where we have stayed a few times. Got a great offer to come in the first month so thought that we would give it a go. So it is very clean and contemporary, our room ( Fold) was a little small - great for overnight but don't plan on spending much time in it. Excellent bathroom and fantastic shower. They forgot the included champers, ( but I have experienced that before at Beeley - I don't think the Central Reservations office have a great attention to detail - they also sent me the wrong confirmation! Too much cutting and pasting I think) Breakfast was very good - great ingredients from the Chatsworth Farm shop but I have never seen so little fruit on a plate to share between 4! Finally our room was over the car park and here is the rub....three deliveries between 5.30am and 7.00am made for a very disturbed night.....come on Devonshire Arms you can do better than that!

My wife and I happened to be the very first guests to stay here, and so I am pleased to be the first to comment on this establishment on Tripadvisor. Staying for 2 nights at this country pub with rooms was an extremely enjoyable experience - the newly refurbished room was furnished to a high standard and very comfortable, but the best aspect of our stay was the staff. Helpful, courteous and accomodating, they went that extra mile to please. Manager Lee and his assistant, 'grandma' Christine, were constantly busy getting this new venture off the ground but still found time to attend to guests' needs with efficiency and good humour, and chef Alan proved that simple food can be of the highest quality if the ingredients and preparation are of the best, whether on the set menu or catering for my wife's fussy vegetarian diet. You simply must try his Steak and Kidney Pudding!
If you are looking for an overnight stay or short break in this beautiful part of the country then I would highly recommend this inn - not five star luxury but comfortable, spotlessly clean, great food and wonderful service.
