John & Cath Naylor, October 2023

The table was reserved in the side area off the main bar big enough for 10 / 12 very comfortably and almost like a private dinner serviced room. Wasn’t expecting to be out of the main sitting areas, an unexpected bonus for a Family gathering.

The booking process could not have been more friendly and welcoming on the phone, gave us reassurance. The pub location – Just on the A6 in Belper, can’t miss it, large car park handy as raining and didn’t have to walk there. The food was superb, really was, traditional and generous portioned perfectly cooked roast beef, Pork and wish and chips for the grandchildren, all presented at same time… not always the case when kitchens are busy. The service – friendly, smiling attentive staff all focused on 100% customer service, felt well cared for throughout. The cost – subjective I know but we all felt we had excellent value for money, right pricing where you don’t feel you’ve been overcharged for the menu and drinks we enjoyed.

I’ve chosen to write the above solely as when your expectations are exceeded at every level it should be acknowledged for the team delivering it and for anyone considering a visit – give it a try…

All the best the Devonshire , they deserve it
