A once popular venue for a good night out spoilt by : dire beer unfreindly / untrained staff mis- managed and above all screaming kids left to run riot around the pub !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How much longer can the pub survive under the present circumstances attendance during the week has fallen to record low's because of kids running riot in the lounge. Surely the manageress must stop this (assuming she is to be found on the premises) or does she drink elsewhere !!!!!!! the staff are reluctant to say anything to the parents any complaints are treated with scorn food orders are being returned as often as the beer for the sub ...

Although I live 2 mins walk away from the 'Devon', I must admit I seldom visit. I must say though that since it has become a Sizzler establishment, it looks like it's lost a lot of it's charm. The food inside isn't great but for the price you can't argue but the biggest disappointment for me has to be after they had the place refurbished. Why oh why did they paint the outside of the building white? Look at how beautiful it looks in the picture and it really suited it's surroundings. They have taken out all of the character by painting the brickwork white. Really ruined a nice pub. I guess that's the problem with big chains, they do what they like without ...

i go to the Devonshire Arms every wednesday with some friends for the quiz night. the food is excellant ( i have the same meal every week i like it that much).

I do like a night out in the pub. I've written a few reviews on here of late on pubs but believe me I'm not a huge drinker... honest I'm not! In fact the last time I visited this pub I had a glass of coke! I'm not always so innocent but it does depend who I go out with but quite often I go out with good friends of mine and we just natter the night away and we don't need booze to have a laugh. So I do like pubs that have a nice female friendly environment, a nice selection of drinks including wine and decent food on offer and the Devon actually ticks all the right boxes in that respect. The Devonshire Arms.... Sewall ... Read the complete review
