The Devonshire Arms

The Devonshire Arms

A lively English village with a well-kept green. The inn, 400 years old, was once a hunting lodge for the Dukes of Devonshire; a rather smart pillared porch survives at the front. These days open-plan interiors are warmly contemporary with high ceilings, blond floorboards and fresh flowers everywhere.

Hop onto brown leather stools at the bar and order a pint of Moor Revival, or sink into sofas in front of the fire and crack open a bottle of wine. In summer, life spills onto the terrace at the front, the courtyard at the back and the lawned garden beyond. The hosts are engaging and the food’s a joy; choose from ploughman’s with homemade chutney or game burger and chips, linger over lamb rump with roast vegetables and puy lentils, dive into dark chocolate fondant. Then walk off your indulgence in style.
