* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

The less formal option at this grand ducal hotel also benefits from a terrace on sunny days with sweeping views of the Dales. Limited but good feedback last year on its wide-ranging and affordable brasserie menus: fairly standard fare, bolstered by a range of steaks and above-par cheeses. There’s a cut-down wine list, but the full selection is also available if the occasion demands it!

The more informal brasserie option at this pukka country retreat offers a cheaper perch from which to attack the renowned cellar here, and provides a big menu, ranging from posh daytime sandwiches to a range of steaks from the grill. Or there’s the “lovely” Cocktail Lounge and Conservatory, where afternoon tea is “a great Yorkshire treat”.

Have you eaten at The Devonshire Brasserie, The Devonshire Arms?

Owner's description

The vibrant brasserie & bar has a riot of rich jewel colours and contemporary art, this together with the buzz of guests and locals makes this a really unique little spot.

Ruth and her friendly team are sure to make your visit memorable and a warm welcome for everyone. A perfect place to catch up for lunch or to mingle with friends for dinner and enjoy a much deserved glass of wine after a hectic day.

All of the dishes on the menu are available served at the bar, in the Brasserie or – weather-permitting – on the terrace. There is an impressive selection of wines, available by the glass or the bottle. A Sunday wouldn’t be complete without a traditional Sunday roast with family and friends, so why not treat yourselves to one of the best places in Yorkshire to dine out.
