Devonshire Arms

Devonshire Arms Review

This stone 18th-century coaching inn, which counts Charles Dickens as one of its many famous visitors, is divided into a cozy bar area and a modern brasserie, both serving impressive homemade fare. Alongside old favorites like bangers and mash, the menu offers such imaginative creations as roast partridge with pinot noir potato puree, and Chatsworth estate venison with smoked aubergine (eggplant), churros and chilli chocolate sauce. For dessert, try the apple tarte tatin served with ice cream made from apple and bilberries—a native English fruit in the same family as (but different to) blueberries. The inn, 2 miles south of Chatsworth, also has eight bedrooms.
