Contemporary Italian

Nestled in the picturesque and historic Holme Valley; tucked away between ancient woodland and the gentle ebb and flow of the winding River Holme… lies Devour, a stone’s throw away from the cobbled streets of Holmfirth.

“Old School Italia with a little Devour Twist”

We’re located in a beautifully restored former Wood Turning Mill and Dyehouse, with Riverside Garden and Wild Flower Meadow, with decor embracing our post-modern industrial heritage with the warmth and energy of an Italian Piazza.

At Devour it’s simple; Good food, great music, family and friends!

We hope to be your new favourite place!

    The service at Devour is great, but for a restaurant that has an entire side of its menu dedicated to vegetarian/vegan, there aren't any good vegan mains, other than pizza. The kitchen offered to create a pasta for us but it was watery penne and not better than something we could have knocked up at home in 5 minutes. There are also no vegan desserts. For a restaurant as beautiful as it is, with such great service, the menu could be far better than it is.

    The food is fantastic as is the ambience although it is on the expensive side. It did feel like we were rushed out at the end of the evening due to the restaurant closing at around 10.30pm. This was disappointing.

    Staff were very attentive initially but as it became busier we found ourselves waiting longer and longer for service. Our food was cold when it arrived but staff rectified this quickly and courteously. The food was good and well presented but I feel that drinks are very overpriced.

    First visit back at Devour since Covid and boy was it difficult to get in! They are sooo busy and rightly so. It was the best experience and lived up to all my memories of previous visits and more. It was very busy but we were immediately shown to our table and it just got better an better from there. Lovely charming attentive staff took our order and promptly brought drinks etc. Food choices were great with good variety and really good vegetarian options. I’m not veggie but chose the pumpkin and butternut squash risotto and it was gorgeous! Our party enjoyed the pizzas and scallops particularly. The atmosphere was buzzing and lively but not too noisy. All in all a fabulous return to Devour and so happy it has survived and become even better. Congrats and thanks to you all

    This wasn't our first visit to Devour, in fact we have been a number of times since opening. This visit seemed busier than usual, certainly at the 7.45 time slot. Rushed to the table even though we were at least 10 minutes early for the booking. We asked to have a drink at the Bar, which was replied with a 'yes so long as you stand and order it yourself' Shown to our table, which seemed crammed in a little bit (table for 2), menu arrived which had changed since our last visit but also lost some of the Italian authenticity it certainly has had previously. Service was very slow unfortunately, indicative of either too many bookings or not enough staff to cover. I'm all for not being rushed but this was very slow. Starters ordered and were delivered within a reasonable time. Mains extremely overpriced for average food. Styles vary but £28 for a Cod loin that was falling to pieces as the skin had been taken off (serve roasted or pan fried Cod loin with crispy skin) on a bed of flavorless seafood pasta was poor. Veal escalope was tough, overcooked and dry and covered up with tomato ragu. Prosecco served was warm, questioned and told there wasn't a cold one available. so we were left with that, no other options offered other than more ice for the bucket! and this was after it had been opened and served. It was a small celebration for my wife, so cost wasn't the issue but actually £160 for 2 people for average Italian was as far as I'm concerned a bit too much. Made comment on paying the bill, just a simple apology and a shrug. It's got steadily worse since opening. Focus on less tables, higher quality food and service. The custom is there but definite improvements on food quality will maintain that custom for a lot longer. Would I go back? Yes but only to measure this last visit as I hope it was a one off. Would I recommend? I would but I wouldn't be surprised if the comments weren't similar to mine.

    From start to finish this meal was Amazing, the place is absolutely beautiful. Staff were there when you wanted them, and very polite. My Fiancé had a pigeon starter which was stunning. The meal was all beautiful and we haven’t stopped raving about the food and place since. My only negative was £30 for a bottle of Prosecco.. (however I had a £40 gift voucher from my birthday so treated myself to some fizz;0) Would highly recommend a visit

    Food was very good and definitely above the usual standard Italian, but pricy for the amount. We were seated very quickly so no time for a drink at the bar, but service was good and attentive throughout the evening. However the music was very very loud and we had to ask for it to be turned down, which has ever happened before ( maybe because the table was directly under a speaker). We are not the kind of people to do this normally but we had to shout above it. Will return in time, but not for a while as I feel its a very specialist menu. It is however a credit to the Holme Valley 😊
