The food was value for money. The evening was spoilt by the ambience. Our table was next to a group of 5 noisy people. The manager did move them when we complained but by this time we had finished our main course.

This was our first visit and found the whole experience pretty average. Soup was salty and quite tastelessl. Wine was not chilled enough. Probably wouldn't make the journey again.

Food was good the dining area was cold. I think this is due to staff being in and out to serve outdoors due to the virus
My wife’s desert did not come until the staff where prompted however we were not charged

As usual, a lovely night at the Devonport. We took advantage of the food week offer- 3 courses for £15. Such a bargain and the dishes were really good-well presented and tasty. ( I always prefer the dishes on the specials list, even when not on a promotion.)
Service was particularly good

Lovely sunny day, sat outside, food really good. Slight problem with the bill, overcharged for 3 starters which we included in the 3 course meal charge but was corrected when pointed out. Not keen on the addition of service charge although optional. A tip is optional anyway. We did pay but think it’s cheeky to add first. Just a personal opinion but was echoed in our group of diners.

Lovely food in lovely surroundings. The staff were very well organised under the current restrictions. It was our anniversary and the chef wrote ‘happy anniversary’ in chocolate on our desserts. Little touches make the the day.....

Sunday lunch would have been better with veg served in a separate bowl rather than piled on the plate so we could have seen what we were eating.

Unfortunately we didn't enjoy our meal. The food arrived tepid and the beef was very poor - needed a lot of chewing. Also we were surprised to get everything on the plate, rather than having the veg in separate dishes as we get practically everywhere else.
The staff were very helpful when we mentioned that the food was not hot enough and took it back to the kitchen. When it was returned to us, it was much hotter - as it should have been in the first place.

An enjoyable Sunday lunch with 3 of my grand daughters, ages 13 down to 3. We all enjoyed our meals, I had the beef followed by the sticky ginger pudding, a real treat.
Service was pleasant and efficient. I've been before and I'll be back again.
