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.

We had a wonderful evening on Saturday. The food was delicious and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Originally we had a table booked outside, as that was all that was left, however the staff ensured we were moved inside at the earliest opportunity. We were also pleased to see socially distancing and hygiene practises were observed but this in no way got in the way of a pleasant evening! Thank you!

Rating given is mainly due to uncertainty of Covid 19 precautions. It took a while for a member of staff to come to get us at the external "wait here to be seated" point.

It is a lovely pub and the waiter was very kind. However my wife found a black hair in her chicken salad, when we returned it the waiter stated that the kitchen said this probably came from my wife's coat. May have been possible only that the hair was deep rooted in the meal and my wife's hair is blonde, and the coat is red. I did feel for the waiter tho having to be sent to give such a crap response. We did get the meal wiped off the bill. Wont be going again.
