Nothing beats a good Derbyshire pub, particularly one offering six hand-pulled beers and two traditional ciders, together with a selection of cask ale and lager. The esteemed Devonshire Arms offers all of this, and traditional alehouse enthusiasts travel from far and wide to taste the rare Sarah Hughes’ Dark Ruby beer. The pub has become a drive-to destination with a growing reputation amongst CAMRA members for serving the best beer at great prices. It’s no surprise they’ve been awarded Mansfield & Ashfield CAMRA’s Derbyshire Pub of the Year for the past 10 consecutive years.

The Sunday carvery proves popular with patrons, and for good reason. A choice of five roast meats and a vegetarian option are available, complemented by a colourful array of vegetables, Yorkshire puddings and sauces on request. Everything is cooked fresh to order, overseen by landlady Patricia who ensures only the best food is served. My husband chose the classic fish and chips with mushy peas. I opted for the homemade steak and ale pie, a combination of melt-in-the-mouth shortcrust pastry and chunky pieces of steak, served with chips, peas and gravy.

Leaving just enough room for dessert, my husband finished with the lemon meringue pie and ice cream. I relished a sumptuous homemade cherry and apple crumble doused in warm custard. A coffee and bite-sized chocolate each proved the perfect way to end the meal.
