About The Devonshire Fell

Situated in the luxurious Devonshire Fell, our superb restaurant is the perfect spot for all occasions from casual gatherings with friends to family celebrations and parties. Our Yorkshire restaurant offers spectacular panoramic views of the Yorkshire Dales, Burnsall village and the River Wharfe. The Bar and Conservatory areas are the perfect spot for a relaxed lunch or as a more intimate private dining area where you can sit back and catch up with friends over some pre-dinner drinks.
Our excellent restaurant provides the finest dining options, and it is with the fabulous local ingredients available nearby that we are able to create the outstanding food that we are so renowned for. With such high quality produce on our doorstep from award winning artisan cheeses to locally shot game and seasonal legumes from our own kitchen garden, we remain uncompromising in our commitment to local, seasonal ingredients. Our battered Whitby haddock with hand cut chips is one of the Duke’s favourites who recently declared the dish “the best I’ve ever tasted”.

Fantastic food, ambience & service, definitely recommend it. Obviously very COVID switched on with cleanliness and social distancing, felt very safe and at ease.

We arrived and were immediately told we’d booked for 2 not 3. I showed them the email and it was for 3 as I had booked for 3. We were then seated at a table not set up despite me booking. It was quiet enough to have had that sorted. We were then given a dirty fork, luckily we didn’t need this and mentioned it to the waiter. When receiving menus, 2/3 were empty so we had to share the menu. Food was great. Service wasn’t.

Very welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Spotless and comfy room . Attentive and friendly staff. Found the dinner menu a little limited but enjoyed what we had. Had no worries at all about Covid infection, we felt very safe . A lovely break.

We've been visiting the Fell for many years and this is the first 'Covid' visit. We were pleased to find that our experience was up to the usual high and can't wait to return.

We enjoyed an afternoon tea with you in lovely surroundings with excellent service. I think as far as value for money is considered afternoon tea for £37.00 for two is stretching it. A pity because everything else was good.

Covid19 has put most if not all of our 2020 retirement plans on hold. So, it was a real pleasure to have a Friday evening out enjoying a wonderful three course meal, some excellent wine and great service from all the staff. Our evening at the Fell was like an oasis of pleasure in the midst of a world turned upside down. Thank you

Booked for afternoon to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and it was great to return to The Fell. Nikki was so attentive (as she was on our wedding day-great to see her and reminisce over photos with her) and made us feel so welcome. The food was delicious and we were able to enjoy the spectacular views from the conservatory. Slightly lacking an atmospheric buzz due to covid restrictions but still had a wonderful time none the less and it all felt very covid safe.

Loved the view from our table, the staff were lovely, the beef was tough and hard to cut up and chew. The desserts were lovely.

Menu was a bit limited at lunchtime but the desserts made up for that, they were fabulous! Lovely surroundings and great view from the restaurant; the lady who served us was really friendly and professional. It was a lovely lunch experience all round

Oh dear, we had such high hopes having travelled 15 miles from our rented accommodation. Came for afternoon tea on Saturday and was very disappointed. We were initially put in the conservatory which consisted of two round tables pushed together for our party of 4. We couldn’t fault the view but the room was soulless with no atmosphere or warmth and the two round tables pushed together were an afterthought. The waitress didn’t give us a menu (afternoon tea or drinks menu) and the whole conversation with the waitress became difficult and convaluted around what we were ordering. Please just give the customer ( paper) menus to avoid this. We then spotted a much nicer table in the next room and asked to move to that. We asked for a glass of Prosecco with our afternoon tea and the measurement of Prosecco in the glass was very mean. It filled 3/4’s of the glass. The afternoon tea arrived and the sandwiches and scones were delicious. The other ‘cakes’ on offer however were very disappointing; a small square of flapjack, a small square of brownie, a miniature cheese cake which was actually a shot glass with crumbed digestive biscuits at the bottom with a lime cream cheese topping, and finally a small square of sponge with a jelly topping. Honestly, I really had hoped for a more interesting and much nicer selection. We had to ask for our tea (again no menus on what tea was on offer). The waitress could have smiled, could have been much more accommodating. It was all very ‘Faulty Towers’ I’m afraid. Afternoon tea is something to be celebrated, something special. It’s absolutely not supposed to be an afterthought shoved into a hotel’s food schedule to generate money between the lunch and evening menu. Sadly, this is what afternoon tea at the Devonshire Fell turned out to be and most certainly not worth the 30 mile round trip. Would not recommend or make a return visit.
