Clearly post Christmas supplies had run low everything from no fillet steak to no coffee ! If your looking for a fine dining experience or even good pub... More

Dropped in for a meal and a few drinks. Lovely efficient waitress run off her feet with another waitress also very busy. So sad to see the standard of food has deteriorated significantly. As we live locally this pub is very much part of our community- as much as Heswall has a community! How can they get fish and chips... More

I visited here with 7 of family on 29/12/2016 as my sister in law was here from London. I have to say that there was no organisation what so ever. No one seemed to know what they were doing. Looked like there was no management on site this day, bar building up with glasses, as was our table for the... More

Our family had a festive lunch here just before Christmas as we couldn't all be together on Christmas Day. The restaurant did well! Good food, good service.

We visited The Devon Doorway at lunchtime. This venue is very cosy and comfortable lovely for a family meal or romantic meal for two. We had the 2 courses for £12.95 which was very reasonable. We had Steak pie, Gammon and Fish Finger sandwich all of which were good, hot and plentiful. My only disappointment was the bill. Unfortunately this... More

I went to the Devon Doorway with a party of 16. The waitresses were lovely and very friendly. They allowed us to mix and match from different menus which was much appreciated. The actual restaurant is cosy, clean and modern with comfortable seating. The food took quite a while between courses and some of the party were waiting whilst others... More

Our menu changes with the seasons and is modern British, comfortably interwoven with some Mediterranean influences.It ranges from traditional favourites such as fish and chips and steaks to freshly made pizzas and pastas with the chef’s daily specials showcasing the finest market fresh ingredients. There’s something for everyone and for all occasions too. You don’t have to go for the full works if you don’t want to, just have a snack and a lovely drink in the bar with your friends.Wine is something of a passion for us and nothing pleases us more than when we unearth a new discovery that blows our socks off! We’ve got everything from crisp refreshing whites, trendy pinks to fat juicy reds by the bottle or glass so we are really looking forward to your reaction to all the latest treasures!We are also very proud of our beers and we have a great selection of cask ales, super chilled draft and bottled beers to quench your thirst.Just stop by for a pint of ale, read the papers and chill out or book a table and enjoy simple food prepared with care.
