We were a table of 12 persons and had booked beforehand. However when we got to the pub we found that two of our tables had been taken by other patrons and we were left to squeeze around a smaller table until the other persons decided to leave. It was quite uncomfortable at first and even though we complained to... More

We had a fantastic afternoon come evening playing Settlers of Catan in this charming pub. Excellent ales and an unparalleled level of service from our waitress Clair. Couldn't recommend this establishment more.

The Devonshire is sometimes rammed and sometimes quiet. Quiet today but friendly service, clean tables and prompt service. A proper pub, managed by a polite and friendly chap and foods fine. All in all very good and not expensive nor a tourist trap. If visiting a nearby hospital for a check up its ideal.

Been here a few times, this past weekend was the first time I'd eaten here. Delicious food, Chicken Sunday Roast was fantastic. Nice and moist. Decent selection of beers at reasonable prices. Definitely will stop in for the roast again.

Just visiting from the US, have visited the Devonshire Arms several times and will be sure to be back again. This is a cozy local pub and grill. There are lots of good things to eat (fish and chips, burgers, o-rings) and all kinds of mixed drinks and excellent beers on tap. But what makes this place truly amazing are... More

Are here whilst away in business. They have a great selection of beers and the pub's interior looks great. I ordered the chicken wings to start which were both different and delicious. The burger I had looked better than it tasted but was still a decent burger. What struck me was the lack of good service. Maybe just me but... More

Description
South Kensington's cosiest pub. Just a stones throw from the boutique-lined streets of South Kensington, The Devonshire Arms has rustic character and vintage style in equal measure. Step inside to discover an unsurpassable range of speciality drinks, all served with a dash of idiosyncratic charm and an eclectically furnished interior that exudes a subtle air of stately-home grandeur, an apt setting for sipping on a crisp New Zealand Pinot G or treating yourself to one of our home-cooked Sunday roasts. The pub garden has ample tables that catch the sun with heating and jumbo umbrellas for when the British weather catches you off guard!

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
