I was keen to revisit the Devonshire as this had, in a previous life, served us the worst meal with the worst service ever. My girlfriend and I enjoy eating out and were excited about visiting the new Devonshire. The atmosphere and ambience were very nice. Staff friendly and helpful and we were shown to the table straight away.
However, the food was disappointing given the cost. I ordered scallops to start at a little under £13. This was very steep considering the small – but attractive – portion that came. 3 – 4 very small scallops (3 I think) with three small pieces of belly pork. The belly pork was tasty, the scallops less so. This is perhaps as high as I have paid for a starter at any restaurant in the midlands area.
My main course was pork shoulder on crushed jersey royals. The pork was delicious, the jersey royals not cooked enough. There was no selection of veg and none was offered.
My desert of chocolate brownie with marshmallow cream was not good because the brownie was very dry in texture. There was a small amount of the cream which was very gluey (as one would expect). Something with more of a liquid consistency would have perhaps made the brownie more appealing.
Service was very fast and efficient. We enjoyed the atmosphere.
