SquareMeal Review of The Burlington Restaurant at Devonshire Arms

The sumptuous Devonshire Arms in Lower Wharfedale cossets its guests from the moment tyres crunch on gravel. Fine dining takes place in the plush Burlington Restaurant, and the kitchen’s endeavours are characterised by complex, highly technical work and intense flavours. Whether you choose the carte or the “excellent” tasting menu, you can expect bright modern ideas – think roast scallop with truffle, turnip and chicken or salt-aged Yorkshire beef with oxtail celeriac and dripping. Pickings from the kitchen garden make a valuable contribution too, as in heirloom beetroot with smoked eel, horseradish and nasturtium or turbot with carrot, lettuce and lobster cream. There’s also plenty of élan and artistry when it comes to desserts such as Tomlinson’s rhubarb with yoghurt, almond and white chocolate or a take on Arctic roll involving lemon, blueberry and sloe gin. The culinary fireworks are underpinned by a world-class wine cellar with some 30,000 bottles – zooming up to five figures for the bonus schemers. “Superb staff and service” seal the deal.

as you enter the restuarant and shown to your table by charming restuarnt manger eric! puts you in relaxed mode. have been going here for 4 years now and food has always been excellent, great flavours and nice portions, i feel it could put some 2 michelin restuarnts to shame in london! wine manger Nigel really knows his stuff and always tries to deliver value for money with some great reds in £40-50 mark. what i like about this restuarant is that you are allowed children, any age which i think is great, unlike most restuarants which have silly age limit. Staff are great with the kids and my daughter reguarly gets visits to the kitchen!! great. so if u have kids but still want to have great food come here, hotel is fantastic as well,doggies allowed everywhere aprt from restuararnt which is fair enough! a real treat!
