The Devonshire is a Soho gastropub brought to life by legendary London publican Oisín Rogers and Flat Iron founder Charlie Carroll. The former is famous within London circles as the long-time landlord of the Guinea Grill, and he has paired with Carroll to bring this double-floored, wood-panelled gastropub to one of Soho's busiest thoroughfares.
The Devonshire is the culmination of an idea that Rogers and Carroll have talked about for the best part of a decade, and the hallmarks of both are easy to see across both floors of the pub. Downstairs promises to be a proper boozer, with Rogers pulling pints of quality beer and, of course, Guinness, served alongside home-made bar snacks like sausage rolls and the like. London's gastropub scene is as competitive as ever and The Devonshire is coming in all-guns-blazing, with an in-house butchery and bakery ensuring that everything possible is made on site to the pair's high standards.
Upstairs you'll find a 'highly ambitious' wood-fired restaurant, where produce from the in-house butchery and bakery features heavily. The Devonshire goes all-out on produce, sourcing Scottish seafood like creel-caught langoustines from Oban, hand-dived scallops from Devon and the best day boat fish they can lay their hands on. There's also Scottish beef which is butchered and dry-aged in-house, then grilled over wood and served as rib chops, fillets, as well as in classic English suet puddings.
As well as an a la carte, The Devonshire serves a three-course set menu, which returns to beloved pub classics like prawn and langoustine cocktail, steak and chips and sticky toffee pudding.
