I thought this was pretty bog standard Wethers. Busy on my Saturday afternoon visit and though the place is reasonably well kept it just seemed cluttered to me. Multi-roomed with a large hall-like bit as you enter leading to the bar. 10 handpumps and the selection wasn't that far off what Mr Aqualung had except there were a couple of beers left over from the beer festival. Its an ok place I suppose.

According to What Pub this is the former home of the Duke Of Devonshire but what was he doing up here when he should have been in Exeter or somewhere?
It's an old stone building with a decent size front patio that was packed on my Saturday afternoon visit. Inside the bar area is at the back right with eating areas either side at the front.
The bar has ten hand pumps which had two available soon, one unused, Ruddles doubled, Doom Bore, Goose Eye Chinook, Black Moor & Pommies Revenge and Bradford Golden. I went for the Black Moor (£2.19) which was in excellent nick. Apart from the staff being a bit stretched when I arrived on a busy Saturday I thought this was a good Spoons.

Pleasant enough 'spoons in a rather nice old Georgian townhouse. Opened out but still with discrete spaces and the furniture isn't crammed in as in some places. Not many of the usual spoons characters to enjoy on my Sunday lunchtime visit. However in the irritating modern style, payment was taken for my pint before a drop was poured by a barman who promptly forgot which beer it was ! Interesting art works sculpture wise plus the usual old photos. A 5x5 pump configuration with limited double ups, no coming soons and mostly decent staff, so almost a top spoons.

Gloomy lobby and bar with 4 brighter side rooms. 5 local ales - all pale and wan - 3 regulars. We staggered back for breakfast - warm plates and cold food. Plenty coffee and quiet and time to take in this fine old building.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Devonshire (JD Wetherspoon)

As far as JD'S go, I think it's one of the best I've visited. Grade II listed former townhouse of the Duke of Devonshire, dating from 1702. Also ran as the established Devonshire Hotel. Four rooms of varying character with several original features retained. I found the air con ducting running through the building had brought modern tech mixing with the past to be quite a feature. Enjoyed the Northumberland Best of Britain, Bomar Bitter, Titanic Brewery Titanic 1912-2012 and Daleside Old Leg Over.

This is a large pub away from the town centre and i was surprised when i went in to find out it was a Wetherspoons pub.
Once inside here it was one large room furnished in the usuall Wetherspoons manner but this was quite comfortable and there was a good choice of beers on the bar,i car'nt remember what beer i had here but it was a decent drink.
