Will Larter left this review about The Devonshire

My first visit here since its reinvention as the Devonshire. There are now four hand pumps but the beer selection is quite different, with one from True North brewery (just around the corner), two from Dark Star (almost as far away as you can get without dipping your toes in La Manche) and Bradfield Belgian Blue (the winter-only beer from a few miles out of Sheffield). I didn't fancy the Dark Star Creme Brulee, a beer that does exactly what it says on the pump clip without tasting at all like a beer, and went for the True North Pale, not seeing until too late that it was single hopped with Cascade. Should have gone for the Dark Star Hop Head. (I know that's cascade too, but at least it's a tried and trusted brew. True North beers are somewhat variable, and this was no exception.)

The pub is now much smarter than before, with more of a cafe-bar feel to it. This was exemplified by the approach of a waitress as I came in, asking if I was here to eat or just for a drink. After I had taken my beer to a dining table (there is no other sort and they're somewhat regimented) I observed a couple come in and go straight to a table without even looking at the bar - it's that sort of place now. The sound track is ok if you don't mind listening to Space Oddity again. And Dock of the Bay. And Under the Boardwalk. OK, maybe not so good after all.

Some people will no doubt like this new version of the former pub, but my bet is they won't be the same people that used to like it as the Old House.

The Old House looks a bit more pub like than other bars on devonshire street.
Once inside there is a square shaped room with the bar facing,the room is divided into two halfs by a wall.
The floor is bare boarded and the seating mainly normal tables and chairs.
There was a good choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Ilkley Mary Jane which was a very nice well kept beer,the other beers i noted were Ilkley Joshuar Jane,Bradfield Farmers Blonde,Barnsley bitter and Black Iris.
The pub had a really nice laid back atmosphere.
I quite liked this one.

Interesting building, there is central entrance porch that opens into a full space twith the bar at the end. Broken by pillar walls there are two side areas.

Finely decorated with a lot of thought into the relaxed decor, it feels homely and relaxing despite the high ceiling. Nice serving glass ware as well.

Altogether the best central pub I visited.
