I popped in here on my way to Paddington and really didn't want to leave. I didn't order food so can't comment there but the draught cider was wonderful, the sun was out and the beer garden was bliss. I had my little Jack Russell...More

The Duke of Devonshire is situated in a very nice part of London. It is a big pub and they have a good selection of beers and lagers. The beer was OK though we weren't certain it was the best kept in the area. Pleasant...More

Thank you Watchman077 for your very kind words about us and the team. Shame we didn't nail it with the beer- but hopefully you'll try us again, and we'll pull that rating up to 5 Stars!

Clean, friendly pub. Feels like a local pub. A good selection of beers on tap. Outdoor seating area. Great place to have a pint on a warm summer's night. Busy, but not extremely busy. Serves food as well as drink. Female friendly

We were staying nearby and met some friends here - mainly because we wanted somewhere with outdoor space on a not July day. The pub is on a quietish residential street with the beer garden out front. You know you're in London, but it's away...More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Description
South Kensington's cosiest pub. Just a stones throw from the boutique-lined streets of South Kensington, The Devonshire Arms has rustic character and vintage style in equal measure. Step inside to discover an unsurpassable range of speciality drinks, all served with a dash of idiosyncratic charm and an eclectically furnished interior that exudes a subtle air of stately-home grandeur, an apt setting for sipping on a crisp New Zealand Pinot G or treating yourself to one of our home-cooked Sunday roasts. The pub garden has ample tables that catch the sun with heating and jumbo umbrellas for when the British weather catches you off guard!
