Our Inspector's View

The Devonshire Arms may sound like a cosy village pub, but is actually a country house hotel set in 30,000 acres of the Duke of Devonshire's estate, and The Burlington Restaurant is the star of the show, where chef Peter Howarth delivers food of craft and creativity, making good use of the estate's excellent produce and the kitchen garden for herbs, vegetables and fruits. For main you might try the John Dory – fresh, firm in texture and very well timed; the tempura batter is super crisp and has a lovely brittleness. Perhaps finish with the delicious blood orange salsa, chocolate tart, creme fraiche sorbet with mint. Table d'hôte dining or the multi-course tasting option are recommended and of course there are wine pairings from the extensive list available.

About The area

Discover North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire, with its two National Parks and two designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is England’s largest county and one of the most rural. This is prime walking country, from the heather-clad heights of the North York Moors to the limestone country that is so typical of the Yorkshire Dales – a place of contrasts and discoveries, of history and legend.

The coastline offers its own treasures, from the fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood Bay to Scarborough, one time Regency spa and Victorian bathing resort. In the 1890s, the quaint but bustling town of Whitby provided inspiration for Bram Stoker, who set much of his novel, Dracula, in the town. Wizarding enthusiasts head to the village of Goathland, which is the setting for the Hogwarts Express stop at Hogsmeade station in the Harry Potter films.

York is a city of immense historical significance. It was capital of the British province under the Romans in AD 71, a Viking settlement in the 10th century, and in the Middle Ages its prosperity depended on the wool trade. Its city walls date from the 14th century and are among the finest in Europe. However, the gothic Minster, built between 1220 and 1470, is York’s crowning glory.
