"My food philosophy is based around sourcing the best ingredients possible, utilising the Yorkshire larder when at its best or further afield when necessary.  Treating ingredients in manner that allows them to shine, combining classical flavours & methods with my own techniques and presentation style ."


Our kitchen garden here at The Dev produces herbs, edible flowers, fruit & vegetables which Adam uses in his seasonal dishes. His particular favourite herbs are the delicate lemon verbena and aromatic bronze fennel.

The Devonshire Arms wine cellar


The Devonshire Arms is renowned for having one of the finest cellars in the country – offering house wines through to very rare bottles with four-figure price tags. This Yorkshire restaurants cellar boasts more than 1,500 fine and rare wines and Champagnes. The wine list includes 200 house wines and at least 20 wines available by the glass.


By buying 'en primeur' (before a wine is ready to drink) and laying the wine down for ten years or so, we are able to offer some real gems at less than one can buy them on the high street.


Savour a premier cru bottle and save money


You may even find that the combined cost of staying overnight, dining in The Burlington and savouring a premier cru bottle works out considerably less than the price of that same wine on its own at a London restaurant.


Our Cellar Master, Nigel Fairclough, is passionate about wine and proud to oversee what he firmly believes to be the best restaurant wine list in the country.
