Review on Devonshire Arms, Burlington Restaurant

Built from the same stone as nearby Bolton Abbey, the lustrous Devonshire Arms and Burlington Restaurant started life as a seventeenth-century coaching house and it's now one of the most desirable jewels on the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire's Estate. Old architectural drawings, polished antique tables, fine china and crystal add an air of elegant serenity to the two small dining rooms; there's also a contemporary conservatory with views across the Italianate garden towards Wharfedale. As you might expect, service is slick, smooth and well drilled.

Expect high-end, intricate cuisine at the Burlington restaurant along the lines of home-smoked Vendéen duck with poached native lobster set in its own jelly with bacon foam and mango, wild salmon with bulgar wheat, watercress purée, Carlingford oyster beignets and truffle jus or lavender-scented medallion of pork with braised cheek, asparagus, choucroute and glazed beetroot.

The Burlington's wine list is an astonishing slate of more than 2,000 bins, which must rank as one of the most monumental in the land: it's an enviable collection of the great and the good, with pages of vintages, treasured rarities and a prodigious number by the glass.
