Review on The Devonshire Fell
Originally built as a club for 'gentlemen mill owners', this colourful boutique hotel and bistro stands high on a hill overlooking the River Wharfe and the Dales. It now belongs to the same stable as the Devonshire Arms, Bolton Abbey and other prestigious venues, and has been attractively revamped in bold contemporary style.
Light meals are served in the bar, and more serious stuff is on offer in the conservatory dining room overlooking the superbly landscaped grounds. Locally sourced ingredients are skilfully deployed for a concise menu that puts traditional standards like Bury black pudding and Lancashire hotpot alongside more upbeat modern ideas such as scallops with smoked salmon and endive salad, lamb shank with ceps and parsnip cream or Gressingham duck breast with elderflower sauce. Desserts might include pistachio and nougat parfait, and the wine list is an extensive, carefully assembled slate from impeccable sources. Fish and chip suppers are a big hit on the first Friday of each month.
