New Faces at The Devonshire

We are pleased to announce that from 21 January 2019, The Devonshire, Grassington will have new tenants.

Mat and Kirsty Wilson both have extensive pub experience.  Mat has been working for Hydes Brewery since 2012, most recently as Operations Manager looking after 16 managed outlets while Kirsty also has experience in the pubs industry, having worked in the management team of several Hydes’ outlets.  

They have two children, 10 and 2 years old, and plan to live in-house at The Devonshire.  They are very much looking forward to becoming full members of both the Timothy Taylor’s family and the Grassington community and running their own outlet.

Timothy Taylor’s acquired The Devonshire in summer 2015.  After an extensive refurbishment programme we re-opened for business in December 2015.  Our locals and tourists enjoy the cosy bar, the range of Timothy Taylor’s championship cask ales on hand pull, locally sourced food and the eight stunning rooms.

Why not pop in and meet Mat and Kirsty, they would love to see customer old or new and experience traditional Timothy Taylor’s hospitality at its best.

Discover the Wonders of Wharfedale

Timothy Taylor’s have created two scenic adventures to get you started on your discovery of the beauty of the Grassington and Upper Wharfedale area. Whether you are by foot or pedal power the routes will show off the best of the immediate area, conveniently looping back to Grassington where you’ll find a welcome pint, bite to eat or welcoming bed.

If you feel like being a little more adventurous, more walks and routes can be found on our ‘Dales’ page.

Secret Wharfedale: A bike ride from The Devonshire Grassington

This route takes you to a little known Bronze Age stone circle, a hidden dale that doesn’t even have a name, drift on though a time capsule of a village that could be plucked from a period drama and behold the magnificent view of Burnsall that you won’t find on any postcards. 


Wharfedale Wander: A walk from The Devonshire Grassington

The outgoing leg of this varied walk takes you from The Devonshire in Grassington market square up to Yarnbury to explore the old lead mine workings. You then follow pretty Hebden Beck to link up with the River Wharfe which provides a gentle return to Grassington.
