Who Are We?

On January 21 st 2019 The Devonshire, and Grassington, welcomed new tenants.
Mat and Kirsty Wilson both have extensive pub experience.

Mat had been working for Hydes Brewery since 2012, most recently as Operations Manager looking after 18 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, 12 and 3 years old, and live in-house at The Devonshire.  They are very much full members of both the Timothy Taylor’s family and the Grassington community running their own outlet.

Timothy Taylor’s acquired The Devonshire in summer 2015.  After an extensive
refurbishment programme it was 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 customers old or new and experience traditional Timothy Taylor’s hospitality at its best.

Eat with us

Our kitchen offers traditional, home cooked pub food. Our menu showcases the best that Yorkshire has to offer, from the award winning chickens from Soames Poultry in Driffield, to our fish courtesy of Hodgsons and the meat from Jacksons of Cracoe (just down the road). All produce is sourced locally where possible, ensuring it’s always fresh.

Daily specials allow our talented chefs to take advantage of catch of the day fresh fish, limited availability game, and kitchen garden produce as the seasons allow. We serve the same menu throughout, whether in the restaurant, the bar or outside in the gardens.

We can tailor our menus and our dining space to accommodate large gatherings and special family occasions.

Stay a while

Choose from our eight beautifully appointed bedrooms, a mixture of Standard Double, Large Double, and Suites. All come with the usual comforts you’d expect including TV, FREE Wifi, tea and coffee.

Four of our rooms are also dog friendly, please ask when booking to check availability.

Staycation

MEANING: a holiday in one’s home country rather than abroad, or spent at home involving daytrips to local attractions.
How can we help? The Yorkshire Dales National Park is the perfect staycation for you and The Devonshire is the ideal base to be able to sample true Yorkshire Hospitality. We’d be more than happy to help you.

Discover the Wonders of Wharfedale

We 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.
