The Devonshire is one of the more iconic pubs in Grassington, it has recently shot to fame for being the new face of "The Drovers Arms" in the 2020 series of All Creatures Great and Small, a remake of the beloved tv show based upon the “James Herriott” books following a Scottish vet on his move to a sleepy Dales village; Darrowby.
Later on the Ales and Dales Trail, you will actually get to visit the original face of the "Drovers Arms" from the original series of "All Creatures Great and Small" at the Kings Arms in Askrigg! The Devonshire itself is a quaint Inn with higgledy-piggledy windows that sits as one of the focal points on the cobbled market square of Grassington. They serve the best ales and tasty traditional pub food as well lavish overnight lodging.
Opening hours vary year on year and can be seasonal. Pubs may only open on certain days of the week and only for a couple of hours.
Pubs in Yorkshire (especially in small villages) are known to close if they are especially quiet in the afternoons or late in the evening - it's always worth calling ahead and let them know you plan to visit in the afternoon or to simply check they will be open to avoid disappointment on arrival.
COVID19 – The impact of the global pandemic is evident for all local businesses over Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. Sadly, some pubs/hotels/restaurants/museums may have closed doors for good, some may be temporarily closed, and some may be open but will be operating under local guidance/restrictions from the UK government.
Depending on the dates you are walking, this may effect their normal operating hours, the number of people allowed in their property, the ability to serve customers indoors or outdoors, and in pubs it may even not be possible to serve alcohol at certain times of the day. To avoid disappointment, we recommend you check any pubs/cafe's/museums/tearooms/restaurants own website, social media or give them a call in advance of your visit. (were known we have given you the website and telephone number).
