Headed by our award winning Chef, Paul Leonard, The Burlington specialises in seasonal and ever-changing tasting menus.
From home-grown fruit and vegetables from the Hotel's own kitchen garden, to produce reared and caught on the Estate, each and every ingredient is carefully considered from seed to plate within our menus here. These ingredients are then cooked skilfully by Paul and his team, who take pride in creating special dining experiences for the guest.
Personalised and discreet service from Restaurant Manager Jack and his team allow you and your party to enjoy your time together while we take care of the details.
To accompany the unforgettable food, we have an award-winning wine list. Each wine is stored in the impressive cellar, which features staples such as Bollinger and Laurent Perrier Champagne; and classic favourites to suit taste and budget.
Highly recommended are wine flights, carefully selected by The Head Sommelier; who worked with Paul to ensure each wine and dish from Paul's tasting menus are matched perfectly.

Meet The Chef
Born in Yorkshire, Paul found his way back to his roots in 2017, bringing with him a wealth of experience and a loyal team from the Isle of Eriska. Since Paul's arrival, the focus has been on using fresh, natural and seasonal ingredients and keeping the complexity of dishes to a minimum; allowing the produce to sing. The result is a classic, pared down menu with Yorkshire at the forefront, which also features subtle, expertly considered seasonings.
Morale in The Burlington has never been better, with the introduction of a four-day working week which has completely changed the work-life balance of the brigade. This has seen an influx in creativity with Paul often using ideas from his colleagues in the dishes; so each becomes a Burlington creation – a genuine team effort.
In terms of sourcing the superb ingredients that make the dishes what they are, Paul rarely looks beyond The Burlington’s very own doorstep. The Devonshire Arms’ kitchen garden provides a wealth of fresh fruit and vegetables, nurtured by Paul and fellow Chefs, with local suppliers delivering top-quality meat, cheese and poultry daily. Described as 'a love letter to the County' by The Good Food Guide, the simplicity and quality of Paul's menu showcases the best of Yorkshire produce.
Paul’s brief at the beginning of his role was simple; to create a buzz and excitement about The Burlington. Within his first year, Paul and his team achieved 4 AA rosettes, a rare and exemplary mark of recognition in the hospitality world. Following this, the accolades have been coming thick and fast, and it’s this alongside positive feedback from everyday customers that drives Paul and the team to succeed.
The Devonshire Arms Hotel has its own south-facing kitchen garden, originally established in Victorian times and reinstated in more recent years it comprises tiered sections, all enclosed with Yorkshire stone walls. Here wild flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables are tended to supply Chef and the kitchen team with a bountiful supply of fresh seasonal produce, right at hand. As well as being a practical solution to the kitchen’s needs, the space is also a popular with guests who are welcome by arrangement to have a stroll around and admire the garden, enjoying the sensory delights of the traditional English garden. You may well even share with us some of your own garden tips!
Favourites grown here in the summer season include heritage tomatoes, bronze fennel, lemon sorrel, baby beets, rocket, blackcurrants, strawberries and cucumbers. Nestled in our gorgeous Kitchen Garden filled with vast selections of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers sit two brand new hives buzzing with thousands of good tempered dark European honey bees, working hard to make Yorkshire honey that our chefs can’t wait to use in various creations for you to savour!
The Devonshire Arms is passionate about protecting the environment, thus winning Gold in the Green Tourism Awards for the last 2 years. A big part of that commitment is looking for new and creative ways to enhance our dedicated recycling programme for the well-being of our environment. We are aware of the global threats to honey bees that have reduced numbers – we hope to grow our colony to help support not only our surroundings but also awareness of these fascinating creatures and the benefit to nurturing them.
