Well off the beaten track in one of the quiet, quaint alleyways which are a feature of the Inns of Court, the Devereux is a pub enhanced by its atmospheric location. It's a solid, traditional pub - quite appropriate for the area - with some interesting, well-kept ales on the hand pumps, a decent wine list and the usual spirits and lagers. The Devereux is pretty much a lunch time and afterwork sort of pub and gets busy around those times, offering a traditional menu (some might say ordinary) to accompany the drink and if you're looking for a more formal setting there's a restaurant upstairs. Outside of these hours, it tends to be pretty quiet, with the occasional groups from nearby offices wandering in from time-to-time. The Devereux is a traditional, pretty ordinary pub, there are plenty of those in these parts, you pays your money, you takes your choice.
