Devenneys Irish Pub
When my parents returned from a visit to our villa in Orlando they were eager to tell us about a new Irish pub that had opened at the end of 2008 and was opposite Cagan Crossing which is about a mile and a half from our villa at Lindfields.
If you head along the 192 and take the 27 going north with Wal-Mart’s on your right you take a u turn at the first set of traffic lights and Devenneys is on your right.
Apparently this was a dream of a gentleman who originates from Ireland and with his two partners realised the need for such a place in this area of Davenport. They aimed and have succeeded in making a place with an Irish welcome where you are treated as though you are being welcomed into a home and you can drink, eat, watch sport or enjoy the entertainment on offer.
Devenneys is open seven days a week 11. 30am until late ( I don’t know what late is because my parents cam home before the end) and has a happy hour 5- 7pm and 10. 00pm till close which is similar to TGI Fridays. There is entertainment starting at 8. 00pm every evening and this can range from life music to karaoke. Apparently it is a great place to be on both New Years Eve and St Patrick’s Day with Irish dancers performing on the latter.
For the men who like they beer they will find the following beers on tap:
- Stella Artois
Amongst the cocktails available are Mayo’s Margarita, Kerry’s Crazy Pina Colada and the Ruff Rider. I fancy trying the Craic which is Chilled Smirnoff vodka and Cointreau,
with cranberry & lime juices.
There is a good children’s menu with the usual fare of chicken fingers, pasta and burgers and with two other useful additions of – “Plate of Chips & Two Slices of Bread or
Egg, Baked Beans & Chips”.
If you have a late start there is a Full Irish Breakfast which is served all day and comprises 2 eggs, 2 sausages, 2 rashers, black/ white pudding, mushrooms, baked beans and toast. If you or any of your party are not quite so hungry there is the Light Irish Breakfast of 2 eggs, 1 sausage, 1 Rasher of Bacon, and Toast.
There is a great selection of starters which you may also prefer to have as a light meal. Apparently one evening my parents both shared two plates of Home Made Derry Fries one served with their own special curry sauce the other with cashel blue cheese.
You can choose from the menu or burgers, sandwiches, wraps and pasties or opt for their large menu of Irish Specialty Dishes. I have already decided that when I go I am going to have the Corned Beef and Cabbage one of my favourites.
Several of the guests at our villa have been here since it opened and have been pleased with both the food and the service. When I next visit I will update you on my experience.
