This striking village pub and restaurant, located between Longridge and Chipping, features a central bar leading into three relaxed dining rooms, two with feature fireplaces.
They are especially passionate about seafood; it’s what Joycelyn, their founder, was brought up surrounded by; her father being a renowned fish-merchant and a family history in the fishing industry dating back to the 18th century. Naturally, this sees the food style lean towards light and fresh seafood dishes. That said, they all love the friendly informality of pubs, so British classics and hearty dishes have their place firmly on the menu. Just as important as the seafood specials, these comforting dishes are a must after a good walk with the dog or with friends, enjoyed sitting by one of the many open fires.
The menu is written freshly every day, allowing them to make the most of whatever fish and seafood has just been landed alongside the best seasonal and regional produce the market has to offer. On Sundays, they add a choice of roasts with all the trimmings from local farmers and, during game season, you can be sure to find a plentiful game selection on the menu.
Diners and visitors can stop over for a night or two, making the most of the menu and wine list, as well as the stunning location they’re lucky to be part of. They have the most wonderful surroundings of the great outdoors, pretty market towns and historic attractions – right on the doorstep. The rooms blend traditional and contemporary furnishings, just like the pubs, ensuring comfort and good facilities with specific dog-friendly rooms. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and free WiFi. No overnight stay at the Derby Arms is complete without trying its breakfast which includes a hearty full Lancashire breakfast.
