Derby Arms making waves on 27 September
FAMOUS for its fabulous food-producing heritage, Lancashire is the place to go to get your fill of fantastic eats and drinks. And the Derby Arms – set in the picturesque Ribble Valley between the market town of Longridge and the charming village of Chipping – is fast earning a reputation for dishing up a delicious daily changing menu brimming with local produce, including signature seafood dishes making the most of whatever has just been landed on the nearby North West coast.
The team at the Derby Arms is particularly passionate about seafood as the pub has a seafaring heritage – founder Joycelyn’s father is a renowned fish merchant and her family history can trace an involvement in the fishing industry dating back to the 18th century.
The Derby Arms’ Seafood Dinners are renowned for their combination of a special seafood menu along with a fish prep and cooking demonstration.
