Newly refurbished pub with rooms at the gateway to the Trough of Bowland.

Dating back to the 18th century, The Derby Arms at Thornley enjoys a wonderful setting at the gateway to the Trough of Bowland, in-between Longridge and Chipping. It’s recently been taken over and completely refurbished by the award-winning Seafood Pub Company and features a central bar leading into three separate dining rooms. There’s also a tap room with bar games, an al fresco area and six bedrooms for guests that fancy an overnight stay. Executive chef Antony Shirley adds his international experience from Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge to Raffles in the West Indies. His food ranges from pub classics such as Salt beef and potato pie with caper and mustard relish, pickled red cabbage and gravy to signature dishes like Hake wrapped in proscuttio with olive crushed potatoes, parsley and lemon dressing and Derby Arms fish stew with prawn bisque, seasonal fish and shellfish, saffron potatoes, croutes, garlic mayo and Gruyère. And as a cask marque member, traditional award-winning cask ales and local brews from Lancashire breweries are part of a well-maintained selection of wines, spirits and soft drinks. Other Seafood Pub Company properties include the Oyster & Otter at Feniscowles, near Blackburn, the Assheton Arms at Downham, the Fenwick Arms at Claughton, near Lancaster, the Barley Mow at Pendle, near Burnley and the Farmers Arms at Great Eccleston, near Garstang.

Sea the stars of the future at charity event (Thursday 19th March)The Seafood Pub Company’s culinary stars of the future are being given free rein to showcase their talents at a charity event at the Derby Arms in Longridge. Four of the award winning Seafood Pub Company’s junior chefs will be taking over the kitchen for the night on Thursday, 19th March in aid of Hospitality Action, a charity which offers a crucial lifeline to people of all ages, working and retired, from the hospitality industry. Rachel Pinder will be preparing canapés for the 50 guests at the event. Rachel is a Level 2 NVQ student at Accrington and Rossendale College and her dishes will include lobster samosas and smoked salmon pancakes. Elliot Mullins, a former Blackburn College apprentice, is in charge of the starter of slow cooked Loch Duart salmon with blood orange at the charity event. Elliot spent a week at Raymond Blanc’s Cookery School at Belmond Le Manoir in Oxford last summer, widening his knowledge of the hospitality industry. The main course of Goosnargh duck will be designed and prepared by Dominic Duxbury, a Level 3 apprentice at Accrington and Rossendale College. Dominic was named apprentice of the year by his catering tutors at the College last year. Finally, guests will enjoy a treacle tart dessert made by Accrington and Rossendale College award winner Chelsea Birtwistle. 20 year old Chelsea from Oswaldtwistle was rewarded at the College’s end of year awards after achieving top marks on her course. Tickets for the £40 per person event, which takes place from 7pm on Thursday, 19th March, are available by calling the Derby Arms on 01772 782370.
