About Us

Covid-19 Policy

We are currently open Monday to Sunday serving breakfast from 8am and hot food until 9pm, in both our pub and outdoor dining area. We serve food only to those staying with us on Monday and Tuesday, but offer a local menu for the rest of the week.  We look forward to welcoming you and whether indoors or outdoors, we will endeavour to provide you with an authentic Derby experience. 

Rooms with ensuite bathrooms, in a dog friendly traditional pub/hotel with free WiFi and restaurant.

The Derby Arms joined the Ainscoughs portfolio in December 2008 after extensive restoration and in keeping with the Ainscough reputation, we serve good food, beer and wine in a traditional environment with log fires and period furniture. We have been recommended in the 2015 Michelin Pub Guide and have won the Pub of the Season award, CAMRA.

Food & Drink

At The Derby Arms we are delighted to have earned an enviable reputation for an imaginative menu created from quality fresh food with many ingredients sourced from local suppliers.

What’s On?

Throughout the year we regularly host live music in our bar area on Friday and Saturday nights from 9pm -11pm.

Due to Covid-19 our events are currently on hold

Stay With Us

Above the pub we have 6 individually designed cosy bedrooms, each with ensuite shower or unique roll-top bath.

Comfortable beds, WiFi and flat screen TVs as standard – a home from home whilst visiting The South Lakes
