About Us

A most charming, delightful, rural English Pub with 6 en-suite bedrooms.

The Derby Arms joined the Ainscoughs Pub team in December 2008 after extensive restoration.  Serving good food, beer and wine in a traditional environment with log fires and period furniture just like the rest of the pubs in the group.  We have now been recommended in the Michelin Pub Guide for 2015 and have won the ‘Pub of the Season’ award, CAMRA.
