About Us

Covid-19 Policy

We are currently open Monday to Sunday serving breakfast from 08:00 until 11:00 and our full menu from 12:00 until 21:00 (20:00 on Sundays), in both our pub and outdoor dining area. We are dedicated to sourcing local and seasonal Cumbrian produce for use in our restaurant, where you can enjoy delicious, home-cooked hot food. Our breakfast rolls are very popular with walkers and cyclists enjoying the beautiful Lakeland scenery.

Our six comfortable en-suite rooms are perfect for a special break and offer dog-friendly accommodation. If you are looking for bed and breakfast in Cumbria, or a staycation in a hotel in the Lake District, we would love to hear from you.

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.
