Celebrations and nominations

Assheton Arms, located in the picturesque Ribble Valley village of Downham, is celebrating after securing the County Dining Pub award from The Good Pub Guide for a third successive year. It has also been confirmed as a finalist for two highly prestigious Lancashire Tourism awards, namely the Lancashire Perfect Stay and Taste Lancashire Pub / Inn categories. In addition, it has been nominated for the Lancashire Life Food & Drink 2018 prize in the Restaurant with Rooms category.

A Grade II listed country pub offering stunning views of Pendle Hill, the 12-room Assheton Arms already has a string of awards to its name. Its offer combines fresh seafood dishes with hearty classic dishes in a traditional pub setting.

Joycelyn Neve, The Seafood Pub Company’s founder and managing director, is naturally delighted at the award and various finalist nominations:

“Winning the County Dining Pub award and being nominated for other honours is naturally a huge boost to our team at Assheton Arms. Everyone here is committed to providing guests with the best possible experience; this success is great recognition of everybody’s hard work and I am delighted for them. To have been nominated for these awards by both customers and industry peers is just wonderful.”
