Just six months after opening its doors to guests, The Derby Arms in Longridge is celebrating achieving prestigious industry recognition for its accommodation.

Following an unannounced recent stay in one of our elegant country bedrooms, an AA inspector awarded us a must sought after four star rating.

“We are delighted that the company’s first venture into accommodation has been rewarded by an outstanding grading from the AA’s hotel inspection team,” said Seafood Pub Company managing director Joycelyn Neve. “The AA has a very stringent inspection process in place looking at the standard of accommodation, knowledge of staff, bookings process, restaurant services and housekeeping quality.

“We are delighted with the hard work and commitment our team at the Derby have shown over the past six months and that this has been rewarded by the AA rating. Our team are passionate about promoting the Forest of Bowland as a true UK tourism destination and as a result of this inspection we are looking forward to welcoming many new guests to the Derby and the stunning Longridge countryside.”

The Derby Arms has also received praise nationally in a review in The Guardian with columnist Tony Naylor describing the team at the Derby as “striking an accomplished balance between genuine warmth and smooth professionalism.”
