This is a "no frills" pub which is meant in a complimentary way. It is a pub which also serves food rather than like others in the vicinity which have turned into restaurants which also serve alcohol and where mere drinkers are discouraged.Six changeing real ales from local micros and larger regionals and a limited but perfectly acceptable food offering.The...

Our second stay at The Derby Arms and once again the room was comfy, the food excellent and the staff couldn't be faulted. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and will definitely be staying here again.

The bed in room no. 1 was wet as the ceiling had leaked due to a thumbed storm and heavy rain. They were fully booked so we couldn't have another room. We were offered drinks on the house but we had an hour and a half drive home so we declined. The guy who was dealing with us said he... More

The Derby Arms bar has a very warm atmosphere, the staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. The other customers, presumably locals, were quite chatty. Dogs were welcome in the bar which is a nice change these days. The food was good quality and reasonably priced. I would recommend this pub to anyone visiting the area.

We stayed at the Derby Arms overnight while travelling down to the south of England. We found them off the Booking.com website and it was only 50 GBP bed and breakfast. The room had an ensuite, it was clean, neat and it had a good shower with excellent water pressure and not the "piddly" drip of an electric shower. They... More

Have stayed a number of times and am never disappointed. Staff are very helpful, there is a comfortable but efficient atmosphere to the place. Genuinely dog friendly which is important to me. Ideal location for visiting a wide variety of places and walks.

I've been to this pub a few times but never thought to review it. I always take visiting friends and family here. The food is alway great and the staff very friendly. A good selection of beers from local brewery's which are rotated regularly and kept well. A great all round village pub.

I spend two nights in The Derby Arms after a bushcraft training in the area. It was also our meeting point before heading out and I was able to leave my valuables in their safe, which, travelling from overseas, was very nice. Having travelled thru England before coming to stay and having forgotten two items with friends in London, the... More

Just a perfect stop for us. Loved the room, loved the place & loved the people. Nothing was too much trouble and my querky eating choices were never questioned. Would I stay there again yes I would. I would say, like anything, it won't be every body's cup of tea but it's a great brew for me.
