We arrived on day one of our honeymoon road trip. Staff.....accommodating, food.....fantastic,value for money.....excellent. The room was clean and tidy. Lovely roll top bath. This place is pet friendly and despite this, there were no signs that there had been dogs in the room. An excellent nights sleep was had at the Derby Arms 😊 well recommended.

Wonderful country pub and restaurant just off the main A590 an easy detour on your way into or out of the Southern Lakes and a little less crowded at weekends than its sister pub/restaurant the Strickland Arms. Excellent food, first class real ales and friendly service, what more is there to say? It's always worth booking ahead however as this... More

I really liked the hostelry here; the decor, the open fire, the dog friendly welcome. It is easy to find and the atmosphere was just perfect. Next time we visit my aunt in Grange Over Sands, we will definitely stay here again. Thanks to all the staff. X

We really liked the atmosphere, setting and decor of The Derby Arms where we had invited our son and partner to stay with us as our guests. The food was good, the beer fine. Someone obviously tried to create a good inn - but the service was lamentable. Our rooms were never serviced during our 3 night stay (no bed... More

Lovely one night stay here in September. Evening meal was excellent, and the atmosphere in the pub was great. The breakfast the morning after was ideal, choice of cereal and toast then full English breakfast which set us up for the day! The room was clean, and of ample size for 2 of us and our dog. Just what we... More

I stayed with a group of friends for one night to attend a friends wedding nearby. The staff were really helpful and allowed us to check in to the rooms early to get changed. Beds and showers were great, and the breakfast was really good too. Would definitely stay again.

Lovely meal although there had been mix up in the kitchen and we had to ask when would we get our meal. Staff were helpful at this point although they hadn't noticed that our meals hadn't arrived after nearly an hour. That said the food was hot and very tasty, with no negatives from the other three diners in our... More

Hello there, sorry to hear of the delay with your meals - this shouldn't've happened and we're very sorry that you couldn't have received them sooner. We're glad that when they arrived that they were to the standards we pride ourselves on - in future we would be more than happy to swapping custard for ice cream or vice versa!... More
