Lovely rural pub with great food and drinks but the price doesn't represent quality. Really good pub food at high end restaurant prices. To be fair I was expecting better for what I paid.

We always travelled to the Derby Arms for a meal (usually Sunday). What on earth has happened? There was always plenty of choice on the menu and the food was unbelievebly good. The ribeye steak was out of this world, now there is only fìsh and chips on offer. Lets be honest if i wanted this dish i would go to my local takeaway. Is this another pub about to go to the wall? mmm.

Coudn't be better located,couldn't have better parking,couldn't be a better sized pub,couldn't have a better seating area outside.Should have more staff, one girl on a saturday night is inadequate as she was doing everything including getting customer's take away order's?
The lay out inside is good but need's some T.L.C,beer garden and play area for children is a great size, need's a good tidying,because this is a brilliant selling point especially as it is nearly summer, maybe paint your tables to add to the rural look. Only one ale on and very near it's sell by date, Hubby had to have San Miguel, He is not a Lager drinker.
The lady in the chip shop couldn't have been nicer,the fish and chip's could have been.Fish was over cooked and I can't really describe the chips!!!
I suggest they have a trip to Croston Chippy and try their food as it is always on form. Don't mix the pub and chippy keep them seperate, if customer's want take away they should get it themselves,even if they are going to eat it in your beer garden,then you know what your staff are doing.Pub staff and Chippy Staff, doesn't look good if you are all trying to do all of the job's. Staff should have dedicated roll's and only help out if in dire need.
If the pub had some sort of identity like a nod towards farming, a few picture's, maybe an old milk churn or a butter churn in a corner. As for your real ales it would be nice to think you get the small ( Polypin ) so you can have more variety and less wastage.

I know this review sound's as if I didn't like your home and livelihood but it is quite the contrary, too many pub's are closing down and the social hub of many villages are being lost and contributing to depression and loneliness of the community's population, it would be a crying shame if this happened to your's, your pub has real potential to be a fantastic asset to the area and a credit to you as owner's.
This is just a suggestion(Another), if I were you I would go to the Withy Arm's at Bamber Bridge, absolutely awful in my mind outside but inside what an amazing difference. Try the food and ale, they do actually have a brewery.
Another pub you should look at is The Magnet at Stockport on the A6. Yes a bit far but well worth the visit. Not something you should do with your wall's but it work's well here.
No I do not own a pub, worked in a few and visited many, as I have said it would be a pity to see it close down.
As if I haven't said enough, I personally would paint the pub Black and White and get a pub sign with maybe an old style David Brown Tractor on Racing to a man with a chequered flag. Or if you could find out if their was a Derby winning Horse from near by that would tie the pub to the county.
I wish you Health,Wealth and Happiness, and the will to succeed.

Unless you want a chippy tea don't bother. The Derby Arms has become a chippy with a pub attached indeed it hasn't even got an extensive chippy menu just fish scampi and burgers

The bloke who served us was tremendous and the food I had was outstanding. I had the steak and ale pie with thick cut chips and it was one of the tastiest meals I've ever had. I asked for a side of colslaw which wasn't on the menu and the waiter brought it over free of charge.

The portion size was superb too. I usually never leave food but on this occasion the pie I had was so large I couldn't finish, even though I was enjoying it so much.

Overall this was exactly what I needed for a nice enjoyable Saturday meal out with my girlfriend and I'll definitely be returning and getting exactly the same plate.

Arrived the Derby Arms at 9:00 pm on Tues 25 Oct. Doors locked. People inside drinking. We were studiously ignored. Very disappointing.

Went there for meal with my partner, her son & partner and a friend on Sat 27th Aug.
Poor girl behind the bar was having to serve drinks, take food orders (13 in restaurant) and deliver them, take payment and serve the bar at the same time !
Specials on blackboard not available.
We had 1 small Haddock, chips etc (Haddock was BIG) - excellent.
2 burger meals - burgers were cheap chip shop variety, overcooked.
1 Cajun chicken - excellent.
1 Lamb chops (3 of) excellent.
Chips were small, reheated "end of frozen bag" I guess, small portions - not impressed with them.
Overall acceptable for a pub meal, but nothing to "write home about".
Felt very sorry for the lone girl having to do it all - she did well !
As this was 5.30-6pm on a Saturday you'd have expected more staff on - especially as there was a big Bible Convention on in the village, and a Tractor pull event not far away.

Disappointed with the service, very slow then proceeded to argue in the reception area re timing, arrival, expediting, serving up 3 mins was 10 mins!
Food was ok.only 6 others there, one other table asked when food was due.
