How the roast dinner shaped up at the Derby Arms

Having decided last minute that my friend and I were up for a good old roast dinner one Sunday, we settled on the Seafood Pub Company’s Derby Arms near Longridge.


Luckily, it was heading on for 3pm, so most people had been and gone by the time we had arrived, therefore we had the pick of where we wanted to sit.

Aside from the grumpy front-of-house man, everything else was perfect. The surroundings were cosy and comfortable and the waiting staff were super attentive. One waitress even went to the cellar to see if there was any more Fentimans left (psst, they serve their gorgeous Rose Lemonade).

The Sunday fare matched the excellent customer service. I tucked into a lamb roast and my friend opted for the beef one, which were £14.50 each. It’s slightly more expensive than the usual roast but then this is a quality meal. Our bellies were happily full with giant Yorkshire puddings, generous cuts of medium/rare meat, cauliflower cheese, roast spuds, green bean, mash potato and carrot and swede mash.

My mate further indulged in a coconut cheesecake with mango jellies and Malibu syrup, a dessert, which looked as good as it tasted (so I’m told), and I chose the mini chocolate orange profiteroles with toasted hazelnuts.

The bill came to £48, that’s for two superb roasts, two desserts, one coffee and three drinks (one alcoholic). And, that’s not bad considering I didn’t need to refuel until the next day.
