A pub on the outskirts of Preston has new owners.Advertisement
The Derby Arms is now part of Inglenook Inns and Taverns.
Gary Patterson and team are taking on the pub in Treales.
Not far from Kirkham the pub is aiming to become a ‘great food destination pub’.
Mr Patterson said: “The Derby Arms has built an excellent reputation for classic pub food, taking full advantage of the marvellous Lancashire produce.
“Since Debbie, I and team are foodies at heart – with a love of cask ales and wine, the Derby Arms is a dream come true.
“This is not only a ‘local’s local’ but also a great food destination pub.
“Hand pumps line the bar while shelves parade an army of gins and malts and the wine cellar has some fine offerings.
“Our menu is something of an eclectic mix. Striking a balance of hearty pub classics complemented by some new dishes and a specials board that ensures something for everyone. It always reflects the seasons, at the same time offering something a little different.”
